Drop Weight Impact Tester is intended to determine the resistance to external blows of thermoplastic pipes, sheets, fittings, glass, ceramics and other non-metallic materials under specified conditions by means of a falling weight.
The impact resistance of thermoplastic pipe and fittings is an important indicator used to evaluate the suitability for service and quality of processing. The resistance of the material to breakage during handling and installation is also can be reflected via this drop weight test, which helps in establishing impact test requirements in product standards.
The drop weight impact testing machine is applicable to PVC water pipes, PP pipes, PE pipes, drainage pipes, low-pressure feed pipes, core-layer foam pipes, double-wall corrugated pipes, various thermoplastic fittings, etc. Preconditioned specimens with low temperatures are accepted.
