Compact and very easy to use, the instrument features an accurate torque application system with a broad angular measurement range, a fully automatic system of presetting periods of torque.
The apparatus is equipped with a set of weights allowing to apply a wide range of torques to specimens having different dimensions, in fact, the distance between the clamps can be varied in the range 20 – 100 mm. It is, thus, possible to accurately measure the apparent modulus of elasticity on specimens obtained from a wide range of materials. The modulus is, in this case, defined as apparent as it is obtained measuring the angular torsion of the specimens under test. The cooling is obtained by liquid nitrogen - source non included.
