Various laboratory testing instruments are used for evaluation and quality control of paper, packaging, corrugated board, boxes and textiles. The most important among them is the Bursting strength Tester.
Bursting Strength Tester Machine has many benefits and uses in all these industries i.e. paper & packaging industry, textiles and more. Bursting Strength Testing Machine is thus, used as a multi-directional tensile tester, which is equipped to identify failure, called bursting strength. This Bursting Factor is measured in the direction of least resistance for evaluating physical strength and fiber bond strength of the sample under analysis.
Besides being employed in the paper and packaging industry for calculation of the ‘bursting factor’ of paper, the Bursting Strength Tester is also used for corrugated sheets, boards and other high-quality packaging films.
It works on the principle of measuring the bursting strength of packaging material by subjecting the sample to a gradually increasing, uniform hydraulic pressure.
Benefits of Bursting Strength Tester
The quality of packaging of products, especially items such as grocery, consumer goods and industrial products, is of great importance in the global market. It is important for products to be packed and sealed in a safe packaging material.
The packaging should have high tolerance and it is necessary for manufacturers to ensure that the package is able to withstand the pressures it faces during shipment and delivery.
Thus, paper or corrugated sheets used for packaging must be strong and durable enough to withstand changes in temperature& pressure. They should also resist stress of transportation and be able to reach the customer without any damage.
Bursting Strength Tester is widely used to calculate the bursting factor and quality of the corrugated sheets used for packaging.
This laboratory testing instrument is dominantly utilized in the packaging industries for calculating the strength and quality of distinct form of packaging materials such as papers, corrugated sheets, fiber boards, cardboard etc.
Manufacturers can easily ensure high quality of packaging they are delivering to the customers, by using the Bursting Strength Tester, which is available in various models – such as pneumatic, analogue, digital and computerized models.

How to measure bursting strength of paper & corrugated sheets?
A hydraulic load, under a rubber diaphragm of a specific area of the sample under test, is applied to the sample under test. It accurately determines the bursting factor, which indicates the strength of the sample – which could be paper/ corrugated cardboard/ carton box/ card board/ leather/ cloth or synthetic leather.
Procedure for Testing Bursting Strength
The procedure involves:
ØThe specimen for test is prepared, by placing the sample between two circular clamps.
ØThe specimen is then, tightened with the help of geared handle, and fitted in the machine.
ØThe pressure (hydraulic) is then applied to the sample and is gradually increased until the specimen ruptures.
ØThe pressure at which the sample collapses is recorded as the final reading on the digital display, and is noted as the ‘bursting strength’ of the given test specimen.
