CEAST View Test with Aladdin SmartKey Eutron Dongle



the software brings together CEAST and Instron’s experience of impact, HDT Vicat, and rheology testing, providing a complete interface between the instruments and the end user. Developed for accurate material characterization analysis, data processing, organization, and reporting, it is configured into common application areas with a full set of features for customization.


CEAST VisualIMPACT Software works alongside the Data Acquisition System to manage CEAST Pendulum Impact Testers. CEAST VisualRHEO Software was developed for single-bore and twin-bore Capillary Rheometers to add ease to the data collection and analysis. VisualMELT Software is designed to control all the functions of the Modular Melt Flow Systems, from single-weight to multiple-weight tests.

VisualMELT manages the complete test procedure:

  • Parameter set editing and storage (test parameters can be chosen from a built-in library of international standards or customized according to your testing needs)
  • Real-time graphs that support test execution
  • Data acquisition and storage
  • Automatic calculations of test results required by international standards
  • Report management
  • Data export

These operations can be carried out on more than one instrument simultaneously.

Available test results:

  • Melt flow rate (MFR)
  • Melt volume rate (MVR)
  • Numerical data and graph of single steps and the whole test
  • Test time
  • Statistical data
  • Velocity and variance
  • Thermal stability
  • Shear sensitivity, rate, stress, and viscosity

The software enables the user to manage all optional equipment, including the load cell, the automatic cutting device, and the motorized weight lifter. When working with a multi-weight tester, it is possible to set up and control single-weight or multi-weight tests, as well as define the order and number of weights to be applied.

Optional software modules are available to satisfy the need for different test types or for advanced analysis of results such as in depth curve fitting, viscosity dependence on temperature, wall slip, elongational viscosity, stress relaxation, shear sensitivity, melt fracture, and thermal degradation.
