Suitability test of Shrinkin'Sleeves for
a) Continuous operating temperature.
b) Long duration testing at high temperature
a)Cut lengths of Shrinkin'Sleeves to be tested.
b)Sleeves under test, shrunk on appropriate mandrel.
Cut lengths of sleeves/sleeved mandrels progressively exposed to various temperatures, durations in the oven. The results observations are tabulated after removal of test samples from oven.
Test Specified :
Expose test samples to following parameters.
100oC x 1000 hrs. Long duration testing at higher temperature : 110oC x 24 hrs.
a) The shrinkage should be even from all sides.
b) The surface, smooth all over without pit marks / pin holes
c) The sleeving should not develop any crack.
d) The sleeving retains all its properties after cooling.
Sample Description :
- Shrinkin'Sleeves can be used at an elevated temperature of 100oC for 1000 hours.
- Shrinkin'Sleeves have got a capacity to bear a heat shock Upton 110oC for 24 hours.
