Oven Plus 30 Bank Shear


Product Overview

Shear Stand

  • Rugged construction, capable of withstanding the abuse of the production environment
  • Two component design allows the switch unit to be separated from the timer control box
  • High temperature, 8' long (2.5m) cable interfaces the two components
  • Designed to use standard, 2" x 3" (50mm x 75mm) format, test panels
  • Capable of holding panels of various thicknesses, up to 1/4" (6mm)
  • Mechanical switches can be calibrated to trip when using weights from 100 to 1,000 grams
  • Adjustable feet allow the user to level the testing plane
  • Panel rack is marked for the standard 178° back tilt, as specified by most shear test methods
  • Adjustable angle panel rack allows the user to easily change the test angle from 178° to 90°
  • Shear stand operating temperature range 20° - 400° F (-6° - 204° C)
  • Shears are designed to be used with weights from 100gr to 1000gr
  • Any weight which is larger than the 1000gr requires the S-EXT(Shear Extension) accessory
  • The largest weight that can be safely used with the shear stand is 3000gr


Timer Box

  • Compact and easy to use
  • Easy-to-read, 0.5" (1 cm) LCD timer display is set to time in increments of 1/10 of a minute
  • Timer box operating temperature range 32° - 150° F (0° - 70° C)
  • Timer box has universal input voltage from 85-265 VAC (50/60 Hz)
  • Optional thermocouple accessory records failure temperature



  • 4 segment programmable controller, capable of performing SAFT ramped temperature testing
  • Maximum oven operating temperature of 500°F (260°C)
  • Temperature control accuracy of oven ± 0.5°F at 410°F (1°C at 210°C)
  • Temperature distribution accuracy of oven ± 1.5°F at 500°F (2.8°C at 260°C)
  • Oven is capable of achieving a temperature rise of 2°F (1°C) per minute (dependent on thermal mass)
  • The switch unit of the 30 Bank Shear fills approximately 50% of the interior volume in the oven
  • Stainless steel interior construction of the oven
  • Forced-air circulation type oven (convection)
  • Vent hole in rear of oven for accessory access
  • Easy-open oven door latch minimizes disruption of testing
  • Over-temperature protection and other safety features designed into oven electronics
  • RS-232 serial interface to controller, includes programming and data-logging software
  • 4,000 watt heating capacity
  • Standard oven input voltage - 220 VAC, 3-Phase, (50/60 Hz)

Some of the more popular test methods that this device is capable of performing.

  •     ASTM: D 4498

Full official manual including test methods and cleaning as well as set up for testing of PSA tapes. 16th edition.  PSTC’s Test Methods contains standard procedures for quality control of pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) tape testing in the laboratory and measuring tape performance characteristics. PSTC was founded in 1953 to promote the manufacture of PSA tape products high in quality and performance. PSTC continues to be the leading North American voice in the proper use of pressure sensitive tapes, developing standard nomenclature and establishing test methods.
