Elmendorf Tearing Tester
(With Screw Driver, L- Key & Template)
Range: 1600gm


a.    Augmenting weight for 3200 gm capacity
b.    Augmenting weight for 6400 gm capacity

The Tearing Strength of fabrics, Paper, Plastic Film, or other similar materials in sheet form is determined by measurement of work done in tearing through a fixed length of the test specimen using the Elmendorf tear tester.
The Elmendorf Tear Tester consists of a brass sector pendulum pivoted on anti friction ball bearings over a vertical bracket fixed on a rigid metallic base. The test specimen, in shape of a rectangular, is held between two clamps, one of which is mounted on a pendulum and the other is mounted on the vertical bracket. The clamps are mounted in such a manner that their holding faces are aligned with each other when pendulum is released by lifting a release lever the action cause the pendulum to fall down under its weight & to tear the test specimen while doing so. The energy absorbed during tearing is indicated on a scale fitted on pendulum by a low friction pointer pivoted on the axis of the pendulum.
An adjustable knife is also mounted on the pendulum upper bracket is centered between the two clamps & is used for making the initial slit in the test specimen.

A check weight is supplied with the tester for verification of the scale.

The instruments is finished is metallic painting and bright chrome plating to give it a corrosion resistant finish.
