Z010 Zwick / Roell
The Z010 is a two column load frame from “Zwick/ Roell”. For proper power transmission at high temperatures, bars of alumina are installed. The device can be used for stress- and / or temperature dependent compression deformation, but for ferroelastic measurements, as well. Due to sintering effects of the compression bars the temperature limit is 1150 °C. The maximum force the equipped load cell can measure is 10 kN.
The load frame „2850-30KN Instron“ provides uniaxial, force- or strain controlled deformation experiments. With the software compression, tensile and cyclic tests are feasible. The maximum applicable force of the load cell is limited to 30 kN. The sample contacting rods are constructed of silicon carbide, which is mechanically stable up to 1400 °C. These temperatures can be achieved with a surrounding “HTM Reetz / 2408 Eurotherm” oven. In the lower part of the system an LVDT system is equipped, to measure strain in micrometer range.
