MELT FLOW INDEXERS


Melt Flow Indexer (Plastometer), often known as Melt Flow Index Tester is used in the laboratory to measure the melt flow index (MFR / MFI) in the unit of g/10min and the melt volume flow rate (MVR) in the unit of cm³/10min of thermoplastic polymer in the form of pellets, powder or fine granules. The Melt Flow Index Testers are designed to perform melt flow rate testing according to EN ISO 1133 and ASTM D1238 standard. The testing instrument can be configured individually by means of various automated accessories and many options to adapt to applications.

Melt indexer with automatic weight selection can carry out tests according to ISO 1133 and ASTM D 1238, procedures B, as well as ISO 1133 and ASTM D 1238 procedure C for the "Half Height / Half Diameter" standard and procedure D for the FRR test (Flow Rate Ratio) and ASTM D 3364. Also the manual procedure A is possible to perform.

The IV Tester is to determine the intrinsic viscosity (IV), which is also called solvent viscosity (SV), without the use of chemical solvents. Intrinsic viscosity is used to characterize the average molecular weight of PET and PA-based polymers.

Available in: Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam



Melt Flow Indexers Product


IV Tester

The IV TESTER is a simple device for the determination of Intrinsic Viscosity (IV or SV value), with no chemical solvents are used. This IV Tester is used in particular for quality control of polyester (PET) or polyamide (PA).

MI-2 series

The mi-2 Melt Flow Index series can carry out a single weight test according to ISO 1133 and ASTM D1238, procedures A, B and C. In addition it runs tests according to ASTM D 3364. The mi-2 easily performs melt-flow-rate (MFR), as well as melt-volume-rate (MVR) measurements. Due to the modular design of this system, it is possible to automate the measurement process step by step. The extrusion plastometer can be used either as a stand-alone instrument, or it can be run with a computer software for statistical analysis and data management. Depending on options, GÖTTFERT Melt Flow Index machines offer additional benefits, besides from just running according to ISO and ASTM. One such example would be obtaining elongational information.

MODEL: MI-2.1, MI-2.2, MI-2.3


MI-3

The Melt Flow Index Tester MI-3 enables to measure the melt-flow-rate (MFR) and the melt-volume-rate (MVR) with a semi-automatic instrument.
