Tensile System with Heated Saline Bath

A Compact Tensile System with heated saline bath has been delivered to Biosense Webster, a Medical Equipment Manufacturer.

This is a 500 lbf. capacity Horizontal Machine with a 12 by 72 inch heated bath six inches deep for testing tubing and other components which are in contact with blood or other body fluids during their normal use. The Tensile Machine also has the ability to apply and measure Torsion loads while measuring and controlling Tensile loading.

The Load Frame is derived from the SSTM-500, but arranged horizontally to allow the full length of the test part to be submerged in the saline bath. The bath is maintained at human body temperature and circulated by a pump to minimize temperature variations. A novel feature of the system is a set of air operated jacks which lift the load frame to move the test specimen out of the saline bath for easy access.
