ISL's RB36 5G modern and easy to use Ring & Ball instrument automatically determines softening points of many different products. Designed for measuring temperatures from 0°C to 220°C the RB36 5G simplifies testing and increases productivity by enhanced repeatability and reproducibility, with a state of the art regulation system and special design for methods with difficult heating rate regulations.

The RB36 5G enables simultaneous testing of two samples with independent monitoring and results display. Simply load the sample and with a few keystrokes, the test is started. Bath temperature and ball movement are precisely controlled according to standard test methods. Heating rate is monitored and displayed on an easy to read display screen and is automatically stored along with the result.
