Tinius Olsen has a simple and neat solution which supports safe Compression or Flex Bend testing to destruction and efficient test specimen throughput. Implemented on the model 5ST compression testing machine the accessory comprises of a metal base with a suitable height polycarbonate tube in which the physical test takes place and ensures all glass fragments are contained.
Post-test the tube is simply lifted away allowing the operator to vacuum up the glass fragments. The containment tube can also be supplied with a lid through which the upper tooling, be it a compression platen or upper point of contact for a flex test, passes. It’s simple, quick and safe.
