Placeholder Picture

The MK3 machine is the next generation of Latex Testing.

The new design features new digital controls and readouts for improved accuracy and reliability of results.

The new inverter driven controls reduce any variability in motor speeds, maintaining a continuous speed of 14,000 rpm as displayed on the new digital readout. The controls also feature an easy to use digital timer.

The sealed motor and controls require no maintenance and servicing

The glass (synthetic) or perspex (natural) beaker is secured on a stable aluminium table which is fully height adjustable using the easy hand operated controls. The machine retains the highly robust black stove enameled cast iron base mounted on rubber pads and is fully protected for use in tropical climates

Operating Instructions

The beaker platform is raised and lowered by means of the large hand wheel. The small hand wheel opposite is the platform lock. The platform should be at maximum height and locked in position during a test.
