Short Span Compression Tester SCT
Manufactured by Techlab Systems
Short span compression tester is used to measure the compressive strength of paper and cardboard samples by the SCT method (0.7mm short distance compression between jaws). The test is performed using a 15 mm wide paper or cardboard specimen and it is compressed until failure occurs.
The characteristics of a material namely the compressive strength can be determined by the SCT method to a much higher degree of accuracy that the more traditional methods of Ring Crush Test (RCT), Concora Linear Test or Linear Crush Test (LCT) and Concora Corrugated Crush Test (CCT)
Because of the increased accuracy and repeatability the SCT is now being used more and more
It is still possible to convert the result from SCT to RCT.
