12 Reasons To Choose James Heal's ElmaTear For Tear Testing

20 May 2016

We're proud of the innovation and quality of instruments, but you don't have to take our word for it. Here are 12 reasons why you should choose the James Heal ElmaTear electronic elmendorf tester to meet your tear testing needs.

1.  WEIGHTS

Two additional weights, suitable for testing lighter specimens such as paper, film, nonwovens and plastic, have been added to the standard ElmaTear weights range. Laboratories can increase the range of testing they do and attract new business as a result of this.

2.  PRE-LOADED STANDARDS

ElmaTear includes an extensive list of pre-loaded standards organised by material type for easy selection. There is also the option to create standards, and amend the parameters of existing ones.

3.  DETAILED ON-SCREEN REPORTING

The comprehensive reporting function means that the length and width results from the same specimen can be seen at the same time.

4.  COLOUR TOUCH SCREEN

The introduction of this clear and uncluttered display makes the ElmaTear fast and responsive. It is easy to navigate, contributing to an intuitive experience for first time users.

5.  COMPREHENSIVE SAFETY FEATURES

A two hand release mechanism ensures the user is clear of the pendulum swing, and the blade is covered by a safety guard for extra protection.

6.  TESTWISE FOR ELMATEAR

TestWise packages results which can be transferred to a PC. It allows results to be easily analysed, presenting them in a table and as a bar graph. They can then be saved, printed or saved to PDF.

7.  VERIFICATION IN ONE SWING

The ElmaTear performs pendulum self-verification in one swing, a significant reduction in time on the previous model and other similar products in the market.

8.  INTELLIGENT TESTING

User error is kept to a minimum as the intelligent ElmaTear provides guidance and warnings throughout the testing process.

9.  INVESTMENT IN BLADE TECHNOLOGY

An investment in blade technology has increased the efficiency of the ElmaTear blade. It provides more accurate cutting, increased wear resistance and a longer life span.

10.  OPTION TO RE-TEST

The user can review and reject individual results and add in additional speciments, solving the problem of outlying results in an efficient manner.

11.  PROTECTIVE MAT

A protective mat around the base of the instrument protects it from laboratory wear and tear. This keeps the instrument in good condition, increasing it’s lifespan

12.  CHECK WEIGHTS

ElmaTear is supplied with a set of check weights, one for each corresponding pendulum. They enable the operator to confirm that the unit is functioning correctly.
