The RKA 5 instrument features a microprocessor technology combined with a smart Jog-Wheel operation system. It maintains program sequences for all relevant test

standards and bath liquids as well as for user defined

test conditions.

An infrared radiator along with a controlled magnetic stirrer ensure the optimum test conditions, the four-wire Pt-100 and the laser-based ball detection probe guarantee precise test results.

A draft deflector stabilizes ambient and

homogeneous heating conditions, the lifting traverse simplifies setup and handling with the test rack. An optional automatical system leads and dispenses the balls to the specimens.

The test procedure is supported by intelligent software routines. At the end an automated test assessment is done. Heat gradients are precisely recorded and are available as printouts. Test results can be stored in the instrument and / or transfered via USB.

Keyboard or barcode scanner options may be helpful when using the advanced firmware Pmove™ embedded in the instrument.

Scope of Application

To determine the lowest temperature at which a mercury load deforms a sample under standardized conditions.

Suitable for carbonaceous materials like pitch and other materials melting above +30°C.

Summary of Method

A BARTA-tube filled with a

sample is connected to a glass-tube and loaded with mercury. Two samples are heated in a liquid bath. At rising temperatures the sample deforms under the weight of the mercury.

The softening-point is reported

as

the temperature at which

the

mercury breaks through the

softening sample.

With the ductility machines of the DDA 3 series the afore mentioned procedures can be performed automatically. Except for recovery tests, 3 tests can be performed simultaneously.

The drive is microprocessor controlled and uses

a stepping motor and a feed rod. Both are located

outside the tempering bath and therefore are not affected by corroding influences of the bath liquid. The tempering bath itself is double-walled with an outer water circulation system. The tractor cradle is made of stainless steel as well as the bath walls.

If extremely thin threads are measured, the built-in

circulation pump for the inner bath can be switched off.

A very even and exact temperature can be obtained

in the bath by the connection of a good coolant circulator and due to several temperature probes plus the transparent bath cover.

Traction speed, elongation and pauses can be pre- set on the control unit. During the whole test run the tensile force on each line is permanently measured. The maximum tensile force may be up to 300 Newton’s per line.

With the DDA 3 a minimum tensile force margin can be set. When a bitumen briquette ruptures and the tensile falls below this setting, the pertinent elongation will be stored and the machine will be stopped automatically after all three briquettes have broken.

There is a special program for recovery tests of polymer-modified bitumen. The bitumen briquette will be expanded to a pre-set

elongation, then the tractor (after a pause) returns to

a position where no more stress is in the material,

equivalent to the cut-up state of the specimen.

If due to any recovery of the material a tension should

occur, the tractor will move until there is a stress-free condition again.

The control unit is equipped with two RS232

interface. This allows to connect a serial printer and

a PC to record all test parameters, the final values

on each test line as well as peaks with their pertinent

elongation. Further, the DDA 3 has analog output sockets so that force/elongation curves can be drawn.

The ductility meters are also available as DD 3 in a basic version without force measurement. These models have a digital indication of the elongation only.

A program for recording, saving and graphic presentation of DDA values.

Replacing analog line recorder or serial data-printer, allows to control the DDA by PC, the data-transfer to MS EXCEL® or LIMS and simplifies the download of firmware-upgrades. The sample status of up to 3 samples will be displayed simultaneously, indicating the traction distance or for Recovery-tests the percentage of relief and the total energy. Significant points like the local minimum, maximum, turn-points of in- & decreasing flanks and tangent-points can be determined automatically and displayed as diagram or chart. The numerical display of force or distance for a single point on the curve is possible, too. Individual diagram areas can be increased, curves can be hidden or indicated numerically. Since every sample will be saved under an individual filename, it is possible to compare 3 samples of different tests with each other. The evaluated data can be exported as ASCII-files. They include information like the sample name, file name, user ID, date & time, duration, program, speed, temperature at start & end, status and distance & force.

Scope of Application
Scope of Application

Used to determine the plasticity of a wide range of materials, as well as for the evaluation of such theological characteristics as rheopexy and thixotropy.

Suitable for bituminous materials and hot-applied pavement sealants & fillers.

Needle-Penetration:

To measure the consistency of semi-solid and solid bituminous mixtures. Rod-Penetration:

To measure the apparent viscosity (Bitumen N°) of filler aggregates used in bituminous mixtures. Cone-Penetration:

To determine the consistency of hot-applied, fuel-resistant joint sealants with or without being immersed in fuel or oil.

Summary of Method Penetration is the resistance which a material under specified conditions of test provides against being pierced by a specifically shaped penetrator. Beside the configuration of the penetrator used, prime importance attaches to such

factors of temperature, time and load of test as are specified by the different standard methods

of test.

A sample is filled in a specified

container and conditioned in a temperature bath. Then a standardized penetrator is vertically dropped on the specimen to measure the penetration depth.

Higher values of penetration indicate softer consistency.

Higher values of penetration indicate softer consistency. Display Penetration Penetration & & Texture

The PNR 12 belongs to the group of conventional gravity-penetrometers used for the determination of consistency of highly viscous and plastically workable stuff. A test body is precisely lowered to the surface of the material under test, and then sinks into the matter by its own weight during a defined test duration. This penetration, which is indicated in Penetration Units of 1/10 mm per unit or directly in millimeters, and allows a rating of the plasticity or consistency.

Used to measure load forces

as well as tensile stresses, which occur when a test body is pushed into the tested material

or withdrawn.

Suitable for bituminous materials, hot-applied pavement sealants & fillers and cement.

Summary of Method

A texture analyzer measures

the forces, which occur when a test body is pushed with a pre- programmed speed into the tested material or pulled out.

The forces affecting the test body are measured and indicated in the form of a “displacement/force curve“ or

as a“force/time function“

This allows to determine information about the aging, the maturity or the curing, as well as the estimated subsequent processing of a sample.

Plastic & Elastic Properties - Texture Method - PNR 21

The PNR 21 is a compact but highly flexible texture analyzer, that demonstrates the forces, which occur when the properly chosen test body is pushed into the tested material or withdrawn.

Especially due to its easy and convenient handling the apparatus allows a quick and economical examination

of the plastic & elastic properties of pasty materials. PNR 21 Rheotex uses different test bodies. It depends on the measurement problem, whether a needle, a cone, a cylindrical or platelike ram is applied. These test bodies are mounted to a support-arm with force sensor which is attached to a vertically movable carriage. The load or tensile forces, which affect the force sensor, when the carriage moves up or down are indicated on a computer screen as a force/displacement diagram or as a displacement/time function.

Main Units

The instrument permits to monitor curing and congealing reactions of adhesives, mortars etc. or to observe the behaviour of sealing matter and cements.

The creation of test programs is very easy. Either made directly on the instrument or by using PNRCon software and a PC with Windows. The use of a computer does not only enable a much easier and more extensive creation of test procedures, but also allows their storage and reloading.
