This high technology digital microprocessor tester, designed and manufactured by Matest, automatically determines the softening point of asphalts and pitches.
Two laser sensors detect the balls fall determining the softening point.
The bath temperature is measured by an electronic system maintaining
the gradient (5 °C/min) as specified by the Standards.
A magnetic stirrer with electronic speed adjustment from 0 to 160 rpm also ensures a uniform temperature in the vessel during the test execution.
The fan cooling system enables to quickly cool down the samples, allowing to perform many more tests per day.
The touch-screen graphical interface allows an easy set up of the parameters and the immediate execution of the test.
High resolution color display, 1/4 VGA, offers all the functions of a PC for the management and analysis of data, test results, and graphs.
Two test parameters can be selected in the microprocessor menu:
The tester is basically composed of:
Power supply: 230V 1ph 50-60Hz 700W
Dimensions: 500x350xh550 mm
Weight: 20 kg approx.
