Dead Weight Tear Test, Manufacturer, Exporter, Supplier, IndiaIntroduction :"MCS" developed it's first Drop Weight Tear Tester (DWTT) in the year 1999 for the maximum energy level of 30,000 Joules. Over the time, MCS commitment to excellence resulted in development of fully automatic PLC controlled DWTT with Hydraulic Shock Absorbers for drop weight tear testing of "Specimen" according to the standards ASTM-E436, API-RP5L3, ASTM-E208 and
drop weight tear Test. Drop weight tear tests (DWTT) are widely used in the gas pipeline industry to determine material characteristics such as brittle fracture resistance arrest in the seamless or welded. MES offers DWTT up to 3,600 ft-lbs of energy. The American Petroleum Institute (API) 5L test standard is used to determine the fracture ductility of metal line pipe.
Drop Weight Tear Tester - DWTT TorontechDrop Weight Tear Tester - DWTT. Back to Impact Tester - Impact Testing Machine. The advanced and popular Drop Weight Tear Impact Testing Machines - DWTT-API-30/40/50K series can test 10 samples consecutively, utilizing a user-friendly and automatic feeding and control system. By initiating the test process by the operator, the samples are automatically inserted via a manipulator from the low-temperature chamber to the impact area, and then the test

The drop weight test is a mechanical test, in which a defined weight falls onto a specimen from a specified height. Following the drop weight test the appearance of the fracture surfaces is evaluated. Here the proportions of the deformation fracture surface and brittle fracture surface are determined visually. The evaluation can also be based on the effective absorbed energy of the specimen.

Transition of ductile and brittle fracture during DWTT by Line pipe specifications specify minimum requirements for the shear area in a Drop Weight Tear Test (DWTT) to ensure the arrest of a long running brittle fracture. The DWTT, as specified in API RP 5L3  or ASTM E436 , was developed by Battelle Memorial Institute in 1962 during the
The Drop Weight Tear Test (DWTT), specified in API RP 5LR or ASTM E436, was developed in the early 1960s at the Battelle Memorial Institute, USA, to overcome some limitations of the 'Pellini' Drop- Weight Test. Drop Weight Tear Testing is a material characterization test aimed at avoiding brittle fracture and ensuring crack arrest in pipelines (seamless or welded).
