Carbon Black Content Apparatus
CBC - 165
Presto’s carbon black content apparatus is widely used for concluding the carbon black content in polypropylene and polyethylene materials. The test is applicable only to specimens where carbon is present in a free state. As per the standards, the carbon black content in the samples is calculated by measuring the difference in the mass of the sample after and before the procedure takes place in the apparatus. The laboratory instrument is designed as per IS 4984, ASTM D-1603 and IS 2530 standards to determine the content of plastics.
It is the most important and a protective material in plastic materials and more effective in polyethylene for performing a particular test. The method consists of analyzing the test specimen in a static atmosphere and considering the gravimetric difference. The glasswares of the instruments are made up of best quality alloys to keep away premature fusions. The temperature of the machine is controlled by built-in electronic controllers to avoid practically overshoots and better temperature stability.
Presto’s Carbon Black Content Apparatus comprises of the tubular furnace made up using mild steel material.
The apparatus is incorporated with a nitrogen flow meter and a complete set of glass parts. Apart from this, there are two flasks to clutch solid ice. The machine is supplied with the main combustion boat and tubes fabricated using Quart glass. The properties of quartz glass help to bear higher temperature as compared to that of hard borosil glass.
