This machine is used to test the bursting strength of the Filter Paper / Element
- Test Paper (Filter Element) is put on a Holding Station and clamped from the top.
- From the bottom of the Holding Station, a Diaphragm is pressurized which presses against the Test Paper / Filter Element.
- The Diaphragm is pressurized by Glycerin filled in a container which is pushed by a moving Piston actuated mechanically.
- The load at which the paper fails(bursts) against the expanding Diaphragm is noted through Double Needle Manual Dial gauge.
