The 17-36 Short Span Compression Tester measures the compression strength of paper and board. The distance or free span can be set from 0.3 - 0.7mm (steps of 0.1). When performing a compression test on such a short distance the stability of the clamps and instrument is very important. The 17-36 Short Span directs all the forces of the clamped sample to the load cell, making it one of the most accurate instrument available on the market.
