The Testing Machines Inc Tissue Ball Burst Tester is a precision testing instrument which automatically determines burst strength according to TAPPI T 570/ISO12625-9/ISO 12625-11.
The Testing Machines Inc Tissue Ball Burst Tester is a precision testing instrument which automatically determines burst strength. All testing parameters such as test speed, peak burst strength are selectable in an easy to use, intuitive software program supplied with the instrument. The tissue burst tester includes Win test software which provides PC-based control of tissue paper testing methods developed specifically for TAPPI T-570, ISO12625-9 and ISO 12625-11. The system incorporates high resolution, low capacity load cells with accuracies better than +/-0.5% down to 1/1000th of the load cell capacity for accuracy and simplicity of operation. The system also includes all necessary test fixtures designed according to the TAPPI and ISO tissue standards. The Tissue Burst fixture is configured on a UTM-Universal Material Testing frame. In addition to Tissue Burst, other force measurements such as tensile or compression strength can be performed with the proper testing grips and fixtures. For paper, tissue paper and plastic film testing, mechanical or air-operated tensile grips and the finch wet strength device options are available.
