Release Date 01.19.10Subscribe RSS

SDL Atlas is targeting its innovative, new tabletop PnuBurst unit to customers who want the convenience of a preprogrammed unit for basic burst testing but don’t need the extended range of the company’s popular AutoBurst model.

Both the PnuBurst and AutoBurst, the company’s premier burst tester, are built and certified to global safety and testing standards. Both deliver consistent and accurate testing for woven and non-woven textiles, paper, paperboard and films.

Introduced as a cost-saving option, the PnuBurst design features a pneumatically operated diaphragm, a color touch-screen controller preprogrammed for major test protocols and automatic bell size and clamp ring detection. The PnuBurst offers convenient out-of-the-box operation, enabling laboratories to conduct burst tests up to 1500kPa (15bar, 217psi.)

Its USB port, data cable and onboard software allow users to save and analyze test data as they see fit – or streamline their tasks by simply viewing and recording results brightly displayed on the PnuBurst’s colorful instrument control screen.

For users requiring an extended test range, the SDL Atlas AutoBurst offers labs a fully automatic but traditional hydraulic technique with up to 6000kPa (60bar, 870psi) operation – performance superior to that of competitive models.

The AutoBurst is ideal for testing paper, apparel fabrics, technical textiles and other materials where reliable burst strength measurements are critical.In addition to a full selection of test bells, the SDL Atlas units measure distensions up to 70mm – key for accurate testing of elastic fabrics.
