Description

The Rycolab Crush Tester can be used for measuring the compressive crush strength of paperboard and corrugated board.

This device is delivered with a built-in touch screen and controlled by an industrial computer. All parts are built into a sturdy frame. Measuring range up to 5000N with an accuracy of ±1% of the displayed value. Automatic test cycle with break detection and after break automatic return to starting position. Easy to select test on the display.

The corrugated or paperboard sample to be tested is placed in the crush platens. By pushing the start button on the touch screen (or the separate start-button) the lower plate is moved with the selected speed (normally 12.5 mm/min) up to the higher platen. The sample between the platens is crushed, the necessary force for this crush test is registered and the curve is displayed on the screen. After break detection, the plate goes back to the start position and the next crush test sample can be placed.

With accessories, you can run crush tests for corrugated materials including the Edge Crush Test (ECT), Concora Crush Test (CCT), Ring Crush Test (RCT), and the Pin Adhesion Test (PAT).
