Product Description

The Melt Flow Index Tester or MFI Tester helps in testing the flow properties of plastics. The melt flow indexer machine is used to calculate the melt flow of thermoplastic polymers. The physical and chemical properties of any material can be analyzed on the basis of the melt flow rate. The melt flow rate is an important measure in the PET and polymer industry.

 

The melt flow index test has to be conducted by manufacturers’ prior production. A digital display is another feature which helps in accurate measurement of results. The melt flow index (MFI) consists of a microprocessor based PID temperature controller which a range of 0 degrees to 400 degree Celsius. It has very high precision with a resolution of 0.1 degree Celsius. The equipment adheres to all industry standards (ASTM D 1238, IS 2267, IS-2530, IS 10810).

Working Principle melt flow index (MFI) tester

The melt flow index (MFI) tester operates on a straightforward principle to measure the flow properties of thermoplastic materials. It involves heating a sample of the material to a specified temperature until it melts, then applying a constant pressure to extrude the molten material through a standardized die.

 

The rate at which the material flows through the die, measured in grams per 10 minutes, is known as the melt flow rate (MFR). This measurement is indicative of the material's viscosity and flow behaviour under specific conditions.

 

By controlling the temperature, pressure, and dimensions of the die, the MFI tester provides valuable insights into the rheological properties of the material, aiding in quality control, process optimization, and material selection in various industries.

Applications of melt flow indexer:

  • Plastic industry
  • Polymer Industry
  • Thermoplastic testing
  • Resins Testing
  • Rubber Industry

Advantages MFI tester machine:

Testing MFI is essential for thermoplastic materials. It helps with understanding how they flow. The flow rate shows how thick the material is and how it moves. This is vital for making sure products are always consistent in the quality.

 

Also, MFI testers are very consistent and can provide dependable and precise measurements. This consistency is important for checking quality, helping manufacturers spot any differences in material properties and fix them quickly.

 

Also, MFI testing is a non-destructive method for material being tested. This makes it good for regular quality checks without harming the samples. It's safe and reliable. Testronix Melt Flow index tester offers precise and accurate measurements of melt flow properties of the samples with ease.

 

Also, MFI testing is flexible and can be used with many types of thermoplastic materials, like plastics, resins, and mixtures. This flexibility makes it a useful tool for scientists and makers working with different materials in many industries.

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?
