VT612DV - Table-top Device / Lab Device
For the production of "density index" samples

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.

  • Quick and easy determination of the melt quality by the caster
  • The sample crucibles are reusable.
  • Fan cooling of the sample crucibles to room temperature guarantees consistent testing success
  • Infinitely variable working vacuum for precise vacuum setting.
  • The vacuum technology is calibrated by IDECO as standard with a certificate and seal.
  • Portable table-top device. Ideal for laboratory use
