Saline Tank

Another new innovative testing system has been released by our engineering design teams working with medical industry professional who want to perform tensile tests on a range of materials for producing Synthetic Skin. This new accessory is a vertically mounted, temperature controlled, fluid bath that becomes a saline tank.
This particular application used with a Tinius Olsen 5KT single column testing machine and a pair of medical grade 50N capacity vice grips that keeps the specimens in a saline solution while the tensile test is performed. The bath is filled from a reservoir tank and the system has multiple sensors to control the filling of bath and temperature of the Saline Solution.
What makes this test fixture unique is that it allows tensile tests to be performed on specimens that are underwater, with no change to the testing machine.
