Melt Flow Index Tester (KFY-1160X)
The New KFY-1160X MFI series melt flow indexers are designed to meet or exceed the ASTM D1238 specifications as well as international standards. They provide an accurate, cost- effective means of monitoring material flow characteristics for lot-to-lot consistency. The new KFY-1160X LMI replaces the KFY-1160 series and incorporates key features:
- Touch-Screen Display… Replacing the 2-line vacuum fluorescent display,
the larger, backlit touch-screen allows for easier programming and
viewing of testing status and results.
- Digital Encoder… An optional digital encoder provides an accurate
measurement of piston displacement during Method B tests. By detecting
the speed of encoder movement, the LMI can automatically determine flag
- USB connectivity. With 3 USB ports (1 master, 2 slaves) users can connect
to devices for networking, printing, weigh scale measurements and data
- LAVA suite Software… The MFI is capable of delivering a wider range of data
in digital form. This includes not only melt index values, but also shear stress,
shear rate, viscosity and apparent melt density, as well as testing conditions.
Optional software makes it possible to record these values and present them
in various reports.
Meets international standards:
ASTM D1238 & D3364, ISO 1133, BS2782, DIN 53735,
KFY-1160X MELT FLOW INDEXER (ASTM D1238 METHOD A)
Includes (1) tungsten carbide orifice, touch screen programmer, operation to 500 degrees C, choice of (1) stainless
steel weight: 225, 1100, 2060, 3700, or 4900 grams, GO/NOGO gauge, cleaning and operating tools.
Note: The KFY-1160X LMI is capable of performing Method A testing only. It cannot be upgraded for Methods A/B or
KFY-1161X DIGITAL ENCODER
The Digital encoder provides a high precision measurement of piston displacement and is a required option to
enable the performance of ASTM D1238 Method A/B and B tests. It can only be factory-fitted to new model
Optional extra weights in addition to the one supplied as above :
KFY-1162 225 gm, stainless steel piston weight
KFY-1163 1100 gm, stainless steel piston weight
KFY-1164 2060 gm, stainless steel piston weight
KFY-1165 3700 gm, stainless steel piston weight
KFY-1166 4900 gm, stainless steel piston weight
KFY-1167 LAVA SUITE SOFTWARE… With the optional software the MFI is capable of delivering a wider range of
data in digital form. This includes not only melt index values, but also shear stress, shear rate, viscosity and
apparent melt density, as well as testing conditions and reports.
KFY-1168 Basic Cleaning Tool Kit (recommended) – cleaning tools and accessories for LMI that includes – brushes,
bubble level, cleaning drill bit, go-no/go gauge, palette knife, funnel, cleaning patches and inspection mirror.
