Melt Flow Index Tester manufacturers and suppliers design one of the most accurate machines that is used for measuring the melt flow of a polymeric material. In the world of polymers, there are different parameters set to define their quality and features. These features define the usability and properties of the polymers.
The manufacturers of the polymeric substances need to assess these properties accurately to ensure the best required quality of the end products. One such property is the melt flow index. The melt flow index is the unit which is used to determine the rate of flow of a polymeric material in its molten state. The MFI can be defined as the mass of the polymer in its molten state that can flow through a capillary tube with specific dimensions under the effect of a shearing pressure that is applied on the material with the help of weights and gravity. The MFI plays a significant role in deciding the physical properties as well as the structure of the polymer. The greater the melt flow index, lower will be the mechanical strength of the polymer and hence the end products.
The Melt Flow Index Tester offered by Pacorr is one of the best equipments that is used widely across the industry when it comes to measuring melt flow index of any thermoplastic polymer. Melt flow rate is one of the most important properties of a polymer as it can tell a lot about the physical and chemical properties of the material. IT is important for the manufacturers in plastic industry to test the melt flow index of any material before commencing any production process so that it could be defined that which process will be best for the material. Additionally, it also helps determining the possible quality standards of the end product.
To measure the melt flow rate of a test material, the material is placed in the instrument and then it heated so that it is in molten state. Then a specific amount of pressure is exerted on the molten material with the help of a piston and testing weight. The molten material passes through a capillary orifice with a certain predefined diameter for ten minutes. After that, the passed material is weighed which gives the exact measure of the melt flow rate of the material. For accurate measure of the MFI, the equipment comes with different weights to apply the pressure on the specimen. The instrument is also provided with electrical display which allows the users to monitor and measure the temperature and other parameters during testing. The quality standards that are followed in manufacturing of MFI tester include ASTM D 1238 and ISO 1133. The Melt Flow Index Tester manufacturers and suppliers ensure that it is a simple and easy to use instrument that plays a critical part in quality check in the polymer industry. This allows the manufacturers in the industry to evaluate the chemical as well as physical properties of a polymeric material in a very convenient manner for best quality of the end products.

Can melt flow index tester be used at a place where there are moist conditions?
Pacorr ensures that only the highest grade materials are used for fabrication of the instruments. The melt flow index tester offered by us is made from very high grade mild steel and it is duly powder coated. The heat sensors and other electronic components have also been procured from credible vendors that offer longer service life. This all makes the instrument resistant to corrosion and unaffected from other environmental factors.
Do the dead weights come with the Device?
Dead weights are necessary to apply the shearing force on the melted test sample as per the international standards. The Pacorr offers the dead weights that are made from stainless steel and are calibrated precisely for better accuracy of the test data.
What materials can be tested using Melt Flow Index Tester?
Melt flow index tester can be used for testing any material that has a substantial amount of viscosity after being I a molten state. Normally the materials that are tested using the device include the plastic grains, polymer resin and plastic granules to determine their melt flow rate and analyse their chemical and physical properties.
Is the operation of the device automatic?
The Melt Flow Index Tester Offered by Pacorr comes in two different models. In one model, the sample is cut down manually after ten minutes of testing as prescribed in the international testing standards. The second model that is offered by Pacorr has an automatic mechanism the cuts the sample automatically after every ten minutes and then it is weighed to determine the melt flow rate of the sample.
Is the weighing scale included with the device?
No, The weighing scale is not included with the device but can be obtained on request with the device at an additional cost.
