Extensometers for materials testing
Due to supply issues this model is presently not available. Contact Epsilon if you have an application that requires a submerged extensometer and you want to be notified by Epsilon when we introduce a submersible extensometer.
Submersible Extensometers – Model 4030
Submersible extensometers designed for performing tests in water, saline solutions, and other liquids compatible with the materials of construction.
Epsilon extensometers are COMPATIBLE WITH VIRTUALLY EVERY BRAND OF TEST EQUIPMENT and can be supplied with the correct connector to plug in directly, or supplied with a separate conditioner and amplifier.
WITH EPSILON’S 20+ YEAR HISTORY OF SERVICE to the materials testing community, you know we will be there to stand behind our products when your critical application requires it.
36 EXTENSOMETER MODELS are available in many thousands of variations. Our focus on helping customers has led to the development of models to cover nearly any test method.
The Model 4030 extensometer uses a special LVDT-like sensor to measure strains on samples submersed in water or other compatible liquids. The unit is provided with the signal conditioning electronics. The extensometer is a semi-custom design, which is available in smaller measuring ranges up to 5 mm (0.2 inches).
These are made entirely of corrosion-resistant materials, with Teflon cables and tough stainless steel knife edges. Optionally, they can also be supplied with ceramic knife edges and electrically isolated quick attach kit wires to minimize galvanic corrosion with test samples.
Contact Epsilon for help with configuring a system to meet your test needs.
