Ductility machine

Category: Bitumen

The apparatus consists of a constant temperature bath capable to work in the range from -10 to 40 °C (thanks to a built-in cooling compressor) with an electrically powered tractor that pulls apart at a determined speed the two ends of two briquet specimens: the elongation is measured by means of a pointer on the tractor and a graduated scale fixed to the cover.

  • Enamel finished steel case, floor mounted with swivelling castors.
  • Stainless steel bath thermally insulated: complete with drain valve.
  • Chromium plated brass pump: it provides an adequate stirring of the liquid in the bath.
  • Stainless steel heater.
  • Microprocessor thermoregulator with PID action: built-in digital display 0.1°C accuracy. Probe: Pt100 RTD. Working range: from -10 to 40°C.
  • Safety device against overheating and low level with alarm lamp.
  • Built-in hermetic cooling compressor: CFC/HCFC-free gas.
  • Acrylic hinged cover: it helps to maintain a constant temperature in the bath providing a clear view of the inside.
  • Traction carriage with two-speed motor for 10 and 50 mm/min: the carriage supports 2 briquet molds. Automatic stop safety switch that stops the carriage when the maximum elongation has been reached. Traction length: 50, 100  or 150 cm.
  • White screen fixed to the bottom of the bath: it permits a more clear vision of the elongated specimen during the test.
  • Easy access control box containing all the electronics: anodized aluminium control panel with english written indications.
  • English written user manual with installation instructions.
  • For 220 V/50 Hz connections: 1800 W power consumption.
  • Dimensions (l x w x h): mm 1800 x 450 x 1300 approx (AD0113-200) mm 2400 x 450 x 1300 approx (AD0113-250). Weight: 250 kg approx.
  • CE marked.
