For longitudinal (heat) reversion testing of plastic pipe samples by means of heated liquid (glycerine). SCITEQ’s glycerine test cabinet is designed specifically to allow safe and easy heat reversion testing of plastic pipe samples.

The cabinet has an easy-to-open access and inspection window, allowing unhindered access to the sample area. A sample drainage area with water to clean the sample is provided. The sample tank itself is protected by a linear activated insulated lid, the bath is constantly agitated and temperature is maintained automatically. There is a fume exhaust which needs to be routed either to a central evacuation system or to an outside area according to local regulations in force. The control includes auto timing and lifting of test specimens on completion. The samples are lifted from the tank using the same linear system that opens the lid. The SCITEQ glycerine test cabine complies with the standards EN 743, ISO 2505, ISO 2506, ISO 3478 and ISO 9852. 

Safety features

The cabinet has several safety features ensuring a safe work environment. In addition to the build-in exhaust fan the safety cover enables ensures that fumes are kept inside and removed by the exhaust fan, while enabling a safe view of the table top and the tank.
