Used to determine the physical and mechanical properties of raw materials and components, Lloyd Instruments manufactures and supplies universal testing machines (UTM) and tensile testers worldwide. The wide range of material testing machines can test for tensile strength, compression, flexure, friction, tear, peel, adhesion, shear, ductility, insertion, shear strength and many other parameters. Lloyd Instruments texture analyzers have an international reputation for their high performance and cost effectiveness. Specially engineered food texture probes provide the platform to perform rapid, general food testing and detailed texture analysis on a diverse range of foods.


DavenportTM Polymer Testing Products

Melt Flow Index (MFI): The Davenport Melt Flow Indexer is used to determine the melt flow properties of a polymer by extruding it in a molten state, through a calibrated die using a reference weight. It is used extensively in production and quality control to ensure batch-to-batch consistency and is renowned for accuracy, repeatability, and reproducibility of results.

PETPlus Instrument for the Intrinsic Viscosity (IV) Measurement of PET Polymers: The Davenport PETPlus is a unique test instrument designed for fast and safe solvent-free intrinsic viscosity (IV) measurement of moisture-sensitive polyethylene terephthalate (PET).

Density Gradient Columns: Davenport density measuring columns are designed to measure the density of solid materials, notably plastics, according to BS2782 Part 6 Method 620D, ASTM D150568-, ISO 1183 and others. It is also a quick comparative test, ideal for discerning density differences between similar materials.
