In Situ Mechanical Testing

Deben CT5000

The CT5000 5kN in situ tensile stage for µXCT applications is a modular tensile and compression testing system with a maximum extension of 10mm and a 5kN load cell with an accuracy of 1% (of full-scale range). The actuator speed ranges 0.1mm/min to 1.0mm/min. The stage is equipped with an environmental chamber and Peltier heated and cooled jaws with temperature range from -20°C to +160°C. Size: 117mm diameter, 285mm to the bottom of the tube, tube length to suit X-Ray source. Stage weight: ~6.5kg.
