This testing machine is designed to perform mechanical property tests of long rod insulators, steel wires, cables, conductors, power fittings,chains, electrical devices, it's also available for mechanical property tensile tests on other specimen with long shape.

General Details

What is the tension test machine / horizontal tensile testing machine?

The horizontal tensile testing machine is applied to do mechanical tension/compression property tests of various types of steel wires, cables, conductors, chains, power fittings, electrical devices, insulators, and insulating materials, it’s also available for mechanical property tensile tests on other specimens with long shape.

The main testing machine has a horizontal structure, which makes sample assembling and disassembling easy. The tester consists of a main machine, servo loading system (servo motor and lead screw) and computer data processing system for analyzing test data, record and print. Application of computer technology makes test procedure simple and test data accurate, and it has functions of data processing, automatic curve drawing of testing force and testing time, storage and printing for the same.

As a high precision ratio control valve is adopted for a servo loading system to closely track and regulate the loading system, this tension testing machine can perform the continuous tests. Users could automatically make tests with preset loading requirements by only plating samples on the equipment.

What function does the horizontal tensile testing machine have?

The tester has functions for force testing, loading speed automatic tracking and measurement of loading speed and peak value protection. During the test, it has functions of overloading protection and displacement protection, test data can be automatically stored and test reports can be printed.

This tensile testing machine can be used for mechanical property tests and analysis of insulators for manufacturers and testing or research institutions.

What types of insulators can be tested with this horizontal tensile testing machine?

This tension test machine is available for all types of insulators that needs tension test. For example, polymeric insulators tension and suspension type, ceramic disc insulators, toughen glass disc insulators.

  1. Can this test machine used for mechanical breaking load test of porcelain insulator? We need such test for 11kv disc insulators.

    • Yes, this insulator test machine is available for all mechanical tension sample tests on ceramic disc insulators, and available for routine tests too, which is 50% force value of SML.

  2. Very useful test equipment for tension insulators,we use it for mechanical routine test of 33kV composite insulators,thanks

    • Thanks for purchasing our machine, we also have other test machines of OHTL insulators for other mechanical tests and electrical tests.
