  1. General Details

    ♦ SLY-S1 Elmendorf Tear Tester is controlled by computer with automatic and electronic measurement which is convenient for the operation

    ♦Pneumatic specimen clamping and automatic release of pendulum could avoid the system error effectively

    ♦Computer assisted horizontal adjustment system could maintain the instrument optimum status

    ♦Equipped with pendulums of multiple capacities

    ♦Professional software supports multi-unit data output

    ♦Equipped with RS232 port which is convenient to the data transmission and external connection

  2. Principle & Standards


    Lift the pendulum up to a certain height to give it an initial potential energy. The pendulum tears the specimen while swinging down. Computer calculates the decreased energy caused by tearing to obtain the required force for tearing.
