The TAS-0400 Ductility Testing Machine is used to determine the ductility of bituminous materials in a briquette mould by measuring the breaking elongation at a constant speed of 50 mm/min. It is designed for testing 3 specimens simultaneously. The Internal tank is made of stainless steel. The bath is fitted with an immersion heater in order to obtain (in normal conditions), the 25°C test temperature. Each machine comprises of speed control and water circulator to maintain the homogeneous water temperature. The TAS-0420 Ductility Testing Machine with Cooling Unit has the same specifications as TAS-0400 Ductility Testing Machine, but comes with a fitted cooling unit. It is not possible to convert TAS-0400 to TAS-0420.
TAS-0430 Force Ductility Testing Machine has 3 load cells. The accuracy of load cells are ±0,1N with a maximum capacity of 300 N. TAS-0430 has a cooling unit, and is equipped with BC 100 TFT Graphic Display Automatic Control and Data Acquisition Unit. Failure conditions can be downloaded to the Unit. Speed can be set and load-displacement curves are drawn through the software.
Moulds and mould base plates should be ordered separately for all machines.
