Manuel softening point machine is used to determine the softening point of the bitumen.
The unit consists of a pyrex breaker, two tapered rings, two ball centering guides and two balls, thermometer, holder and heater.
Weight : 12 kg.
Dimensions : 320x400x455.
Power Supply : 220 – 240V 50/60Hz.
Softening Point (Ring and Ball) Tester
There is a ring and ball test device in asphalt plants used in the construction industry or engineers. This device, which is used to determine the softening point of bitumen, is a very useful product thanks to the fire-resistant beaker.
In other words, the softening point of the asphalt is detected and measured by photoelectric sensors with the softening point device. The experiment is carried out with the homogeneous temperature distribution provided in the container thanks to a magnetic stirrer with a system and clear results are obtained.
This product, which is very useful thanks to its fast-controlled magnetic stirrer feature and electric lifting system, is also a device with heating and cooling system, speed-controlled magnetic stirrer and electric lift system.
Especially when the sensor fails or cannot take a position, the test is automatically stopped and thus safety is ensured. At the same time, when the test cycle is over, the heater automatically turns itself off and the cooling system is activated, thus providing a very convenient and safe use.
What Does a Softening Point Tester Do?
The softening point test device is among the asphalt testing devices used to determine the soft but point of bituminous materials through the ring and ball method. The softening point tester, which is an automatic device with microprocessor control, performs the measurement through balls cast as molds inside the brass rings.
