About This Project

 Tanks for determining resistance to frost, DFR series

Suitable for performing the test envisaged by the

UNI EN ISO 10545-12 (ceramic tiles) and UNI EN 1348 (adhesives for tiles) standards.

DFR/60 model

General features:

Stainless steel tank and climatic cell. Large clearances within the cabinet and easy access to the tank and climatic cell, guarantee comfortable maintenance.

- Climatic tank capacity: test sample up to the size

60 x 60 cm complying with the norm UNI EN

ISO 10545-12 (or n.6 concrete blocks of 40×40

cm size according to UNI EN 1348)

- Double overlapping tray for large and small sizes

- Complete submersion in water of the test samples

- Control panel with touch screen

- Video-graphic recorder with display and data

storing on compact Flash (data processing


included) for recording the temperatures of

the tank, reservoir and room

- nr.1 pre-set program that cannot be changed for

the test complying with the norm UNI EN

ISO 10545-12

- Storage of 9 customized programs

-Settable parameters from the operator:

• Nr frost/defrost cycles

• Sample temperature (up to -20,0°C)

• Cooling hysteresis

• Cooling gradient

• Keeping under zero

• Stay time in water immersion

• Water heating temperature (up to +40,0°C)

• Water heating hysteresis

-2 languages can be selected (Italian and English)

-Temperature measurement units expressed

in °C with 0.1°C-resolution

-Displaying of the test status and of the

temperatures in real time

-Reservoir water level indicator

-Lighted and acoustic signalling tower

-External RS 232 C serial output of the video-

graphic recorder (communication software excluded)

-Power supply:400 V three-phase 50 Hz+N+PE 32A

-Overall dimensions: 161x155x161 cm.
