Grease Asphalt Tar & Bitumen Testing
Drop point of Grease Apparatus (Gas Heated)
IP : 31/57, BS 894-1956
For determining the drop point of greases i.e. the temperature at which the grease under goes transition from the solid or semi-solid state to liquid state.
It consists of a brass cup 7.5 mm internal dia at wider end, a metal case and cylindrical metal sleeve, a glass boiling tube, beaker, stirrer and 7 mm dia steel ball.
Drop Point of Lubricating Grease Apparatus (Electrically Heated)
IS : 1448 (P:52) ASTM D 566, IP 132/64
For determining drop point of lubricating grease.
It consists of a chromium plated brass cup 9.9 mm internal diameter at wider end, 40 ml beaker, metal rod, electric heater and stirrer.Suitable for operation on 220 V, 50 Hz single phase supply.
IS : 1203, 1448 (P:60), 310, IP 49, 50 ASTM D-5, 217, D-637
For determining the consistency of grease, petroleum. Bitumen, tar, wax, food stuffs, rubber, cement, asphalt
and pharmaceutical creams, etc.
It has a base with levelling screws on which a vertical pillar is mounted. A head together with dial, plunger rod & cone (or needle) slides on the pillar and can be clamped at any desired height.
A rack, pinion and pointer assembly provides fine adjustment to the needle and the slipping clutch mechanism
enables accurate measurements of penetration. The dial is graduated in 40 x 0.1 mm divisions. Easy reading
is made possible by using a red needle against black graduated figures. Supplied complete with one 50 gms
Fand 100 gms weight without cone or needle.
Universal Penetrometer with Automatic Time Controller
Same as HF60.35 but has an automatic timer controller.The automatic timer supplies 220 V, D.C. output for exactly 5 seconds to a timing head (built in electromagnet).The timer head allows the plunger rod to fall freely for 5 seconds and clamps it automatically after 5 seconds.
Suitable for operation on 220 V, 50 Hz, single phase supply.
Bitumen Penetration Kit
Bitumen Penetration Kit for determining the consistency of semi-solid bituminous materials.
It consists of a standard penetration needle mounted in a brass shank, a transfer dish 90 mm dia x 70 mm
deep approx and two aluminium sample containers 55 mm dia x 35 mm deep and 55 mm dia x 57 mm deep.
Transistorised Penetrometer Controller or Timer
This unit supplies 220V, D.C. output exactly for 5 seconds to a timing head (Built in Electromagnet). The
timer head allows the plunger rod to fall freely for 5 seconds and clamps it automatically after 5 seconds.
Suitable for operation on 220V, 50 Hz, single phase supply.
Grease Worker (Hand Operated)
IS : 1448 (P:60) IP:50, astm d-217
It is used for working the grease. It can also be used as a container when measuring the penetration of
It consists of a worker pot in brass casting, a workertop and a perforated plate fixed to a rod which moves
freely in the worker top. All the above are fixed to a rod which moves freely through the top plate.
Cutter for Block Grease ASTM D-217
For trimming the grease block for penetration tests.
It consists of a base on which two pillars are mounted vertically. A cutting blade fixed to two guides slides
freely on the two pillars. An ‘L’ bracket is fixed on one side of the base at right angles to the blade and it acts as a guiding edge for the block. A handle is welded in between the blade guides. A maximum block of 150
mm x 100 mm cross section can be accomodated in ths cutter.
