The Model 4340 differs from the traditional manual densometers in several ways.
1/ The Model 4340 utilizes the latest mass flow and servo-regulator technology to provide a quick, accurate test that is oil-free.
2/ Second, pneumatic cylinders insure both a consistent clamping pressure as well as an automatic test feature; which allows the user to test a sample several times without constantly opening and closing the test area by hand.
3/ With the addition of an auto-drive mechanism, the user can program the number tests as well as the span they are tested over. Therefore, a sheet or strip of paper can be analyzed automatically, with output in either Gurley seconds, Sheffield, Bendsten or Bekk equivalent seconds.
