Differential Pressure Transducers utilize solid state sensor.

January 22, 2015

Based on micromachined silicon sensor, PX509HL Series provides stable reading with accuracy of 0.08% and broad compensated range of -20 to 85°C. Wet/wet differential pressure transducers operate in demanding industrial areas with ruggedized containment pressure up to 10,000 psi. Compensated overload range minimizes errors induced by large line pressures. Constructed of welded stainless steel, modular transducers offer user accessible potentiometers for zero and span.

Falling Ball Impact Tester is used for thin film testing.

January 2, 2015

With respective ranges of 50–2,000 g and 300–2,000 g and 0.1 g accuracy, i-Freefall 5100 determines impact resistance of such materials as plastic films, paper, and foils via free falling dart or ball method according to ASTM F1709 (method A and method B). Operation requires user to prepare test specimen according to specific standards, adjust instrument height, and attract falling ball. Accommodating specimens >150 x 150 mm, tester features pneumatic clamping.
