Model 603 & 303 HDT

    The Model 603 HDTM and the Model 303 HDTM are the latest generation of Tinius Olsen’s digitally controlled Automatic Deflection Temperature/Vicat test equipment. The 603 HDTM is capable of testing up to six different specimens simultaneously, the smaller 303 HDTM can test up to three specimens simultaneously, both with an automated testing sequence that proceeds according to user defined control and configuration parameters.

    The basic Model 603 HDTM includes a six station bath, two test stations, and a handheld terminal, and up to four more stations can be added. The basic Model 303 HDTM includes a three station bath, two test stations, and a handheld terminal. Each test frame can be configured with optional accessories for either Vicat or deflection temperature testing, including 4” or 100 mm edgewise or 64 mm flatwise deflection temperature. Additionally, the machines are ready to be linked to Tinius Olsen’s HDV software so that the PC can configure the controller, collect the test data, generate a test report, and save the results.

    All test stations are pneumatically raised from the bath at the touch of a button on the handheld terminal, allowing easy placement of the test specimens. Once the specimens are loaded into the respective test positions, all stations are lowered collectively into the oil bath and the test can start.



Features & Benefits

Conforms to ISO 75, ISO 306, ASTM D648, and ASTM D1525
Fully automatic control of entire test cycle
Bath has port with an exhaust fan to remove interior oil fumes
Air bearing-guided loading rods for virtually friction-free load application
Electronic transducers integrated into the loading rod assemblies for 0.001 mm resolution of deflection or penetration
Loading nose and rod assemblies provide 76 grams nominal load for ISO 75 ‘flatwise’ deflection temperature tests on 4 mm x 10 mm specimens at 0.45 Mpa stress
Built-in heat exchanger for rapid system cool down
Pneumatic station lift for easy specimen insertion and removal
Automatic correction for thermal expansion of test frames
Built-in specimen basket to catch any dislodged specimens
Accessories available include additional test stations, deflection temperature loading noses, Vicat loading noses and needles, weights, 64 mm span supports for ‘flatwise’ deflection temperature testing (the stations are predrilled to accept these supports)
