Low Temperature Impact Testing Chambers and Large Impact Areas
Thermostatic Test Chambers for Impact TestsThe impact area of Instron drop weight impact testing machines is extremely flexible. Users can perform low temperature Impact Puncture, CAI, Wedge-peel, Tensile Impact, Charpy & Izod tests to International test standards (ASTM, ISO) as well as Internal test standards (AITM, Automotive and more). Whether you are testing a specimen or a component, at room temperature or at low/high temperatures, Instron has the solution.
The base of the drop weight testing machine can be equipped with different test chambers:
- Standard Room Temperature Base
(700 W x 720 D x 570 Hmm / 27.5 W x 28.3 D x 22.4 H in)
- 1 Standard Conditioning Chamber
(550 W x 550 D x 500 H mm / 21.6 W x 21.6 D x 19.7 H in) with standard or large window from -70 °C (-94 °F) up to 150 °C (302 °F)
- 2 Large Room Temperature Base
(1200 W x 730 D x 745 H mm / 47.2 W x 28.7 D x 29.3 H in)
- 3 Large Room Temperature Base
(1200 W x 730 D x 745 H mm / 47.2 W x 28.7 D x 29.3 H in) with extractible conditioning chamber (550 W x 550 D x 500 H mm / 21.6 W x 21.6 D x 19.7 H in
The thermostatic chamber is managed by Bluehill Impact Software: it is possible to assign different temperatures to specimens and control the temperature inside the chamber directly from the main window.
