Measuring range up to 5000 kPa with an accuracy of +/-1% of the displayed value. Clamping force for the sample holder is adjustable between 1000 N and 7500 N. Maximum sample height is 12 mm.

Display of burst value as also BEA (Burst Energy Absorption). Automatic test cycle with break detection and after break automatic return to starting position.

Test description
The sample to be tested is placed in the measuring area. By pushing the start button on the touch screen first the acrylic glass protection cover and then the clamping bell lowers and fixes the sample.

Glycerin under the membrane is compressed and the membrane is pressed against the sample. When the sample breaks, the hydraulic cylinder stops and returns to the starting position. The protection cover and the clamping are opened automatically. The maximum pressure is shown on the display as breaking force. The next sample can be tested.

Flow rate of glycerin acc. ISO 275895 +/- 5ml Lower clamp diameter is 33.1mm
Pneumatic clamping force adjustable between 1000N and 7500N Safety covers lowers before the clamping bell can lower
