The device described below was developed for better quality control of ceramic rings used in transducer construction. Previous tests conducted by Stanford Research Institute indicate that about 6 of the rings used in constructing TR-208 transducer elements have abnormally low tensile strength. This means that there is approximately 25 probability that a finished transducer element with a 4 ring stack will have at least one abnormally weak ring. This production test device is used to stress each ring to a safe working level, approximately 60 of tensile yield strength and thereby eliminate any faulty rings before they are used in a transducer assembly.
