Drop Impact Tester

The drop impact testers are designed to carry out Batelle drop weight tests on metallic materials, e. g. pipelines.

Instrumented Drop Impact Tester FWi150

Application

  • Charpy impact tests on notched metal specimens according to DIN EN ISO 148, ASTM E23 and GOST 9454

Features

  • Variable drop weights
  • Drop height can be adjusted continuously
  • Automatic lifiting of the drop weight
  • Drop energy control according to the adjusted drop height and weights from 1.1 J to 161 J
  • Operation via clearly structured touchscreen interface
  • With instrumentation

Instrumented Accelerated Drop Impact Tester BFWi 1500

Application

The drop impact tester BFWi 1500 especially serves to carry out Charpy impact tests at standard metal specimens notched at one side according to DIN EN ISO 148, ASTM E23 and GOST 9454. However, other drop impact tests can be carried out as well.
