Crush Resistance Tester

Product line: S18502

The crush tester has been specially developed for crush tests on various materials (paper, board, etc.) and is impressively simple to operate. Its robust construction and two frictionless spindles guarantee high measurement accuracy even under very heavy loads. The platens included are specially constructed to ensure the least possible deviation from the parallel. There are sample holders for different test procedures available as options. The unit is controlled via a touch screen where the individual testing methods can be selected and values and curves are displayed. To avoid wear to the touch screen the start and stop buttons are located separately. The crush tester is equipped with the FRANK-PTI standard connector.

Test description
The sample is placed, with or without sample holder depending on test procedure, between the plates. The appropriate test program is selected on the touch screen. The platens automatically travel to the correct start position. Pressing the start button causes the platens to compress the sample at a preset speed. On reaching the preset test criteria (depending on the test procedure, breaking of the sample or a preset distance) measuring stops and the platens automatically travel back to the start position. The test results are displayed both numerically and graphically on the touch screen. If more than one run of one of the two test series (MD/CD) is carried out they can be statistically compared and displayed as ratios.
