How to Install a Tear Resistance Tester With 5 Simple Steps

The tearing strength of a material is one of the most considerable properties that help to determine the quality of the material. To test the tear resistance of the material, we have come up with a tearing strength tester that has been made in accordance with industry standards. We are one of the leading manufacturers and suppliers of the best testing instruments that will help you to deliver fail-proof products to your customers. This laboratory testing instrument from Presto will be very helpful in testing the tearing strength of various materials like fabrics, plastic films, or other similar materials. Let us dig deep into the information about this testing instrument and how you can install a tear resistance tester with 5 simple steps.

What is a tearing resistance tester and for what purpose it is used?

The tear resistance tester is one of the widely used testing instruments that have been made in accordance with industry standards. This testing instrument will help you to perform accurate measurement of the force done in tearing through a fixed length of the test specimen using the Elmendorf Tear Tester. Those who do not have any idea about the tear resistance property of materials then do not worry. The tear resistance is considered to be the resistance of the tear of a material when exposed to high tearing force.

With the help of this testing equipment, you can easily test the tearing strength of materials like fabrics, plastic films, and other related products. You can also read more about the tear resistance of fabrics or other similar materials, to get clear about this property of the specimen.

Now, let us focus on the features and specifications of this economical testing instrument.

Features of tear resistance tester

  • It has been provided with cutting templates, a cutting knife, and a sample cutting board that will help you to prepare the specimen for the test.
  • You can easily test various tearing parameters of the sample that includes tearing resistance, peak load, as well as median load.
  • You can easily conduct the test without any errors.
  • This is an efficient testing instrument that helps to conduct the test with ease
  • Its strong gripping fixtures can accurately hold your sample without any slippage.
  • It has inbuilt calibration weights assigned
  • This is a falling pendulum-type testing instrument.

These are some of the features you will get with the use of this highly advanced testing equipment. It has been made in adherence to industry standards like ASTM D1424-09(2013), ASTM D624 – 00(2012), ASTM D1776, ASTM D689.

Technical specifications of tear resistance tester by Presto

This testing instrument will easily help you to measure the tearing resistance of various materials with its all-inclusive features mentioned above. The testing sample of low quality will easily tear down with sharp objects. But, the fabric of high quality will need some extra force to get torn down. Thus with the help of Presto tear resistance tester, you can easily conduct a tear strength test and evaluate your product quality. Here we have listed the technical specifications of this amazing laboratory testing equipment.

  • Capacity: 1600 grams, 3200 grams, 6400 grams
  • Slit Size: 20 mm
  • Scale Reading: 0 to 100% of range
  • Least Count of Scale: 1%
  • Calibration Check Weight: At 1600 grams, At 3200 grams, At 6400 grams
  • Clamp Surfaces of Each Clamp: L-35.5mm x M -15.5mm
  • Distance between both Clamps: 2.5 ± 0.25mm
  • Tearing Distance: 43±0.15mm
  • Standards: ASTM D1424-09(2013), ASTM D624 – 00(2012), ASTM D1776, ASTM D689

These noteworthy technical specifications of tear resistance tester will be able to help you to buy the right testing equipment for your product. Now, let us discuss the 5 easy to follow steps to install a tearing resistance tester.

How to install a tear resistance tester in 5 simple steps?

If you have purchased the tear resistance tester from Presto Testing Instruments then you must follow these 5 simple steps to accurately install it. Thus, you can read the steps mentioned below.

  • Unpack the tearing strength tester and ensure that you have a different set of components present in it. These components include the main unit, bush for augmented weights, Allen bolt, Allen Key 5 mm, specimen cutting template, weight to check calibration, and calibration weight.
  • Place the specimen on the flat surface.
  • Check the level of the machine after attaching all necessary components to it.
  • Check the friction of pendulum bearings. For this, you need to set the sector pendulum with respect to the hole for zero setting (approx. 25 mm) to left and right sides from the edge of the Release Brake Pin.
  • The pointer should come to the ‘zero’ mark of the calibration scale fixed on the sector pendulum. Check the friction of pointer assembly as well. Once all the above steps are done, you can commence the test by placing the specimen accurately

These are 5 simple steps through which you can easily install this laboratory testing instrument accurately. You can also read about how to test the tearing strength of fabrics.
