Bursting strength tester is designed to find the bursting strength of paper, paper board, fabric, leather, etc. A test specimen is held between two annular clamps under adequate pressure to minimize slippage. The device is fitted with a pneumatic cylinder that applies pressure to push the clamp downwards and place a vertical load on the sample. The clamping section is designed to avoid slippage and hold the sample material.
The base test areas have a circular design to maintain a definite amount of friction between the sample and the base at the time of testing. The display screen of bursting strength tester is chip-based and has feather touch control buttons and accurate gauge to monitor the pressure applied.
Universal Engineering Corporation is a renowned manufacturer of a wide range of lab testing instruments related to paper, paper board, pulp, packaging, and allied industries. The company has a presence in more than 40 countries and offers customized products at reasonable prices. Bursting strength tester manufactured by Universal Engineering Corporation is microprocessor-based and designed with pneumatic clamping of the specimen with a single touch. It is widely used in several paper manufacturing and packaging units to determine the bursting strength of paper and paperboard.
Bursting strength tester manufactured by Universal Engineering Corporation is equipped with a touch screen graphical display and control panel which provides test results for bursting strength, burst factor bursting index and Bursting Energy Absorption (BEA) and other parameters like minimum, maximum and average values along with standard deviation. The conducted test data can be printed by the inbuilt printer and the test results can be directly transferred to the computer through the RS 232 communication port to make a test profile.
What has fueled the demand for Bursting Strength Tester?
The demand for packaged products has increased manifold due to changing lifestyles resulting in exponential growth of the packaging industry. The packaging norms are becoming quite stricter which has fueled the demand for bursting strength tester for good quality packaging by estimating the burst resistance of paper, paper board materials and corrugated boxes. The instrument is used to test samples included manual operations like a rotational wheel and manual clamping. The new advanced burst strength tester-pneumatic model has an auto burst feature for precise testing.
A digital indicator fitted on bursting strength tester measures the force required for complete rupture or bursting of the board and provides a hydraulic load under a rubber diaphragm of a specific area of the testing sample. Bursting Strength Tester is intended for measuring the strength of paper / strong paper board by submitting it to an increasing uniform hydraulic pressure. This instrument is reliable and designed to produce the result with high accuracy. Bursting Strength Tester is ideal for testing a wide range of materials to determine their strength, performance, and quality. Scientifically calibrated for reliability and easy to operate, bursting strength tester has proven to be a reliable instrument for packaging industries.
