Ductility Apparatus

ASTM D 113, ASTM D5976, IP 32, ISO 1208, EN 13398, EN 12589, EN 13703

The computer-controlled ductility apparatus consists of a constant temperature bath capable to work in the range from -10 to 40 °C (thanks to a built-in cooling compressor) with an electrically powered tractor that pulls apart at an selectable speed the two ends of three briquet specimens: a load cell records continuously the force applied to the briquettes and temperature, speed and applied force data are graphically shown on a 8.4” touch screen interface from which it’s also possible to control the equipment itself. Data can be stored and printed by simply connecting any USB printer. Integrated cooling system (No external cooler required).


  • Three load cells mechanically connected to the briquet molds. Range: 0 -200 Newton. Accuracy: 0.1 Newton.

  • Microprocessor thermoregulator with PID action: built-in digital display 0.1°C accuracy. Probe: Pt100 RTD. Working range: from -10 to 40°C.

  • Traction carriage with variable speed motor: the carriage supports up to three briquet molds.

  • Built-in cooling compressor that permits to quickly cool down the liquid in the tank.

  • Traction length: 50, 100 or 150 cm.

  • 8.4” Panel PC with touch screen interface for the control of the equipment. It allows complete control of the apparatus plus data acquisition and storing: temperature and force applied to briquettes are shown in real time and can be saved and printed together with test data such as date, operator etc. Software routines for calibration of temperature, force and elongation sensors.

  • Enamel finished steel case, floor mounted with swivelling castors.

  • Stainless steel bath, thermally insulated, with drain valve.

  • Chromium plated brass pump: it provides an adequate stirring of the liquid in the bath. Switch to turn it off during the test.

  • Stainless steel heater.

  • Independent safety device against overheating and low level with alarm lamp.

  • Acrylic hinged cover: it helps to maintain a constant temperature in the bath providing a clear view of the inside.

  • Automatic stop safety switch that stops the carriage when the maximum elongation has been reached.

  • Stainless steel screen fixed to the bottom of the bath: it permits a better vision of the test while in execution.

  • Easy access control box containing all the electronics.

  • For 220V - 50Hz connections: 1800 W.

  • Dimensions (l x w x h): mm 1800 x 450 x 1300 approx. (100 cm version) 2400 x 450 x 1300 approx. (150 cm version). Weight: 200 kg approx.

  • CE marked.
