SanitarywareTablewareTilesBS4034-1990BSEN13258-2003ISO 10545 - 11


Ceramic testing equipment for the determination of the crazing resistance of the glazed tiles to ISO 10545-11 and craze resistance of tableware.


Constructed from heavy duty stainless steel, this instrument is designed for the determination of the crazing resistance of glazed ceramic tiles and tableware. by exposing them to 10bar pressure
All units carry an independent safety inspection certificate
Functional Description:
Units are supplied with automated control through an electronic programmable controller. The instrument is pre-programmed to meet the needs of ISO10545-11 but the operator can also create their own pressure profiles
This instrument can perform both simple and complex cycles with multiple steps in the raising, holding and descending pressure phases.

Max pressure: 10,0 bar - 1000 KPa
Operating temperature: 180 °C.
Material: AISI 304 stainless steel
Basket with dividers for samples
Dry painted steel base and cabinet for switchboard.
Construction: electro-welded.
Cover: flat. Bottom: convex
Cover seal: through self-sealing silicone gasket.
Cover closed with high resistance screws with hand wheel, safety anti-opening feature which acts when the unit is under pressure
Cover opened with hinge
Heating: electrical power three-phase

Automatic test cycle with end-of-test beeper.
Control board with keyboard and LCD display for test cycle setting and checking. (5 optional languages can be selected)
Operator settings:
(Please note that the settings for ISO 10545-11 are already pre-programmed into the controller)
• Operating pressure
• Measure unit pressure: bar - KPa
• Pressure gradient from 0,1 to 10 bar/h
• Dwell (pressure and time)
• Dwell at atmospheric pressure

Electrical heating with minimum inertia
Cooling by water controlled by an automatic valve (requires a water source and drainage facility)
Additional Equipment included:
Ware rack made of stainless steel
Safety valve preset at 10 bar
Pressure Meter 0-16 bar for the internal pressure control
It is possible to also use this unit to perform vacuum tests according to ISO 10545-3 (water absorption),

We recommend that clients buy spare lid seals when you buy the autoclave as these are a consumable item. We also recommend that you consider a spare element and element fitting kit to avoid down time.
