Grips, specimen holders, quick-change adapters, and pull rods rated for high-temperature testing in furnaces.

Quick-Change Adapters

Quick-change adapters are typically used in hot tensile applications to provide simplified load train installation. They consist of a button-head washer that is threaded onto the room temperature end of a pull rod. The washer and pull rod are then inserted through a slot in the adapter body.
