TACTIC TESTERS & IDLER SECTIONS

FOR ROTATING, FEEDING & INSPECTING ROUND MATERIAL


Model 76E series "Standard Duty" Testers

Model 76E "Standard Duty" Testers are furnished with tanks from 6" to 30" inside lengths (150-760mm). The choice depends upon the number of transducers that will be used and the types of tests to be performed. Typical size range for continuous use of "Standard Duty" systems is from 1/4"-4" (6-100mm) diameter tubes and bars up to about 2.5" (63mm) diameter for solid bars. On an occasional basis, at slower speed, these systems may accommodate tubes to about 6" (150mm) diameter and solid bars to 4" (100mm) in diameter.

Request Bulletin 760B for more details on these sturdy, 3 HP Testers.

Model 76F & G "Heavy Duty" Testers

"Heavy Duty" Testers are powered either by a 7.5 HP motor (76F) or by a 10 HP motor (76G). Test material size range for continuous operation is from 5/8" (16mm) to about 8" (200mm) for tubes and to about 5" (125mm) for solid bars. Occasional operation is possible, at reduced speed, with solid bars up to 6" (150mm) diameters. Choice of motor horsepower is determined by the lengths of pieces to be tested. Drive and idler wheels of 4" (100mm) diameter, wider tanks and heavy frame members make these Testers especially suitable for larger materials.
