How much force do you need; 100,000, 40,000, or 5000 Pounds?

  • The Model TT100 is our newest and largest tensile tester. It is intended for testing specimens that will require from 7000 to 100,000 pounds of tensile load to cause fracture. In general, specimens cut from arc-welded test plates are in this range. This model can grip specimens with end dimensions up to 1-1/2 by 2 inches. The reduced section dimensions are a function of the code being followed and the material being tested.
    • Test plain carbon steel specimens at full thickness up to a maximum of 1.5 inches, as well as others as follows:
    • In ASME Section IX, for example, a reduced section of 3/4 x 1-1/2 inches will allow testing of any material having a maximum tensile strength of 88,800 psi.
    • Materials having higher tensile strengths can be tested by sawing rectangular specimens lengthwise or by using multiple standard round tensile specimens that have smaller areas.
  • The Model TT40 (formerly the Model TT1) is intended for testing specimens that will require from 4000 to 40,000 pounds of tensile load to cause fracture. In general, specimens cut from arc-welded test plates are in this range. For specimens that will have loads exceeding 40,000 pounds, such as ones from thick plate, the codes and standards allow several alternatives:
    • Consider our larger and more powerful Model TT100, above.
    • Cut large rectangular specimens lengthwise to create multiple specimens with smaller cross-sectional areas.
    • Use standard round tensile specimens that have smaller areas than full-section rectangular specimens. The load required for round tensile bars is well within the limits of the Model TT1.
  • The Model TT5 (formerly the Model TT2) is intended for testing specimens up to 0.15 inches thick that will require from 300 to 5000 pounds of tensile load to cause fracture. In general,  resistance-welded specimens are in this range. Also, specimens from arc-welded sheet metal can fall into this range. For specimens that will have loads exceeding 5000 pounds, the Model TT40 or Model TT100 is the correct choice. The model TT5 is also recommended for schools that are interested in teaching the concept of tensile testing.  It is easily portable and moderately priced.
