Melt Flow Index Model MP1200

The MP1200 melt flow tester/extrusion plastometer features the latest in melt flow measurement technology and allows operators to quickly and easily set up and perform melt flow tests according to ASTM D1238, ISO 1133-1 & 2, and other international and industrial specifications.

The MP1200 is available in two distinct versions: the manual MP1200 and the motorized MP1200M. The manual MP1200 comes with everything you need - except weights and laboratory balance - to perform an ASTM D1238 Procedure A (manual cut) gravimetric melt flow rate (MFR). Test loads are applied manually.

The MP1200 can be upgraded with optional features, including ISO 1133 tools and an encoder-based programmable piston displacement transducer (PPDT), for testing according to Procedures B & C (ASTM D1238) or for volume measurement tests (melt volume rate or MVR) and melt density calculations.
