This benchtop unit enables experiments to beperformed on steady-state heat conduction in non-metallic materials such aspolystyrene, PMMA, cork or plaster in accordance. Specimen sheets are placedbetween a heater plate and a water-cooled plate. A clamping device ensures thatthe clamping pressure and thermal contact are reproducible. A special sensormeasures the heat transfer rate. Electronic controllers keep the temperaturesof the heater plate and cooling plate constant within close limits. Themeasured values can be displayed and evaluated on a PC.
A supply of cooling water is required.
