Volumetric Sample Cutter
Volumetric sample preparation for all Rheometers and our Rheoline Rheometer range (MFR, MDR, and ODR) is made simple and safe with the Rheoline VSC Volumetric Sample Cutter. This ergonomic designed pneumatic system enables precise user defined volume of uncured rubber and polymer material. The conveniently positioned and comfortable buttons are designed to work simultaneously to provide a safe working environment.
Experienced users of curemeters are fully aware of the need to maintain consistency with the shape, size and volume of each sample inserted into the die cavity. To obtain the best performance from your curemeter, it is strongly recommended the every sample is the exact volume and shape thus ensuring the die cavity is filled with only the correct amount flowing into the spill cavity. If there is too little material the test results may be affected be slippage and if too much material is inserted the platens may not seal correctly resulting in imprecise measurement.
The constant Volume Sample Cutter operates in two distinct ways:
- The material is first compressed to a predetermined thickness.
- The cutting action takes place, ensuring an exact and constant sample volume.
