Tensile Testers

Medical Packaging Peel Testers

The seal strength of sterile packs is investigated using either burst testing or a 'seal peel' test. The requirements are described in ASTM F88/F88M Standard Test Method for Seal Strength of Flexible Barrier Materials and ISO 11607 Packaging for terminally sterilized medical devices - Part 1: Requirements for materials, sterile barrier systems and packaging systems.

MET sell leading expert Mark-10's peel testing equipment, all CE marked, and offering a very wide choice of:

Force Test Equipment to Gauge Seal Strength

Force Gauges

Mark-10 digital force gauges can be used in a virtually limitless number of tension and compression testing applications. They are able to capture the peak force and have selectable units of measurement. Available from 50g full scale to 500Kg, it is the broadest range in the industry.
