Elongation Test of Infusion Solution Bag


Fresenius Kabi, global manufacturer of pharmaceutical products and delivery systems for infusion therapies and clinical nutrition, needed to ascertain the elongation capacity of a polyolefin film used in the manufacture of an infusion solution container. The customer could not find a test stand on the market with sufficient crosshead travel to effect the required elongation of the material.


Mecmesin’s distributor Precitool Mexico supplied the customer with an AFG 1000 N force gauge, a set of Pneumatic Grips and a MultiTest motorised stand, specially adapted to provide an increased crosshead travel of 1000 mm. This custom-engineered system has enabled Fresenius Kabi to improve their production quality control, as they are now able to perform a conclusive tensile test on the film to ensure it can withstand the required 500% elongation.


‘We purchase Mecmesin products because of their versatility, and the excellent local support we always receive in Mexico. This particular system works extremely well on our application.’
