The quick thermal sock test installation QTS 2 concieved and achieved by INCAS complete the Euroopean network infrastructure in fulfilling a niche in the materials evaluation.


The mains characteristics of QTS2 installation

  • Variable speed heating depending on the structure and chemical composition of specimen materials and constructive solution of the test installation
  • Maximum cooling rate 70 ° C / s
  • Precise positioning of the specimen in heating and cooling zone
  • Specimen dimensions : 1.5÷2.5 x 30 x 50 mm
  • Measurement temperature of specimen with quick response time radiation pyrometers
  • Vertical cylindrical furnace with Super Kanthal type resistances
  • Lab View data acquisition system
  • Ensure the reproduction of extreme functional conditions of industrial parts
