This tester evaluates the flow properties of molten plastic during the forming process. The molten test specimen, inside the cylinder heated to a specific temperature, is extruded from the capillary die. During the extrusion, the shear stress and the shear viscosity is measured for calculating the melt viscosity of the test specimen. The tester is equipped with an automatic cleaning system which enables the operator to continuously run a single complete test cycle (option of 3 test cycles). The tester can be chosen between a Light Load Type and a Heavy Load Type according to the test specimen’s maximum load.
