Table Top Load Frames are compact and affordable testing systems with both static and dynamic loading capabilities. They can be utilized for a variety of tests, including tension, compression, bend, and fatigue studies. Low friction hydrostatic bearings allow for accuracy at low speeds.
Table Top Load Frame Features:
Designed for use with the JEOL JSM-6490LV scanning electron microscope, where it permits live SEM observation/recording of visible changes in tested materials through failure. Also can be used with the optical microscope or as a data-logging test module, with no image display.
Thermal Gravim Analysis (TGA) is commonly used to determine selected characteristics of materials that exhibit either mass loss or gain due to decomposition, oxidation, or loss of volatiles (such as moisture). Common applications of TGA are (1) materials characterization through analysis of characteristic decomposition patterns, (2) studies of degradation mechanisms and reaction kinetics, (3) determination of organic content in a sample, and (4) determination of inorganic (e.g.
