In order to supply safe glass containers to the market, Toyo Glass runs a wide variety of strength tests. This Single Container Water Hammer Tester makes it possible to measure water hammer strength comfortably and accurately.
The test can be conducted with a single glass bottle without a carton.
Single Container Water Hammer Tester measures water hammer strength of a glass bottle by dangling a bottle at its neck and then dropping a weight on the top of the filled and capped bottle from above to generate Water Hammer Phenomenon. As no carton is required, the test can be conducted using only a single glass bottle, and due to that, the strength of a glass bottle itself can be examined.
Conceptual Diagram of Testing Device
Since no undesired reaction force occurs by hanging a glass bottle in the air, glass bottle falls exactly vertically.
Usage of Single Container Water Hammer Tester
There are two types of the tester. One type moves the head(weight) automatically with an air cylinder, and the other type, shown on the below demo, is a type which the head(weight) is moved by hand. Both types are available at Toyo Glass.
Strength test results of the tester
The benefit of Single Water Hammer Tester is that it can quantify the Water Hammer strength, which makes it possible to compare the strengths between products before design improvement and after design improvement.
