A three-station deflection temperature under load and Vicat tester, model HDT306, is a complement to this company&146;s existing six-station tester. It addresses a gap in the line of equipment for companies which are looking for less-expensive and low-volume testing machinery. Some of the features included are that the pneumatic test station can be raised and lowered for convenient loading, air bearing guided loading rods provide friction-free operation, and there is a built-in specimen basket to catch dislodged specimens. For higher testing throughput, an optional cooling system can be added to the machine where a water heat exchanger is designed to cool the hot oil and to quickly allow another series of tests to be performed.
