Top 4 tips to maintain Polariscope Strain Viewer efficiently

If you are working in the glass bottle manufacturing industry, then you must know that these bottles will be subjected to high stress and strain. Thus, by testing the bottles rigorously against cracks, strains or stress, manufacturers can identify potential weaknesses or vulnerabilities within bottle designs early on, allowing for necessary improvements before they reach consumers' hands. To make it easy for glass bottle manufacturers to conduct quality tests on the materials, we at Presto have designed a high-quality lab testing instrument known as the Polariscope Strain Viewer - Deluxe model.

This is one of the high-quality lab testing instruments that can be used to identify the stress and strains present in PET & glass bottles. It works on the optical principle where the refraction of light rays is considered. In perfect structures, polarized light follows a straight path and does not deviate when passes through the medium.

In this blog, we are going to discuss brief information about the Presto bottle testing instrument and how to maintain this quality testing equipment efficiently. So, let us get started!
