The quality of packaging products plays a significant role in delivering your items safely to the customers. Thus, it is important for you to test all factors of your packaging material before shipping your products in it. One of the important factors to consider is the bursting strength of boxes. The bursting strength of the material is defined by the property of the material which will let you determine the sustainability of materials for different applications. This property of the material is very important because it will let you analyze the quality of materials used to pack and ship the products.

Testronix is a leading bursting strength testing instrument manufacturer that will let you test the bursting strength of boxes with their high-quality bursting strength tester. You can easily get an accurate measurement of the boxes bursting strength by testing them with the help of this burst strength testing machine. Here in this blog, we are going to discuss the purpose of this lab testing instrument and why you should use it for your packaging industry. So, let us get started.

What is a bursting strength test?

When the packaging material like corrugated box will be used for packaging, then they are equipped with some controlled rate of air pressure that will cause the package to burst with a certain pressure. Thus, it is important for you to test the bursting strength of the package beforehand so as to make sure that the package will not get burst out when external force will be applied to it. Thus, you can test the bursting strength of corrugated boxes so that you can easily determine the weight the package can withstand without getting burst. Testronix offers different models of bursting strength tester that will let you test the boxes with quality.

This package burst tester will let you check the toughness of the package against external pressures. It serves to be beneficial for the packaging industry in a number of ways. You can read about the benefits of a bursting strength tester and know how advantageous it is.

The main purpose of testing the bursting strength of packages

The main purpose of conducting the bursting test of packages is to assure the toughness of materials. This quality test requires a force that will rupture the material. This Bursting strength tester ASTM D3786 is easy to use and can be performed easily. By effectively testing the material against hydrostatic force, you will easily be able to deliver high-quality packaging products to your customers.

You can easily test paper/paperboard using this lab testing instrumentsWhen the specimen will be placed between two annular clamps under sufficient pressure then it will minimize the slippage of the specimen. The upper clamping surface will have a spiral groove and the lower clamping surface has concentric groves. A circular diaphragm of pure gum rubber is clamped between the lower clamping plate and a pressure cylinder so that before the diaphragm is stretched by pressure underneath it, the center of its upper surface is below the plane of the clamping surface. If you find any difficulty in conducting the test then you can consult with our technical experts. Give us a call at +91 9313 140 140 or email us at info@testronixinstruments.com. We will assist you well regarding the use of this testing instrument. You can even ask bursting strength tester price by giving us a call at the above number.
