30 Years' Experience Making Creep Test Machines
Phoenix engineers have over 30 years of experience in the design, manufacture and support of Creep and Stress Rupture Test Machines for customers around the world.
Our Phoenix Creep Testing Machines are designed to accept furnaces and vacuum chambers so that the same frame can be used for either high sensitivity creep and stress rupture tests on single specimens, or hydrogen embrittlement tests on strings of multiple specimens.
The machines are fitted with either tubular or split three zone furnaces, which can be specified to have operating temperatures of up to 1200°C.
Specimen adaptors can be manufactured to suit the customer’s samples.
- Deadweight or electromechanical options
- Designed to accept furnaces and vacuum chambers
- Compact design
- Option for Potential Drop (PD) crack growth measurement
- Capacities up to 100kN
- Option to save data onto a central Phoenix data acquisition system
Strain measurement is an option; the unique Phoenix averaging extensometer is suitable for use on ridged type specimens, for operation up to 1200C.
The extensometer is supplied complete with transducer conditioning with digital readout of A, B, or A+B/2 to three decimal places. The conditioning unit has output signals available for external monitoring (e.g. data acquisition option).
Data acquisition systems can be supplied either as individual systems for each machine, or as a central data acquisition system for multiple creep machines.
