The Shuttle(TM) labratory rotational molder The Shuttle(TM) labratory rotational molder

Pourability Funnels (funnel flow) and Bulk Density Cups. These Funnels are in compliance with ARM 2.1, ASTM D1895 Method A and ASTM 1895 Method B. The ARM and Method A kits are produced in aluminum. The Method B Funnel Kits are available in Aluminum, Hard Coat Aluminum and Stainless Steel. The ARM and Method A Funnels are Tested and Certified with our standard PE powder. The Method B Funnels and Bulk Density Cups are tested with our standard masterbatch pellets. This inexpensive test equipment is a must for all rotomolders. Improperly ground resin will not mold as expected. Flowability and Bulk Density Tests can be performed in less than five minutes.
