Short Span Compression Tester (SCT)

The short span compression tester has been developed specially for the paper industry and has exceptional ease of use and high measurement accuracy. Its open design allows samples to be easily placed in the test jaws. To allow measurement of thick as well as thin materials, the gap between the clamp jaws can be set via the software between 0.3 and 0.7 mm. The device is operated via an integrated touch screen which is used to select test methods and displays values and curves.

The separate start button located on the device can be used to prevent wear to the touch screen. The test device is equipped with the FRANK-PTI standard connections.
