Model Number: SSI 506 CBIS
Standard Number: IS 10810 Pt 20
Cracks and deformation occur when the material is bend or wound under cold conditions. The apparatus is deigned to wound the cable samples on standardized mandrels under cold conditions.
The instrument is designed to test the flexibility or bending quality of cable under low temperatures. The cable is wrapped on the mandrel and is subjected to very low temperatures. The cable should not develop cracks or cuts after the cable is unwrapped form the mandrel.
The test is applicable for specimen of diameter up to and including 12.5 mm, above which the test is considered impracticable.
The instrument conforms to IS 10810 Pt 21
The Instruments consist of
Metal Frame for mandrel attachment
The sample is cooled in the cold chamber for specified time and then wound on the mandrel. The sample is then checked for any cracks or scales visible to the unaided eye.
