We offer a
range of thermal cabinets and furnaces for all of our twin
column universal testing machines.
Our standard thermal cabinet, the TC550 allows tests to be
performed from ambient up to 300®C. This unit also has the
option of connection to a liquid Nitrogen supply which
allows testing down to -70®C. The TC550 is mounted on wheels
which run on a separate base unit for forward and backward
movement. When the cabinet is in the rear position it is
clear of the test machine crosshead and normal ambient tests
are possible. A glass observation panel in the front door
allows the specimen to be inspected during the test.
For applications up to 950®C we offer the TCF950 high
temperature furnace together with furnace rods, fixings and
extensometry if required. The TC550 and TCF950 are
controlled by sophisticated temperature control units that
are housed in a separate control console.
