T.M. Long Upgrades and Parts

Inventure Laboratories understands that many Long machines are functional except for their force transducer clips and that technical support and replacement components are not forthcoming.

We offer bolt-on upgrade transducer clips for the T.M. Long incorporating the same 21st-century force measuring technology that is employed on our AccuPull Biaxial Film Stretcher. Our upgrades are available for transducer clips used in both 2-in. (7.2X) and 4-in. (4X) sample size applications.

Features and Benefits

  • Piezoelectric force sensing technology for high-sensitivity, accuracy, and repeatability.
  • Bolt-on design directly replaces existing TM Long force transducer clip. Simple conversion – just remove two screws and your old transducer (see figure) - does not include replacement clamp, fittings, or pressure lines.
  • 450°F (230°C) temperature limit.
  • Two (2) user-selectable ranges keep signal-to-noise ration high:
    15-lbf and 30-lbf
    Self-contained electronics requiring 110VAC.
    Temperature and overload immune.
    Absolute measurements – never needs calibration.
    Interfaces with your existing data acquisition system.
    Output is analog, –10 to +10VDC

Other Upgrades

Keep in touch as Inventure Laboratories is in the process of developing other upgrades and replacement parts for the venerable T.M. Long line of machinery. These upgrades and replacements will all incorporate the 21st-century hardware and software based on our own Biaxial Film Stretcher technology. Contact us with your needs.
