Ductility Testers are mounted in a heating and cooling circulator for complete temperature control and measure elongation of an asphalt binder specimen before failure.
The Temperature-Controlled Ductility Testers mount in a stainless steel water bath to precisely control test temperatures, and can test three standard ductility specimens at the same time. They are equipped with a heating/cooling fluid circulation system that uses an immersion heater and refrigerating unit to digitally regulate temperatures from 5° to 25°C ±0.5° (41° to 77°F ±0.9°). Temperature set points are programmed through the included digital controller/display. Dual safety thermostats prevent temperature over-runs. Operation is vibration-free with a maximum stroke of 1,500mm and constant travel speed of 50mm per minute maintained via a direct-drive motor. Maximum force is 300 ±0.1N (67 ±0.02lbf). A traveling pointer indicates exact position of the carriage on a fixed scale. Operates at 115V/60Hz. The ductility testers are housed in an enamel outer steel case, with fiberglass-insulated interior stainless steel walls.
Ductility Molds and Base Plates are used for testing specimens and sold separately.
