Relaxation rig, EB 02, in 4 different versions

The EB 02 relaxation rigs are available in different options for continuous stress relaxation measurements in both compression and tension according to ISO 3384 and ASTM D6147.

The ISO standards recommend 3 samples of each material per temperature, but 2 are ok.

The rig works together with the cell ovens EB 21, EB 22, EB 23, the programmable temperature cell ovens EB 17 and EB 23LTP, or with our temperature boxes for test at room temperature and below.

Note! Make sure to choose a correct load cell for the testing. Recommendation is to use the load cell between 10 % to 100 % of specified max load. Below 10 % the accuracy may be lower than the specified ±1 % in ISO 3384 and ISO 6914.

Different types of relaxation rigs

  • EB 02 – Compression testing at temperatures up to 200 °C (ISO 3384)
  • EB 02HT – Compression testing at high temperatures up to 300 °C (ISO 3384)
  • EB 02HF – Compression testing with high forces up to 45 kN (45 000 N) at temperatures up to 200 °C (ISO 3384)
  • EB 02TE – Tension testing at temperatures up to 200 °C (ISO 6914)
  • EB 02TEHT – Tension testing at high temperature up to 300 °C (ISO 6914)
  • EB 02AP – Acid proof material for testing in liquids and compression at temperatures up to 150 °C, including air tight liquid container and compression plate (ISO 3384)
  • EB 02SA – Super acid proof material for testing in liquids and compression at temperatures up to 200 °C, including liquid container and compression plate (ISO 3384)
  • EB 02ALE – Compression testing with possibility to exchange liquid and air at temperatures up to 200 °C. Read more about the ALE-test system here.
