Mechanical Testing of Needles and Syringes

Syringes have been a fact of life since the 1st century AD. They are utilized in a myriad of applications, from drug administration to precise fluid measurement. They are also used in the application of compounds like lubricants. Hence, it is essential to ensure the quality of syringes and needles.

Tinius Olsen Tension and Compression Testing Machine

The H5K-S / H5K-T tension and compression testing machine from Tinius Olsen is the ideal solution to ensure the quality of syringes and needles. The H5K-S/H5K-T tension and compression testing machine together with the test specific attachment reference S442 as outlined by international standards ISO 7886 and ISO 8537 can provide a complete testing solution, including measurement of force required for syringe operation, puncture forces, pull off forces, and freedom from air and liquid leakage.

The Horizon software from Tinius Olsen facilitates the tests to be carried out easily and includes the accurate and consistent results produced in the generated test report. The output graph that plots force against displacement provides a graphical demonstration of the performance of the component during the test.
