Gibitre™ Constant Volume Specimen Die Cutter: Description
Constant Volume Specimen Die Cutter Gibitre™ Instruments
CCSi provides this high quality constant volume specimen die cutter for obtaining constant volume test specimens employed by the:
  1. Mooney Viscometer (ASTM D1646);
  2. Oscillating Disk Rheometer (ASTM D2084);
  3. Moving Die Rheometer (ASTM D5289).
Test specimens having a specific volume is especially critical in obtaining repeatable and reproducible test determinations as:
  1. undersized samples cause imperfect filling of the cavity formed by the die, and
  2. oversized samples negatively influence temperature recovery time and may prevent complete die closure.
The Gibitre™ constant volume specimen die cutter features a unique and exclusive adjustment system that allows the user to selectively obtain precisely controlled test specimens. Constant Volume Specimens
This advanced feature of the Gibitre™ constant volume specimen die cutter makes it a truly economical and flexible system for obtaining precision test specimens. It also produces the rotor shaft orifice in the lower die specimen for the Mooney Viscometer samples, saving considerable preparation time.
