Freeze-Thaw Cycle Machine

The ScienTemp freeze thaw tester is a versatile freeze thaw cycle machine with a capacity of 20 standard test blocks. It can be used to test the resilience of concrete to freeze thaw cycles to ASTM C666 standards or a cycle at the discretion of the user. The operator interface control provides easy input of the cycle time and temperature. A programmable three-channel, 10 in diameter circular chart recorder is provided to monitor air temperature and two test specimens. The machine’s minimum cycle time is approximately two hours, while the maximum cycle time is user defined.
