Amsler Pendulum Dynamometer PM103

In summary, the conversation is about a request for help with an old Amsler Pendulum Dynamometer type PM 103 tensile testing machine that is experiencing problems with loading rate and a bouncing pendulum. The manual suggests the valves may be blocked and references two lost drawings for maintenance procedures. The person asks for help in obtaining the drawings or contact information for other labs with similar machines. A person named David Phillips offers to help and thanks Alfred Bai for providing a response and drawings from www.walterbai.com.

Please help
We have an old Amsler Pendulum Dynamometer type PM 103 tensile testing machine which has been working admirably for many years - recently we started having problems with slight variations in loading rate and a tendency for the pendulum to bounce when loading is applied/removed abruptly. Reference to the manual suggests one or more of the valves may be blocked and needs to be stripped/cleaned. Unfortunately our manual is not complete and makes reference to two drawings, which have been lost (prior to our purchase of the machine), showing the location of the valves in question. The description of the maintenance procedure only refers to the valves and valve components by drawing numbers and as such is extremely difficult to follow without the drawings.

Can anyone help with supply of hydraulic drawings for the machine (or contact details for other labs operating similar machines) – our manual lists the drawings as 103.009 and 103.010 – general web search has proved fruitless.

1. What is an Amsler Pendulum Dynamometer PM103?

The Amsler Pendulum Dynamometer PM103 is a scientific instrument used to measure the force and torque of a rotating object. It consists of a pendulum arm with a mass at one end and a force sensor at the other end.

2. How does the Amsler Pendulum Dynamometer PM103 work?

The pendulum arm is set in motion by a rotating object, and the force sensor measures the force and torque exerted on the arm. The data is then displayed on a digital readout or can be recorded for further analysis.

3. What are the applications of the Amsler Pendulum Dynamometer PM103?

The Amsler Pendulum Dynamometer PM103 is commonly used in research and development, quality control, and industrial settings to measure the force and torque of rotating objects such as motors, turbines, and engines. It can also be used for educational purposes in physics and engineering courses.

4. How accurate is the Amsler Pendulum Dynamometer PM103?

The accuracy of the Amsler Pendulum Dynamometer PM103 depends on various factors such as the quality of the instrument, calibration, and proper usage. However, it typically has a high accuracy and precision compared to other force measurement devices.

5. Is the Amsler Pendulum Dynamometer PM103 easy to use?

Yes, the Amsler Pendulum Dynamometer PM103 is designed to be user-friendly and easy to operate. It typically comes with a user manual or instructions for proper usage. However, it is recommended to have some basic knowledge of force and torque measurement principles before using the instrument.
