Edge crush tester helps in measuring the edgewise compressive strength of corrugated boxes. This value of compressive strength is measured by the help of an Edge Crush Tester.
The Edge crush Tester functions on the principle of compressing a small segment of board on its edge. The crushing is performed between two rigid plates perpendicular to the direction of the flutes. The pressure is applied until a peak load is established.
The peak load is measured in the unit of pounds per lineal inch of load bearing edge (lb/in). However, for ease and better understanding the final peak load is usually reported as an ECT value. Hence The Edge Crush Tester can be used to accurately measure the ECT Value.
