Used to determine the fracture characteristics gest pipelines and pressure vessels, drop weight tear testing DWTT is a critical part of material qualification programs for oil and gas and industrial applications. It is intended to apply the CTOA test method to a broad range of steels, including thin less than 6 mm and thick larger than 20 mm pipe steels.

Steel pipelines are widely used to transport energy in the form of liquid petroleum and natural gas. The steel used in the manufacture of these pipelines must have high strength and toughness, and high resistance to fracture.

Over the last few decades, it has been recognized that the Drop-Weight Tear Test DWTT better represents the ductile fracture resistance than the Charpy Test, as it utilizes a specimen that has the full thickness of the pipe and has a fracture path long enough to reach steady-state fracture resistance.

The zones of ductile and brittle fracture during DWTT characterize the quality of pipeline steels. Drop Weight Tear Testing is a material characterization test aimed at avoiding brittle fracture and ensuring crack arrest in pipelines seamless or welded.

Applications Applications Qualitest Quali-DWTT series is mainly used for drop weight tear test DWTT of Ferrite Steels, to observe specimen fracture surface after impact within the temperature that fracture type is converted from non-ductility to ductility. This test method is that the hammer striker with weights is raised to a specific height then released. Free drop hammer impacts and tears the specimen. After the impact, proportions of ductile fracture shear and cleavage on the fracture surfaces are measured.

This testing machine complies with the relevant requirements of standards for DWTT such as metallic materials Drop-weight tear tests of ferrite steels. A specimen supported at both ends is impacted with a cold-press-fitted notch, with the point of impact opposite to the notch. In some cases, high impact energies of up to , Joule are necessary to break the specimen.

Very robust construction stands up to the rigors of high energy testing to provide high reliability with a minimum of downtime. The buffer is equipped to absorb the residual energy after breaking the specimen to protect the weight and anvil from destroying. Also install the safe outfit, such as safety net, safe pin for maintenance and hanger locking.

Easily interchangeable contact parts simplify maintenance and reduce the cost of ownership. State-of-the-art testing accommodates impact energies up to ,J and specimens up to 50mm thick also available on request.

Automated specimen loading provides compliance with cycle times required by test methods while maintaining operator safety. Very rigid base and anvils ensure very low flexure under high test loads. Guided mass system to ensure that the impact geometry is correct throughout the entire test.

Equipped with the specimen-carrying outfit, anti-falling of outfit for the specimen, centering outfit to guarantee quick, accurate and reliable tests. High quality, easy to use control software ensures consistency and enhances throughput. Ergonomically designed, no requirement for the operator to work at elevated heights or handle excessive physical loads. Optional liquid low-temperature chamber Optional automatic specimen feeding system Responsive lifetime technical support.

Semi-Automatic System Without Automatic Specimen Feeding System The operator opens the specimen door on the bath, takes the specimen from the cooling bath and places it on the alignment table.

The operator closes the specimen door. The rest of the sequence is automatic. The autoloader picks the specimen up, places it on the anvil, the clamp is applied and the autoloader returns to the default position. The drop weight is then released and the broken pieces of the specimen conveyed to the right side of drop tower. Automatic System With Automatic Specimen Feeding System The operator configures the drop height, cooling temperature and soak time on software.

The rest of the sequence is automatic: the specimen feeding system picks the specimen from cooling bath, places it on the anvil, and then returns to the default position. Advantages Cycle time completely within 10 seconds Safe to operators The system is designed for a minimum cycle time of 3 minutes.

Cycle times under 3 minutes with very low energy absorption might result in overheating of the shock absorbers, and consequently to damage. Technical Specification.
