G174 Series Burst Puncture Test Fixtures

GB5-200 Series Fracture Mechanics Clevis Grips are designed for static and dynamic testing of compact tension specimen in accordance with relevant ASTM standard practices. The fracture toughness tests such as KIc, JIc and CTOD can be conducted using these clevises in accordance with ASTM E399, E647 and E1820. To meet the test requirements for specimens of varying width and thickness, a series of clevis grips with varying sizes are available. Standard grips are rated from 0 °C to 100 °C (32°F to 212°F) for low temperature and elevated temperature applications. Models are available that will accommodate temperature ranges from -70 °C to 1000 °C (-94°F to 1832°F).

ASTM D6241 Hydraulic Clamping Test Fixture

The GD6241-175H Hydraulic Clamping Fixture is specifically made to test for the ASTM D6241 standards. This clamping fixture applies up to 100 kN clamping force (or 22,500 lbs).Using this clamping fixture, a test specimen is clamped between the circular plates and force is exerted against the center of the unsupported portion of the test specimen by a steel plunger attached to the load indicator until rupture occurs.

Note that this machine requires the customer to provide compressed air supply - 70 psi (5 bar).
