Performing compression set at low temperatures (ISO 815-2) without having to open the low temperature cabinet and influence the compression set result has always been a problem.
The EV09 compression set rig from Elastocon AB.
Elastocon AB, the Swedish test equipment manufacturer, has introduced a new compression rig, the EV09, which permits the whole test including the recovery measurement to be performed without touching the test piece.
Data can be recorded manually or automatically and all adjustments are made outside the chamber thus improving the accuracy of the test results.
Existing users of Elastocon stress relaxation rigs for ambient and elevated temperatures can buy a kit to convert to EV 09 specifications.
Elastocon instruments are available in the UK form Nortest.
