Melt Flow Index Apparatus

(As per Indian, ASTM and Other International standards)
The melt flow index system designed to test flow rate and melting temperature of Plastics.
The system consists of following:
� With PID controller
� Standard weights as per requirements
� Auto cut-off Knife on preset time
� Timer and stop watch for knife activation, flow rate


The Melt Flow Index is a measure of the ease of flow of the melt of a thermoplastic polymer.Melt flow rate is very commonly used for polyolefin, polyethylene, and polycarbonate and other from the polymer family which are engineering plastics be measured from 190�C to 375�C. The plastics converter should choose a material with a melt index so high that he can easily form the polymer in the molten state.
