When using rubber products in industry applications, such as automotive and home hardware, the rubber must be high quality to remain flexible under any condition. To ensure the excellence of rubber, Qualitest’s Gehman Tester subjects rubber samples to different temperatures in order to determine the relative stiffness characteristics of vulcanized or thermoplastic rubbers.
Qualitest recently delivered a Gehman Tester to a leading North American manufacturer of industrial power transmission products. Using the Gehman procedure, which can subject samples to a temperature range of -80°C to +30°C, the Gehman Tester will allow this company conduct high-quality tests on their entire product line, including heavy-duty and lightweight conveyor belts, rubber track, rubber hoses, as well as automotive truck belts.
Built from durable stainless steel and aluminium, with a customizable option to include automatic cooling system, the Gehman Tester is one of the most efficient solutions on the market, with 6 test stations that conduct completely automated testing. Achieving results according to ISO 1432 and ASTM D1053 standards, Qualitest’s Gehman Tester will help this leading North American manufacturer to sustain the highest standards for product development and manufacturing.
