A melt flow index tester (MFI) is a key indicator for producers, processors and converters of plastic materials as it dictates the temperatures and pressures required to manufacture consistent quality products.

The Hanatek Melt Flow Index Tester (MFI) is one of the most advanced instruments available for the measurement of the melt characteristics of thermoplastic polymers.
Actual barrel temperature can be measured to ensure that every test is performed with complete compliance to ASTM D1238 (2011) Part A, B or C and ISO 11133-1 (2011) with full test documentation.

Test Types

  • Melt Flow Index/MFR
  • Melt Volume Rate
  • Melt Density
  • Shear Stress/Rate
  • Melt Viscosity
  • Spread values

Melt Flow Index Tester (MFI) Features

  • Tri-Zone Barrel Control for ultra-precise control of temperature across the whole barrel length
  • Temperature monitoring probe to ensure every test is made within the specification of international standards
  • Automatic calculation of test results
  • User interchangeable barrel core to reduce service costs
  • Optional UKAS / ISO 17025 calibration kit provides user serviceability whilst maintaining certification
  • Automatic cleaning cycle minimises operator contact with hot materials
  • Automatic weight lift for easy manipulation of heavy test weights
  • Manual cut off with audible cut prompt minimises the errors and downtime associated with automatic instrument machine faults
  • Optional UKAS certified calibration kit
