Crosshead Bearing High Pressure Pneumatic System All TA Instruments rotorless rheometers and curemeters employ a high pressure pneumatic system to seal the sample properly and reproducibly. The high capacity pneumatic system applies up to 8 bar nominal pressure to the sample during gap closure. Proper alignment and the use of mechanical bearings ensure efficient transfer of load from the system to the sample without load frame losses. Actual sealing pressure is measured directly and recorded. This high pressure automated sample containment removes Testing Dies and Rotors The MDR one, RPA...

Density testing is made simple with the TA Instruments fully Automated Density Tester. This fully programmable, automated system measures the density of cured rubber materials using the finite difference (buoyancy) method. Active measurement of the fluid temperature increases accuracy by accounting for small changes in the density of the immersion fluid with temperature. Walk-away Automation Sequential, reliable, and unattended density measurements are made using an automatically fed sample tray with 20 or 30 sample capacity. This true walk-away automation is enhanced with software-driven...
