Peel Tester

January 17, 2007

Testing Machines is releasing the New Peel Tester, 80-91 series, which is expected to be even more successful than the original 80-90 series. Some important features of this tester include a direct drive system (no chain);  easier calibration set-up with no pulleys to worry about; the inclusion of a Windows operating system and touch screen flat panel display in a compact network-ready unit; and one-piece construction with all the cables built in so that the user need only plug in the load cell and test.

The Peel Tester system allows for the instrument to be a node on a network or a lab management system. The standard load range for this system is 0 to 15.4 lbs. (7000 grams). Test speeds are infinitely variable from 2 to 1500 inches per minute. The Peel Tester accommodates samples up to 2 inches (5 cm) wide with a maximum peeling length of 12 inches (30 cm).
