A range of accessories and other equipment for thermal analysis.
At RSL, we know just how much work is needed to prepare good samples for analysis using DMA and TMA instrumentation. The quality of the results depends on precise parallel cuts and smooth edges. Getting that right can be difficult, especially on softer materials which do not lend themselves to final preparation and smoothing by rubbing them with sandpaper.
To help you to improve the speed and accuracy of your sample preparation while retaining the required sample shape, RSL have developed a new cutting tool which can make the required cuts, quickly and effortlessly. This will give you an immediate improvement in productivity, and will also help to minimise the sample preparation errors which can lead to variability in results.
And if your material range requires it, the cutter can quickly be modified to give wider or narrower cuts, making it possible for you to work within your DMA measurement range quickly and easily.
For TMA, especially for expansion measurements, the cutter will produce cleanly sliced cuts with parallel, flat ends to comply with the sample preparations requirements for ASTM E831 and ISO 11359-2
A suitable press to use with the DMA sample cutter is available from Ruston Services – please inquire. The press we supply has a 1.2kN cutting force, with a 60mm stroke which will deal with most sample types used with the cutting tool.
The cutting tool, the accessory kit, complete with four blades is priced at £1350
