The IDECO VAC-Test & Density Index device is a system for simple determination of the pore potential of liquid aluminium alloys. In order to determine the actual pore potential, a sample is taken from the melt to be tested using a sampling ladle. After casting in two special sample crucibles, one sample solidifies at atmospheric pressure and one at 80 mbar absolute pressure.
Once the samples have cooled down, the density index is determined on the Density Index Analysis System according to Archimedes' principle. The density index represents the percentage density difference of the two samples created.
Double device for the simultaneous production of a pair of "density index" samples. Both vacuum systems are independent and can be used separately.
