The Wallace High Precision Densimeter - X22B

Features

Specific gravity resolution to the third decimal pointStabilizes and displays result in secondsCan also measure material with an SG of less than 1.00Sample volume can be displayed

General Information

The Wallace High Precision Densimeter is a cost efficient inspection instrument, calculating an accurate measurement of specific gravity. With a scale capacity of up to 300g and specific gravity resolution to three decimal places. The X22B is ideal for the inspection of rubber, plastic, sintered metals, glass and ceramics, foods and other materials. Using the optional liquid measuring kit the specific gravity of a liquid can be determined.

The innovative design makes specific gravity measurement simple and results are displayed after an elapsed time which varies according to the mode selected. Zero and tare are set through touch button operation on the front panel. The angle accessory (supplied as standard) enables samples with an SG of less than 1, to be tested. Compensation for temperature and for fluids other than water can be set by the operator. A built-in accuracy check is a standard feature so that if sample weight is insufficient, the final digit will flash. A wind shield is provided to protect the instrument from draughts and dust during operation.

Also available: X21 C with resolution to four decimal places

IRHD Dead Load Hardness Tester - H14

Introduction

The Cogenix Dead Load Hardness tester, Model H14, is a digital, fully automatic bench mounted instrument which is designed to conform to international standards for testing rubber and elastomers. Simply press the start button and the H14 will function automatically allowing accurate and repeatable results to be recorded.

Four models of the H14 are offered: H14/1, the basic model; H14/2, printer model; H14/3, data input terminal and printer model, and H14/4, with Windows compatible software. Wallace Data Collection Software (DCS) is offered with the H14/4. This advanced Windows based software package controls the instrument and allows data to be exported to most commercial spreadsheets, word processors and databases. Saving hours of tedious data entry, DCS is the quick route to the paperless laboratory and secure, fully traceable data. Included in the powerful statistics package, is a Graphical Report Generator, displaying test results in line, point or bar format. Menu options include Mean, Max/Min and Standard Deviation.

Features for all models

The H 14 Dead Load Hardness Tester is available in four different models. The design, the result of considerable consultation with customers, is robust and constructed from aluminium castings which with anti- vibration feet results in exceptional stability.

A major feature of the design is the ease of access in the sample area. A range of Quick Change Tables has been designed to locate different sample cross sections or to locate special jigs and fixtures.

After pressing the start button the Dead Load Hardness Tester operates completely automatically including primary and secondary load application. The result is held on the display at the conclusion of each test.

All versions conform to many National and International Standards.

To find out more about this product contact Wallace

General Information

The Wallace range of Flexing Machines is used to test specially moulded samples for resistance to cracking or cut growth by repeated flexing. Flex testing is recommended when the flexing encountered in service is liable to simulate the action of the test. (e.g. tyre sidewalls).

Cracking and cut growth increase with increasing cycles. The tester is stopped at intervals specified and the cracks evaluated.

Two sets of grips on either side of the frame are reciprocated at constant frequency for a preset number of cycles controlled by a cycle counter.

Samples are loaded so that they are flat when the grip are tightened and flexed but not elongated during tester operation.

The range consists of 6 machines capable of handling 12, 24 or 36 samples in either an unheated cabinet or an oven with digital temperature control having a range of 60°C to 150°C. Easy access to the interior of all six machines is provided through side pivoted front and rear doors. Four recessed lamps provide interior illumination and knurled flywheel is used to rotate the mechanism for easy sample loading. The main shaft is fitted with a balance weight to ensure smooth running.

About us

Company details

Wallace began as general engineers in 1901 working for local Croydon companies and successfully developed a range of machines for the confectionery and food canning industries.

In the late 1930's Wallace became involved in joint development programmes with the Rubber and Plastics Research Association and undertook the design, manufacture and sales of test equipment to evaluate the physical properties of rubber and other polymeric materials.

In the early 1950's Wallace began looking for export markets for its test equipment particularly in the rubber growing regions and in industrialised countries where rubber processing takes place. Since then, export business grew rapidly and now accounts for nearly 80% of our product output (65-70% of turnover) which is sold to over 60 countries worldwide.

A large part of our export business is conducted through distributors and agents. In order to ensure that the Wallace brand is kept at the core of their business activities, regular contact is maintained by phone, fax, letter and email. In 1999 Wallace held their first Dealer Conference, which attracted over 20 distributors and agents from all over the world. The conference provided delegates with an increased knowledge of Wallace products from the sales, marketing and service aspects. The event was a great success.

Our Team

Customer after sales support is critical. Wallace have a service team in the UK and most Wallace distributors and agents carry out service back-up themselves with support from technical staff. We also provide new product and service training both at West Molesey and at the distributor's and agent's premises.

Our Sales team, along with other staff, frequently travel overseas, visiting agents, distributors and their customers. We exhibit at most of the major international exhibitions worldwide. We also regularly advertise in international magazines, which specialise in the rubber industry.

Accurate Testing - Measured Solutions

Over the last few years, we have prepared and presented several technical papers associated with hardness and plasticity at international conferences as well as having some of these published in international magazines.

Through close contact with customers, research associations and our membership of international standards committees (eg BS and ASTM), we are active in devising new world standards for particular types of rubber testing. This provides Wallace with a very competitive edge when introducing new test equipment.
