TESTING PLASTICS AND COMPOSITES – MP1200 MELT INDEXER
30 Aug 2017
Published by:  Tinius Olsen

The MP1200 Melt Indexer from Tinius Olsen is a superior, advanced, melt indexing system that is available in either manual or motorised configurations and features a new three zone band heater with three controllers that result in unparalleled temperature control of the furnace. When combined with the simple, menu driven, touch screen control you'll agree that the MP1200 is in a league of its own. 

 

All testing hardware is fully complemented by Tinius Olsen developed Horizon software that turns your hardware into a sophisticated quality analysis system. Key Features include:

 

• Conforms to ASTM 1238, D3364, ISO 1133, BS 2782, DIN 53735, JIS K7210 and other similar methods 

• Three zone band heater and three controllers enable an unprecedented temperature control to within 0.1 deg C

• Touch screen control for simple control and setup

• Simple die release system that allows easy access to the barrel for quicker and more efficient cleaning.

• USB connectivity allows multiple MP1200s to be connected to a pc running Horizon software

 

The manual MP1200 Extrusion Plastometer includes the operating tools, piston rod and orifices as standard equipment. Add weights as required and you are set for Procedure A type tests. Weights and reference thermometers are available for all standard and custom applications. Corrosion resistant components are available for testing fluoroplastic resins and fluorocarbon plastics. 

 

The MP 1200 microprocessor-based Controller/Timer is fully interactive with the operator. It features the latest digital technology, a high resolution touch screen display, USB serial communications port, non-volatile memory for calibration and test parameter storage (with power-up in last used program), integral audio alarm, and other related features. 

 

For more automated tests add the PPDT-1200 Automatic Timing Switch for Procedure B - Automatically Timed Flow Rate-type tests and/or any of the other efficiency-boosting accessory packages for even greater automation. 

 

In all cases the menu-driven user interface of the MP 1200 Controller/Timer guides the operator through the test and calculates and displays the test results. And, its serial USB communications port, which is provided as standard, allows interfacing to a printer for test report generation or to a computer using our Horizon software. 

 

Regardless of how you configure your system you'll have a state-of-the-art Melt Indexer unsurpassed in performance and reliability.
