S0994 - Tinius Olsen - BS7320 Specification for sharps containers

This Grip is used to test the bodies of Sharps Containers. As you might imagine, it is very important that 'sharps' cannot penetrate the sides of the container.

This grip is used to hold a fine needle in one end, and a sample of the moulded box the other. There is a piece of foil underneath the specimen, this allows the system to know when the needle has punctured right through. An accurate measurement of the force required is then taken.

The needle holder rotates allowing the user to insert the needle without bending over or risking hurting themselves with the needle.

The base is a simple stand with hole, the connection to the foil is made with a clip.
