Featured Products

  • Malvern Panalytical Kinexus DSR

    The Kinexus DSR rheometer is a dynamic shear rheometer designed for routine analysis and QC testing in the Asphalt industry, with true ‘plug and play’ functionality for all measuring systems and environmental control units. The Kinexus DSR enables pioneering Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) based testing with a built-in library of standard test protocols for Asphalt and access to standard rheological test modes.

  • Rudolph AutoFlex R837

    Rudolph AutoFlex R837 is a flexible automated laboratory sample handling system for labs. It offers total flexibility for high throughput labs measuring Density, Specific Gravity, Refractive Index, Color, and pH. Some of its key features include SMART TECHNOLOGY™ which automatically adjusts pump speed ranging from thin to high viscosity samples up to 36,000 mPa-s (cP), self-cleaning needle which eliminates sample cross contamination and flexible rack configurations for your application.

  • Grabner MiniFlash FLP/H Touch

    MINIFLASH TOUCH is a uniquely designed flash point tester for the determination of flashpoints of liquids and solids, using the Grabner flash point detection method of measuring the instantaneous pressure increase inside the continuously closed chamber, triggered by an energy-controlled electric arc. Heating the test chamber from the top avoids condensation of high volatile compounds, significantly improving the test results.

  • LECO AC600 Semi-Automatic Isoperibol Calorimeter

    Ideal for the measurement of calorific content in solid and liquid fuels, LECO’s AC600 semi-automatic isoperibol calorimeter sets the standard for future calorimetry instruments. Its semi-automated operation, combined with the use of thermodynamic TruSpeed®, obtains a rapid analysis of calorific content and increased instrument throughput without sacrificing accuracy or instrument precision. A new, ergonomically-designed, lightweight combustion vessel assures ease of operation while greatly reducing operator strain.

  • LAUDA PRO Series

    LAUDA PRO is the cutting-edge product line with an outstanding overall concept: Brand new from LAUDA are the circulation thermostats for external use, with small, active liquid volumes for quick temperature changes. The innovative Base or Command Touch operating units can be detached and used as a remote control. The low temperature thermostats come equipped with hybrid cooling as standard, which allows for additional cooling of the refrigerating machine with water.
