X-Y RECORDER MATERIAL PROPERTIES TESTING
Digital oscillographic recorder proves useful in strength tests for materials such as steel, concrete and composites.
Creep, compression strength, and tensile strength are all types of material strength tests. X-Y recording can display and record 2 physical variables such as displacement and load as measured by a tension compression testing machine.
The RA2300MKII and RM1102 Digital Oscillographic Recorders include an”X-Y recorder mode” allowing for repeated overwriting, high resolution recording to paper output and general data acquisition.
In addition, the RA2300MKII direct connects to strain gauges, pressure sensors, and displacement sensors.

High Temperature Creep Test
Creep is a problem that affects materials used in power plants and chemical plants operated at high temperatures over long durations by gradually advancing plastic deformation and microstructural change, carbide coarsening and holes and ruptures. Test pieces held at a high constant temperature are subject to a tensile force that starts below the yield point to measure strain and break point and to evaluate overall material properties. Creep tests and creep rupture tests were performed at high temperatures to find the creep characteristics of heat-resistant steel weld metal for oil reaction tower (550 °C), creep characteristics of 11% Cr steel for a steam turbine (650 °C) and creep resistance performance testing of Ni-base superalloy steel weld metal (750 °C).
