Melt Flow Tester Market Introduction

Melt flow index is the measure of the viscosity of the polymer melt at a given temperature. Melt flow tester simply tests the melt flow index, which is also called as volume flow rate of the polymer melt or melt mass flow rate. One can test the melting properties of the polymers with the help of melt flow tester. Melt flow tester is necessary for understanding the behavior of the polymer for various processing techniques. Melt flow tester generally made up of a cylinder surrounded by a coil used for heating the material for testing. The coil is provided with the insulation, to control heat loss. The material is deposited by a piston provided with a standard weight. Melt flow tester tests the mass of the material flow through the die in the specified time, and calculates the melt flow index of the material. ASTM D1238 and ISO 1133 standards are the common for using the melt flow tester. These standards are used for defining the specifications and test methods for equipment. Prices of melt flow tester varies with the various options in the equipment. Automations in the melt flow tester increases its prices accordingly.
