Press Release: Easy Density Determination for Consistent Plastics Quality with a Free METTLER TOLEDO Application Note
Density determination is critical to ensure the quality of plastics. Users can carry out this measurement by adding a Density Kit to their MS-TS, ML-T, or ME-T balance.
METTLER TOLEDO presents a new Application Note to help users determine the density of solid plastic economically and easily.
Greifensee, Switzerland—October 1, 2018 - Monitoring the quality of products and the manufacturing process requires testing molded plastic parts. That's why in the modern world we still rely on Archimedes' principle dating back to 200 BC. This rule states that a body immersed in fluid indicates an apparent loss in weight equal to the weight of the fluid it displaces and applies nowadays to a gravimetric determination of density necessary in QC.
The determination used to involve dedicated lab equipment which took up bench space and required cleaning and maintenance. Now, as it is presented in a free application-note download entitled “Easy Density Determination for Consistent Plastics Quality,” an existing MS-TS, ML-T or ME-T balance can be converted into an accurate density-determination device in just a few minutes by adding a Density Kit. A built-in balance application guides users, executes the measurement, and calculates the final density.
In addition to determining the density of liquid, porous and viscous substances, Density Kits enable the density of other solids to be determined. Trends can be examined quickly thanks to onboard statistics reporting, and results can be tailored for various reporting options such as print, save-to-USB, or transfer-to-PC. Benefits include timely optimization of research, QC, and production processes, as well as straightforward analysis.
