Syringe Compression Fixture


This fixture is designed to test compression force of a syringe plunger, as per ISO 7886-1 and other relevant standards. Four blank stainless steel inserts are included, and may be drilled in the field to accommodate various diameter barrels. When used with appropriate instruments, such as an ESM303 test stand and Series 7 force gauge, initial and secondary peaks may be captured, as well as average force over a period of time.

Custom drilled inserts are available from Mark-10 upon request. Contact us for further information.
