  • The UTB-1430 Force Ductility Testing Machine is used to determine the deformation energy required to stretch a bitumen sample from 200 mm elongation to 400 mm elongation.
  • Force ductility machine is capable of testing 3 specimens simultaneously.
  • The speed of the machine can be adjusted from 5 mm/ min. to 100 mm/ min.
  • Internal tank is made of stainless steel.
  • The bath is fitted with an immersion heater in order to obtain the 25°C test temperature required for normal ductility testing.
  • Water bath is covered by insulating material to reduce the heat loss during testing.
  • The machine can be supplied with an external Cooler / Circulator Unit necessary to obtain the 5°C test temperature required for force ductility testing according to EN 13589.
  • UTB-1430 Force Ductility Testing Machine has 3 load cells.
  • The accuracy of load cells is ±0,1N with a maximum capacity of 300 N.
  • Test speed can be adjusted and load-displacement curves can be drawn through the software.
  • Software for UTB-1430 is capable of calculating deformation energy according to EN 13589 and displaying force vs displacement graphs for each sample separately or on the same screen.
  • Cooler/Circulator Unit (UTGE-4110), moulds and mould base plates should be ordered separately.

Main Features:

  • Elongation measurement through motor encoder.
  • 3 simultaneous load measurements with 18-bit resolution.
  • Ethernet port for connection to PC (not included).
  • Colour large TFT graphic display with touch screen
  • PID controlled heating and cooling system.
  • Fine adjustment of test starting position for easy insertion and removal of different types of test moulds.
  • Closed-loop PID temperature control of 25±0.5°C
  • Temperature range from 4°C to ambient temperature (±0.5°C) with the Cooler / Circulator Unit (UTGE-4110).


  • Selection of test parameters can be made either by TFT graphic display or computer software.
  • Automatic calculation of deformation energy.
  • Display of load vs deformation graphs.
  • Ability to export test data to Microsoft Excel in *.xls file format
  • Software assistance for elastic recovery test according to EN 13398 to minimise operator error.
