OVERVIEW

Presto Melt Flow Index tester is used for evaluating the flow properties of molten plastics or resins. The Melt flow Index of thermoplastic materials is defined as the rate of flow (in grams per ten minutes) of extrudates of molten resins through a jet of a particular length and diameter. The test is carried out under prescribed condition of temperature, load and piston position in a cylindrical cavity inside a heated metallic tube barrel. The Presto Melt Flow Index tester accurately provides all standard terms of temperature and pressure strictly as per standards ASTM D 1238-1992, ISO 1133, IS 2267-1972, IS 2530-1963, IS 10810-1984.

Presto Melt Flow Index tester is fitted with a Microprocessor based PID Temperature controller, with a temperature range from ambient to 400°C. It has a resolution of 0.1°C and an accuracy of ± 0.1°C. The instrument incorporates a digital presettable timer with a range of up to 59 minutes; 59 seconds and buzzer output. The provision of automatic sample cutting ensures the accuracy and smooth operation.

The equipment is built on a rigid metal base plate to ensure stability during operation. The Presto Melt Flow Index tester is finished in Autumn Gray & Blue combination painting. Further, a bright chrome / zinc plating has been added to impart a corrosion resistant finish. The Instrument comes complete with an instruction manual; Electrical Wiring Diagram & Calibration Certificate traceable to NABL approved Labs.

REVIEWS


With the highly efficient and accurate Melt Flow Index Tester by Presto, Now I can test the Melt flow rate of the plastic resins in very less time and great accuracy. With the help of this instrument, now we can commence the injection molding processes with great accuracy and precision

— Rohit Kumar

First step of polymer industry is choosing the perfect raw material. Melt Flow Index is of great help in choosing the granules of perfect flow rate. I now can test the flow rate myself instead of relying on what vendor is claiming.

— Pankaj Pathak

The automatic cutting of flowing sample has an amazing accuracy and is simply easy to use. Our team of operators have been using it for more than 7 months now and have submitted zero complaints.
