Vampire Bite Force
Application Summary

In an attempt to estimate the strength of a vampire’s bite, Spike TV’s Deadliest Warrior called upon the assistance of a four-legged friend: an alligator. Utilizing FUTEK's LLB Miniature Load Button Load Cell, the esteemed group of experts for DW were able to confirm a bite force of nearly 1,800 lb.

Products in Use

Miniature Load Buttons (LLB Series) paired with FUTEK's USB Solutions and SENSIT Test and Measurement Software

How it Works
  1. Pairing the FUTEK LLB450 with our USB Solution and SENSIT™ Test and Measurement Software, the Deadliest Warrior experts were able to instantaneously measure/view the force applied by the alligator.

  2. In an attempt to bring a source seemingly comparable to that of a vampire, Deadliest Warrior called upon the assistance of a four-legged friend: an alligator.

  3. Determined to have a strikingly proportionate jaw strength resemblance, the Deadliest Warrior crew taunted our reptile ally with a planked rod enclosing a LLB450 - a miniature 5,000 lb. capacity load button load cell.

  4. With sheer grit, the alligator chomped down onto this apparatus with a recorded force of 1,723 lb.
