Induction Peel Testing
The customer needed to repeatably measure the peel resistance of heat induced induction seals, commonly used within the dairy industry.
A system based on the UltraTest and a 100N Advanced Force Gauge was recommended to the customer. A pin vice, attached to the AFG, was used to grip the tab of the induction seal. The stand was set to initiate a peel test at 200mm/min, then continue to completely remove the foil seal from the PET bottle.
A PC using DataPlot software (connected to the UltraTest) provided a graphical display of the test and recorded this data for later analysis.
