How does the Bursting Factor calculating machine work?

Bursting Factor

The bursting factor of paper is crucial in determining its strength and suitability for various applications. By measuring the resistance of paper to pressure, the bursting factor provides valuable information on its ability to withstand external forces. With Presto burst factor testing machine, manufacturers can easily test the bursting strength of materials and get accurate burst factor calculations.

With the use of this lab testing instrument, one can easily ensure that the boxes will not burst in between shipping or transportation. This calculation aids manufacturers, in making informed decisions regarding which type of paper is most suitable for their specific needs. In this blog, we will discuss brief information about the Presto burst factor testing machine and how you can easily operate this testing instrument efficiently.

Introduction to the Bursting Factor calculating machine

Burst factor calculating machine, also known as Burst Genie 2.0 is one of the high-quality lab testing instruments that can accurately test the burst strength of materials and is widely used in the packaging industry. Burst Genie 2.0 is a reliable instrument designed for assessing the strength and performance of a wide range of materials, including Rexene, leather, paperboards, paper, uneven boards and boxes, industrial fabrics, solid fiberboards, filter cloth, plastic films, foils, sheets, and more.

The Presto Bursting Strength Tester complies with various test standards, including ASTM D 3786-01, ASTM D 3786-80A, and ISO 1060 PART-1 1987. The bursting strength is different from the bursting factor and can easily be calculated with the help of this lab testing instrument.

This BS tester machine is easy to operate and can store up to 9 test readings. The bursting strength of the test specimen is displayed in Kg/cm² on the digital screen. Users can subsequently calculate the bursting factor and burst index as needed.

Now, let us discuss the working of this quality lab testing equipment.

Steps to Operate Burst Factor Testing Machine

Whenever you conduct a bursting strength test on the materials, then you need to set up the test environment. If you want to operate Presto Burst Genie 2.0 then you can easily follow the steps mentioned below.

1. Start the machine and turn ON the main switch. The Load indicator might show some readings due to previous test values. 

2. Set the pressure to zero by pressing the TARE and RESET buttons. The load indicator will show zero readings. 

3. Prepare a Specimen of Cardboard, corrugated fiber sheet or any other material you want to test with the minimum dimensions of 100mm x 100mm. 

4. Place the testing specimen and rotate the operating wheel in the clockwise direction to bring the upper clamp down to hold the test specimen. 

5. Tighten the operating wheel to make sure that the test specimen is firmly held and there will be no slippage.

6. After proper placement of testing specimen, you can easily commence the test.

In this way, you can easily operate this testing machine and conduct a bursting strength test on the materials. If you want to buy a bursting tester, then you can easily consult with our technical team of experts.
