This is our in-house tensile testing machine. Like a nearly unstoppable force, it pulls things apart and measures the force required to do so. Strato clamped in our new LeMans hose and gave it a go. At 2.5 tons of force, the 316 clamps slowly stretched over the barbs, the hose did not even blink. Next time we’ll put twice as many clamps on and see what we get. 2.5 tons the hose is a tight as a drum but nowhere near breaking. Still we want to see what it take to rippy a LeMans hose up. Then we will compare it to the red standard.
