Sample Cutter

Sample preparation for RPA, MDR, and Mooney instruments is made safe and simple with the VS volumetric sample cutter. This dual-action pneumatic system allows for the preparation of uncured rubber specimens of a user-defined volume. Preparing samples in this well-controlled fashion reduces operational variability, greatly improving overall experimental precision.

The VS comes standard with a closing pressure of 6 bar. The sample is first compressed to the user-prescribed thickness, then cut to the die diameter. The closing pressure, and sample volume are user adjustable. Two handed operation and lateral guards guarantee safe operation at all times.

TAM IV

TAM IV is the most sensitive, stable and flexible microcalorimeter system in the world for directly measuring this universal heat signal and, therefore, the quantitative thermodynamic and kinetic observation of any process. It is a unique microcalorimeter system that is completely modular and combines the highest heat flow sensitivity with unmatched long term temperature stability for measuring many processes that are undetectable by other techniques. A wide range of calorimeter configurations and sample handling systems provide maximum application flexibility and ensure optimum laboratory productivity.

DLF 1200

The Discovery Laser Flash DLF 1200 employs a custom Class 1 Nd:Glass Laser pulse source to provide a collimated, monochromatic energy pulse with a 300 μs to 400 μs pulse width. Ideal for labs that need to measure thermal diffusivity, heat capacity or thermal conductivity at temperatures up to 1200°C, or require the power of a laser in a compact benchtop instrument.

Equipped with a liquid nitrogen-cooled IR detector, DLF 1200 provides high precision, quick response, non-contact measurements in air, inert gas or vacuum to 10-3 torr. Simple to operate and safe to use, easy to maintain and very economical to operate, these systems are suitable for research and development programs, as well as quality control.

DXF 900

The Discovery Xenon Flash (DXF) source module employs a High Speed Xenon-pulse Delivery source (HSXD) which has considerably higher efficiency, lower costs and less maintenance than equivalent systems. A reflective optic configuration of our design effectively harnesses the power of a Xenon flash tube and, with the aid of proprietary wave guides, delivers it to the specimen inside the Environmental Module. DXF 900 produces a pulse width of 400 μs to 600 μs and uniformly concentrates the power from the flash source directly on the entire face of the specimen. Due to this optimized optical arrangement and the broad light spectrum, specimens as large as 25 mm in diameter can be illuminated with sufficient energy to make a high-accuracy measurement. The use of large samples diminishes errors associated with inhomogeneity and permits representative measurements of poorly dispersed composites.

DXF 500

The Discovery Xenon Flash (DXF) source module employs a High Speed Xenon-pulse Delivery source (HSXD) which has considerably higher efficiency, lower costs and less maintenance than equivalent systems. A reflective optic configuration of our design effectively harnesses the power of a Xenon flash tube and, with the aid of proprietary wave guides, delivers it to the specimen inside the Environmental Module. DXF 500 produces a pulse width of 400 μs to 600 μs and uniformly concentrates the power from the flash source directly on the entire face of the specimen. Due to this optimized optical arrangement and the broad light spectrum, specimens as large as 25 mm in diameter can be illuminated with sufficient energy to make a high-accuracy measurement. The use of large samples diminishes errors associated with inhomogeneity and permits representative measurements of poorly dispersed composites.

DXF 200+

The Discovery Xenon Flash DXF 200 employs a High Speed Xenon-pulse Delivery source (HSXD) with considerably lower cost and less maintenance than a laser and generates equivalent results. A reflective optic configuration of our design effectively harnesses the power of a Xenon flash tube and, with the aid of proprietary wave guides, delivers it to the specimen inside the Environmental Module. DXF 200 produces a pulse width that is shorter (400 μs to 600 μs) than many commercial laser-based systems, while uniformly concentrating sufficient power from the flash source directly on the entire face of the specimen. Due to this optimized optical arrangement and the broad light spectrum, specimens as large as 25 mm in diameter can be illuminated with sufficient energy to make a high-accuracy measurement. The use of large samples diminishes errors associated with inhomogeneity and permits representative measurements of poorly dispersed composites.

DIL 805A/D Quenching Dilatometers

The DIL805 Series comprises of four models: DIL 805L, DIL 805A are quenching dilatometers, DIL 805A/D is a quenching with the capability to deform the specimen by compression, and DIL 805A/D/T that can also stretch it in tension mode.

All four instruments are fully automated, self-contained units used to measure dimensional changes under extreme conditions of controlled heating and cooling.
