The Rycolab Burst Tester is used for measuring the burst strength of paper, paperboard and corrugated materials.  Evaluating the bursting strength of materials for quality control as well as research and development.

The Rycolab Burst Tester is used for measuring the burst strength of paper, paperboard and corrugated materials according to the Mullen type burst test method.

This bursting machine has a built-in touchscreen and a sturdy aluminum frame. The device is equipped with 1 measuring head for bottom measurement of the bursting strength with a measuring range up to 5000 kPa and an accuracy of +/-1% of the displayed value. Clamping force for the sample holder is adjustable between 1000N and 7500N. Maximum sample height is 12 mm. Results can display burst value as BEA (Burst Energy Absorption). The tester can also run an automatic test cycle with break detection returning to start position.

The sample to be tested is placed in the measuring area. By pushing the start button on the touch screen first the acrylic glass protection cover lowers and then the clamping bell lowers and holds the sample. Glycerin under the membrane is compressed and the membrane is pressed against the sample. The burst test begins and when the sample breaks, the hydraulic cylinder stops and returns to the start position. The protection cover and the clamp are opened automatically. The maximum pressure is shown on the display as the breaking force.

Ideal for testing paper, paperboard and corrugated materials.
