The FOX 50 Heat Flow Meter is an accurate, easy-to-use instrument for measuring thermal conductivity and provides rapid results in a compact footprint. The instrument is configured with the identical high performance features and proprietary technologies of the larger FOX systems including thin film heat flux transducers, digital thickness measurements, responsive temperature control, plus an integrated contact-resistance correction.

DTC 300

DTC 300 is a guarded heat flow meter measuring the thermal conductivity over a wide range of temperatures accordingly to the ASTM E1530 Standard.

It employs one calorimeter module, located in the bottom stack, for the measurement of thermal conductivity, and a side guard furnace to prevent edge heat loss. The contact resistance is minimized by applying a pneumatic load to the test stack, and by using a thermally conductive interface compound.

ADT – Automated Density Tester

Density testing is made simple with the TA Instruments fully Automated Density Tester. This fully programmable, automated system measures the density of cured rubber materials using the finite difference (buoyancy) method. Active measurement of the fluid temperature increases accuracy by accounting for small changes in the density of the immersion fluid with temperature.

AHT – Automated Hardness Tester

The AHT Automated Hardness Tester streamlines the measurement of Shore A hardness for cured rubber materials. This fully programmable, automated system measures the hardness of cured rubber materials according to all international standards for Shore A hardness. Each measurement involves the determination of a user-defined number of single point Shore A values. The individual readings, mean and median of this set are reported for each sample.

MV one

The MV one Mooney Viscometer incorporates the latest measurement technology for the traditional Mooney viscosity, Mooney scorch, and stress relaxation measurement in the rubber industry. The MV one is a fully featured instrument configured for standard viscosity, scorch and stress relaxation (linear, logarithmic, ISO, Mooney Stress-relaxation Rate) testing of rubber compounds under isothermal test conditions at constant speed of 2 rpm. An optional continuously variable motor mode allows tests over a speed range of 0.1 to 10 rpm. The MV one Mooney Viscometer is equipped with low mass rotors that meet all relevant ASTM, ISO, and DIN standards. All TA Instruments rubber testing instruments are constructed on ultra-rigid test frames and include direct drive motors, precision temperature control and the powerful and intuitive Scarabaeus Control and Analysis Software.

MDR one

The MDR one Moving Die Rheometer (MDR) is a reliable, accurate, and easy-to-operate rotorless curemeter perfect for routine and standards-driven testing of rubber curing. The MDR one is configured for measuring curing profiles of rubber compounds under isothermal and non-isothermal test conditions at constant strain and frequency.The MDR one employs sealed biconical dies meeting all relevant ASTM, ISO, and DIN standards.The unique design includes an ultra-rigid test frame, direct drive motor, precision temperature control with optional cooling, available Autosampler, and intuitive Scarabaeus Control and Analysis software making it the ideal platform for QC or R&D environments.

RPA flex

The RPA flex, Rubber Process Analyzer, is the new standard in rotorless oscillating shear curemeters. In addition to the standard tests of cure at fixed strain and frequency, the RPA flex can be configured to include variable strain, frequency, advanced LAOS testing, and sample pressure measurement. The RPA flex features a wide range torque transducer and variable sealing pressure and pressure sensor. Employing sealed biconical dies, the RPA flex meets all relevant ASTM, ISO, and DIN standards for rubber and elastomer characterization. The unique design includes an ultra-rigid test frame, variable direct drive motor, precision temperature control with optional cooling, available Autosampler, and powerful Scarabaeus Control and Analysis Software, making it the ideal platform for QC or R&D environments.

RPA elite

The TA Instruments RPA elite rubber process analyzer (RPA) is the most advanced rotorless oscillating shear rheometer dedicated to the complete characterization of polymers, rubber and rubber compounds at all stages of manufacture. The RPA elite provides invaluable viscoelastic data on materials that are uncured, through the curing process, and in situ cured materials. The ultra-rigid test frame, high-resolution variable direct drive motor, ultra-stiff wide-range torque transducer, and precision temperature control provide the most precise and accurate torque, viscosity and viscoelastic properties of elastomers over the widest ranges of testing conditions. The fully flexible architecture of the RPA elite enables advanced testing capabilities beyond any other rubber rheometer including: complete post cure viscoelastic characterization, fully programmable sealing pressure, large amplitude oscillatory shear (LAOS) and arbitrary waveform deformations.

ARES-G2

The ARES-G2 is the most advanced rotational rheometer for research and material development. It remains the only commercially available rheometer with a dedicated actuator for deformation control, Torque Rebalance Transducer (TRT), and Force Rebalance Transducer (FRT) for independent shear stress and normal stress measurements. It is recognized by the rheological community as the industry standard to which all other rheometer measurements are compared for accuracy.

TAM IV-48

TAM IV-48 is a high-throughput version of the TAM IV and can accommodate up to 48 individual 4 mL Minicalorimeters.

The large number of independent and parallel sample-measurements makes this system the optimal solution for sample screening, formulation, and process development. It is equally useful in research laboratories as in industrial laboratories including pharmaceutical production control.
