TMS dual extrusion cell

TMS dual extrusion cellThis set of fixtures and accessories provides a complete solution for extrusion tests on semi-solids and viscous liquids.

The test set consists of three 50mm diameter sample presentation containers - allowing technologists to make tests on prepared samples in triplicate. The containers may be mounted to the supplied bottom plate that allows easy fitting within the TMS Standard fixture table.

Each container has a set of four base discs:

  • 1 x blank (no orifice) for back extrusion
  • 1 x 2mm central hole for forward extrusion
  • 1 x 6mm central hole for forward extrusion
  • 1 x 8mm central hole for forward extrusion

A set of five extrusion discs, 5 mm in thickness - fitted to the crosshead - complete the fixture:

  • The largest 49mm diameter disc is used in forward extrusion tests where the sample is forced through the selected hole in the base plate.
  • The remaining 45 mm, 40 mm, 35 mm and 30 mm diameter discs are to be used in back extrusion tests.
