Used to determine the bituminous ductility, that is to say, the distance to which a briquette of molten bitumen can be extended under control-led conditions, before its breaking.
The Ductilometer basically consists of a moving carriage travelling along guide ways. The carriage is driven by an electrical motor, inside a large tank which is fitted with digital thermostat, immersion electric heater, cooling coil for cold water circulation and pump unit. This model works in an automatic way at a speed of 50 mm/min. and its max. Stroke is 1500 mm.
The tank and the external frame are all made from stainless steel with fiberglass insulation.
Water bath temperature is maintained constant at 25°C ± 0, 5°C. by a digital thermoregulator. The unit is equipped of a dual safety thermostat to prevent accidental over-temperatures.
Max. traction force: 300 N, accuracy: ± 0,1 N
The ductilometer can accept up to 3 specimens simultaneously.
