Zero- and short-span tensile tester

Brand: Pulmac TS-100 Troubleshooter

Capabilities: Able to measure the fiber strength in a sheet of paper 2.54 cm x 10.16 cm. Span width 0 - 6 mm. Measurements can be made wet or dry.

Practical use: The Troubleshooter is used to measure the tensile strength of the fibers used to make up a sheet of paper. We can monitor changes to that strength as paper is exposed to oxidative or hydrolytic degradation environments.
