A new, fully automatic Creep and Stress Relaxation tester based on the Elastocon stress relaxation apparatus and triple temperature oven has been launched by the Swedish test equipment company.
Suitable for testing in accordance with ISO 3384, ISO 899 and similar standards, the EB18 is capable of much more. All operations apart from sample loading are software controlled and tests can be carried out in both compression and tension, in air or liquids and at precise ambient or elevated temperatures.
Utilising servo motors and load cells to apply and hold the load offers the opportunity to run load and temperature ramps controlled by the computer making this an extremely versatile instrument.
