Stone Ridge NY, USA & Ipswich, UK — SP Scientific has introduced the CharpyCool, a low temperature bath that provides metallurgists and testing laboratories a wider range of precise temperature control for impact specimens cooling, with one of the smallest footprints on the market.

The new CharpyCool is a mechanically refrigerated bench top bath that eliminates the need for costly consumables such as liquid nitrogen or dry ice. Compact and completely self-contained, the?? CharpyCool offers up to 8 liters of working fluid volume enabling up to 91 Charpy impact test specimens to be accommodated at temperatures between -80 ??C and +30 ??C.

A powerful variable speed magnetic stirrer and vortex breaker provide excellent temperature uniformity and stability enabling superior results. PID control enables the CharpyCool to sustain precise temperature control to within ?? 0.1 ??C.

The?? CharpyCool includes a digital temperature display, and an optional Charpy Rack is available which allows multiple-specimen loading and easy access to monitor your testing.

The?? CharpyCool exceeds the strict temperature stability requirements of the American Society for Testing & Materials (ASTM) Method E23 for charpy impact testing, a standardized high strain-rate test, most often used on metals, polymers, ceramics and composites used to determine the amount of energy absorbed by a material during fracture.

The absorbed energy is a measure of a given material’s toughness and acts as a tool to study temperature-dependent ductile-brittle transition.
