Principle of Operation

top
A low torque synchronous motor rotates a specially shaped stirrer in the catalyzed resin or elastomer. As gelation occurs, drag exceeds torque and the motor stalls. Gel time can then be read on the LCD display.

 

Operation

top
Place the material sample in the unit (in paper throw-away cup), insert wire stirrer, set display to zero, and switch on. When gel occurs, read the time and discard the cup and stirrer. The motor can remain stalled overnight without harm.
