New instrument for testing water impact penetration
This Type II Design Impact Penetration Tester is comprised of a sturdy frame, made of high-grade stainless steel, which allows for precise and repeatable test results. It also features a number of attributes designed to ensure accurate testing including a small blade inside the funnel to allow water to move smoothly through the funnel without any swirling motion, strong clamps to hold the sample firmly in place, a weighted bottom clamp to hold the sample flat and an integrated drip catcher to catch any leftover water from the previous test. An air-bubble on the base shows when the instrument is properly leveled. SDL also supplies the specialized 6” x 9” (approx. 15 x 23 cm) blotting paper which the test requires.
