Foam Testing Equipment measure firmness, strength, general properties, and stiffness. It is Fatigue life, resistance to impact, tensile adhesion, and tear resistance. This equipment determines the loss of indentation force deflection, loss of thickness & structural breakdown by visual assessment of polyurethane. We manufacture this product using supreme quality materials and the latest technology.
Thickness of polyurethane foam products below 100 mm in thickness are measured by using a soft material thickness gauge having an arrangement to measure thickness with an indenter of specified area exerting a specified pressure on the test specimen whose thickness is being measured.
The Foam Thickness Gauge for polyurethane foam consists of a dial indicator mounted over a metallic frame and a circular indenter of specified diameter and weight to apply a specified pressure on the test specimen.
The Globe Ball Resilience Tester for polyurethane foam consists of a flat horizontal platform, a vertical acrylic tube in which the sphere is dropped, and a hand operated arrangement to release the sphere from a pre-determined height.
The platform on which the test specimen is kept also forms the base of the equipment. It has four leveling screws to make it horizontal.
The acrylic tube is held over the base with the help of a holding block, which can be moved vertically to adjust the height of the tube to enable test specimens of different thicknesses to be tested. This adjustment is carried out with the help of a screw so that the height of the tube can be precisely set. The tube is held firmly after adjustment so that it does not rock during the test.
The effect of repeated application of pressure on the surface of a slab of polyurethane foam experienced in its normal life is evaluated by simulating these conditions in laboratory by applying and releasing a specified force for a specified number of times, after which the effect of such pounding on the physical characteristics such as hardness index, thickness, and cell structure are observed to evaluate the quality of foam slab.
The Globe Pounding Tester for polyurethane foamconsists of a flat metallic platform for keeping the test specimen on, a circular indentor of specified shape and size which can be repeatedly lifted off and pressed against the foam slab, a pneumatic-operated arrangement to give movement to the platform, and a counter to count the total number of poundings given to the test specimen.
