Box Compression Tester (BCT)

Presto’s Box Compression Tester is used to determine the compression strength or stacking potential of cartons, paper tanks, beehive crates, paper cases, etc. It is designed specially to calculate the compression strength of the box and the weight range chosen to completely crush with a predetermined load for a given time period to estimate stacking load with the help of motorized arrangement.

Box compression tester is a rugged instrument with user-friendly controls. Cardboard boxes should have an adequate compression potency so that they do not get crushed when placed one above the other during storage. The Compression strength – BCT of a box can be determined by placing a carton on a rigid metallic base plate and pushing it down from the top with the help of concurrent movable plate. The instrument is available with digital indicator and with a pre-fitted computer system to measure the strength digitally and in graphical format respectively.

    I am supplier of the corrugated boxes for the carbonated drinks. The box compression tester saves my business as the companies were complaining me for the sudden bursting of the boxes due to low quality of the boxes. Thanks to box compression tester for the thoughtful process.
