HEAL'S Elmatear is a powerful and versatile Digital Tear Tester for accurately testing textiles, nonwovens and a wide variety of similar materials, including paper, board and plastic. The extensively re-designed Model 855 features contemporary styling and sophisticated new controls that simplify and accelerate routine tear testing.

The instrument's intelligent operating system is equipped with industry-specific features and terminologies for the user's convenience and ease of operation. The operator selects the unit of measurement and the number of plies, using a state-of-the-art LCD Touch Screen. Test results are displayed digitally and no cumbersome calculations are required. Visible and audible indicators confirm valid results or signal the need to change the number of plies and/or the pendulum weight.

Automatic pendulum weight detection and automatic zeroing have been incorporated to further diminish the scope for operator error. Another major feature of Elmatear is quick and easy specimen clamping using innovative rotary cam lock jaws. Statistical analysis is possible without the need of connection to a PC. However, the PC Software Package is designed to provide tools for saving, recalling, deleting and printing test results.

The operation of Elmatear is intrinsically safe, release of the pendulum requires both hands, finger traps have been eliminated and, after a test, the pendulum is automatically arrested. Elmatear² is supplied complete and the price of the equipment includes a full set of Pendulum Weights (equivalent to the traditional pendulums A–D) as well as corresponding check weights, a spare blade and four textile specimen preparation templates.

An optional E Pendulum Weight Kit (with corresponding check weight and interchangeable jaw faces) is offered to increase the capacity of the instrument to 128N.

Key features of the Elmatear are the LCD graphics touch-screen, Automatic pendulum weight detection, Automatic zeroing, Two-handed pendulum release, Automatic pendulum arrest, Sample 'notched' sensor, Interchangeable jaw faces (E Kit only), Visual and audible limits warnings, USB PC connection and an Optional datalogger software.
