This will ensure accuracy in test results.

Importance of testing melts flow properties of polymers

Testing the melt flow process of polymers is of great importance in various industries, including plastics manufacturing, packaging, and consumer goods. The melt flow process refers to the behaviour of a polymer when it is heated to a molten state and subjected to pressure during moulding or extrusion.

By conducting melt flow tests, manufacturers can gain valuable insights into the flow properties of the polymer, such as its melt viscosity, melt flow rate, and melt volume rate. This information is crucial for process optimization, as it allows manufacturers to adjust processing parameters, such as temperature, pressure, and screw speed, to achieve the desired flow behaviour and ensure consistent quality of the final product.

Moreover, melt flow testing helps in selecting the appropriate polymer grade for specific applications, as it provides insights into its processability and ability to flow through intricate moulds or extrusion dies.

Testing the melt flow process of polymers enables manufacturers to enhance productivity, improve product quality, and optimize manufacturing processes.

Q. What is the use of melt flow index tester?

The Role of the melt flow indexer is testing and analyzing the flow properties of plastic. Compliant with industry standards, The melt flow index tester adheres to ASTM D 1238, IS 2267, IS-2530, and IS 10810. The MFI tester plays a crucial role in the PET and polymer industry. The melt flow rate is an essential measure based on which we can decipher the physical and chemical properties of any material. The Melt Flow Index Tester or Melt flow Indexer for granules and molten thermoplastic resins is generally used by manufacturers before the production process and it shows the melt flow index rate.

Q. What is the procedure for determining MFI?

A limited quantity of the polymer test (around 4 to 5 grams) is taken in the uncommonly planned MFI contraption. The bucket with an opening of commonly around 2 mm distance across is embedded into the mechanical assembly. The material is pressed appropriately inside the barrel to keep away from the development of air pockets. A cylinder is presented which goes about as the medium that causes the expulsion of the liquid polymer. The example is preheated for a predetermined measure of time: 5 min at 190 °C for polyethylene and 6 min at 230 °C for polypropylene. After the preheating a predefined weight is presented onto the cylinder. Instances of standard loads are 2.16 kg, 5 kg, and so forth. The weight applies power to the liquid polymer and it quickly begins coursing through the pass on.

Q. What is the price of a MFI testing machine in UAE?

The price of a melt flow indexer can differ depending on the model and instrument. While the price range starts from as low as AED 2211, it can go up to AED 8845 for high-end instruments. You may find the same product in different price ranges in the market. Most of the cheap products come from unbranded manufacturers/traders with no guarantee while the branded products of reputed manufacturers maintain high quality

Q. From where to buy a genuine melt flow index testing machine?

You need to find a renowned manufacturer to buy a genuine Melt flow index tester. There are several traders in the market, but not everyone is a genuine manufacturer and can provide you with authentic and high-quality products. For that reason, you need to check if they have their own manufacturing unit and dedicated service set up. Customers must always check if the manufacturer has a dedicated and reliable in-house service set up.

Q. How to get a free quotation for a melt flow index (MFI) testing machine?

To get a free price quotation for the Melt flow index tester you can contact the company with your requirement, details from their mail id and phone number. To get a quotation from Testronix Instruments fill the form with requirements and you will get an instant call-back from the sales for the techno-commercial offer.
