principle of measuring bursting strength

The bursting strength of materials is a critical parameter that needs to be measured in various industries. One such industry where this attribute holds utmost importance is the packaging and shipping sector. When it comes to transporting goods, ensuring their safety throughout the journey becomes imperative, especially when dealing with fragile or delicate items. Therefore, assessing the bursting strength of corrugated boxes used for packaging purposes becomes essential as it directly relates to the ability of these materials to withstand external forces and pressures during transportation.

Thus, we at Presto Testing Instruments made it easier for paper & packaging manufacturers to conduct burst strength tests on the materials with the help of Presto bursting strength tester.

With our continuous improvement in designing highly advanced lab testing instruments, we at Presto have designed burst genie 3.0This highly advanced newly launched lab testing equipment will be able to test the strength of your material under certain multi-directional forces.

In this blog, we will discuss brief information about bursting strength tester and how this quality testing equipment is useful in testing the bursting strength of materials effectively.

What is the bursting strength test?

The bursting strength test is one of the crucial quality tests that will be conducted on the material to test its ability against bursting when bursting forces will be applied to it. This test determines the maximum amount of pressure or force that a material can withstand before rupturing or bursting open. By subjecting samples to increasing amounts of hydraulic pressure, this assessment helps manufacturers gauge the durability and reliability of their products under extreme conditions.

You can easily check the quality of packaging boxes against bursting with the help of Presto Burst Genie 3.0.

Below we have listed the tips to get accurate testing results with the Presto bursting strength tester:

Tips to get accurate testing results with Presto bursting strength tester

By testing the strength of the corrugated boxes, manufacturers can make sure the boxes are strong enough to protect their products from damage and meet the expectations of their customers.

But there are certain factors that may affect the accuracy of the testing results. Below we have mentioned them:

  • Whenever you conduct the test, you should always place the sample properly. This will provide highly accurate lab testing results.

  • It is important for manufacturers to test the glycerin leakage to avoid inaccuracy of testing results.

  • Make sure there should not be any obstructions present in the testing area while conducting a bursting strength test on the materials.

These are some useful tips you should follow to get highly accurate lab testing results while conducting bursting strength tests.

Now, let us discuss the features and technical specifications of Presto Burst Genie 3.0.

Working principle of Presto bursting strength tester

The Presto bursting strength tester operates on a revolutionary working principle that ensures accurate and reliable results. It features an advanced hydraulic system for precise measurement. When conducting a test, the sample material is clamped firmly between two circular plates within the instrument. As the pressure gradually increases through hydraulic force, the material ruptures or bursts open.

By measuring the maximum amount of pressure required to burst the specimen, Presto's bursting strength tester determines its robustness and durability under applied bursting force.
