84-58 Horizontal Tensile Tester

    Tensile testing is the most widely used method for indicating the serviceability of many papers. Tensile Energy Absorption (T.E.A.) indicates the durability of papers which are subjected to repetitive straining and stressing. The Horizontal Tensile Tester offers menu driven pre-selection of parameters and infra-red sample detection for quick, effortless testing.

    The tensile measurement aids in assessing the suitability of a product for its end use and close relationship between tensile strain and fiber bonding serve to make this a very important test. Büchel B.V. has developed the Horizontal Tensile tester to perform these relevant tests in a professional way. The instrument has a build in large black & white liquid crystal display that is used in a conversational mode, allowing input of specimen identity and all relevant test parameters. The test results are displayed and transmitted via the RS232-C serial output. The transmitted data may be used in a data acquisition system. Statistical data is calculated and displayed after the operator ends a test series.
