Tinius Olsen to Launch New MP1200 Melt Indexer at National Plastics Exposition(February 29, 2012)
HORSHAM, PA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/29/12 -- Tinius Olsen is about to make users of its popular MP600 melt indexer very happy -- with availability of its new, significantly upgraded MP1200 melt indexer. Its next generation extrusion plastometer offers a host of significant features that customers will appreciate. The MP1200 will soon be on display at Booth 51017 at the National Plastics Exposition, April 2-5, 2012, Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, FL.
In terms of performance, the MP1200 uses three-zone temperature control, to give unprecedented levels of accuracy and thermal stability. Three platinum RTD sensors ensure that the temperature of the furnace can be maintained to within 0.1 degree Centigrade, with a resolution of 0.01 degree Centigrade, and to allow for a temperature variation of 0.1 degree Centigrade along the barrel.
Ease of use is made possible by an integral touch screen control panel whose user-friendly operator interface is based upon Tinius Olsen's popular Horizon software. The MP1200 has basic data analysis and built in, but also includes easy USB connectivity to printer, for direct printing of results, or to a PC, which when running Tinius Olsen's Horizon software gives direct machine control and powerful SPC capabilities.
Generous insulation makes the MP1200 cool to the touch. A convenient die release enables simple orifice removal for cleaning. A built-in mirror allows easy inspection of the barrel. An efficient weight design with taper ensures safer loading and unloading. Leveling of the base is simple and robust.
An optional specimen cutter is available for manual or automatic tests. The MP1200 can be used to conduct Procedure A or B tests. It conforms to ASTM D1238 and D3364, ISO 1133, BS 2782, DIN 53735, and JIS K7210.
