Product line: S18520

The short span compression tester has been developed specially for the paper industry and has exceptional ease of use and high measurement accuracy. Its open design allows samples to be easily placed in the test jaws. To allow measurement of thick as well as thin materials, the gap between the clamp jaws can be set via the software between 0.3 and 0.7 mm. The device is operated via an integrated touch screen which is used to select test methods and displays values and curves. The separate start button located on the device can be used to prevent wear to the touch screen. The test device is equipped with the FRANK-PTI standard connections.

Test Description
The sample, prepared with the sample punch, is placed in the sample holder and the start button is pushed. The sample is pneumatically clamped and the test jaws move towards each other at the preset speed, whereby the sample is compressed. The resistance exhibited by the material is measured and displayed on the touch screen numerically and as a real-time curve. If more than one run, in MD and CD, is carried out, these can be compared statistically and the ratios displayed.
