The BBR uses a linear, variable-displacement transducer (LVDT) with a range of 6.35mm and accuracy to ±2mm measures deflection. The temperature-compensating 500g load cell with mechanical overload protection ensures accurate load results. Safe, rapid cooling of the ethylene glycol mixture test fluid to -40° to 25°C is provided by a mechanical refrigeration system. Process temperature is controlled and monitored by two, independent, platinum RTD temperature transducers maintaining temperature stability.
The BBR comes with a pre-loaded software package, which allows for device configuration, daily verifications, test setup, test initiation, and reporting. It also includes five aluminum specimen molds with mylar strips, a Calibration Kit with required weights, and confidence beam. Calibrated test weights and a certified LVDT (NIST-traceable). The easy-to-use software allows daily verification and periodic calibration of load cell, LVDT, and RTD transducers
