Frazier Differential Pressure Air Permeability Tester
The Low Pressure Air Permeability Machine was developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology of measuring the air permeability of textile type materials. and It is the acknowledged standard of the U.S. Government and the U.S. Textile Industry. The second model, High Pressure Air Permeability Machine is produced on the same principle as the Low Pressure Machine, but designed with a much greater versatility for use through its higher attainable airflow and differential pressure. Both models are extremely accurate and reliable, very easy to operate, and nearly maintenance free.
These machines were originally developed for measuring the air permeability of textile materials and are, in fact, the standard air permeability testing machines in the industry for quality control, research, development, performance and purchase specifications. It was quickly discovered that these machines are equally adaptable for measuring the air permeability with great accuracy and precision of any material that can be fitted to the physical dimensions of the machine. These materials include all fiber products such as paper, felt, nonwoven materials, filter’s and even wire cloth.
Martindale Abrasion Tester
The Martindale Abrasion Tester is designed to determine the abrasion resistance of textile fabrics. Fabrics of all types, including the types used in the shoe industry, may be tested by this method, including woven, non-woven, and knit apparel fabrics, household fabrics, industrial fabrics, and floor coverings. Abrasion resistance is measured by subjecting the specimen to a rubbing motion in the form of a geometric figure. Resistance to abrasion is evaluated by various means, including comparison to visual aids in the form of photographs or actual samples. Our Martindale Abrasion Tester meets ASTM-D4966, DIN-53863, ISO 20344, and BS-3424 test methods.
Portable Suter Tester
Suter Tester (Portable Water Resistance Tester) is designed to test the water pressure-resistance of waterproof-fiber cloth or other material, to obtain a precise water-resistance level for these materials. No electricity is required with the portable water penetration tester.
Water Penetration Tester - Hydrostatic Pressure Tester - Suter Tester
AATCC Water Penetration Tester (Hydrostatic Pressure Tester) is designed and manufactured according to AATCC-127-1989 (American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists). The main function of these water penetration testers is to test the endurance of waterproof fabric, cloth or other material, as exposed to water.
Dyeing Rubbing Tester
This state-of-the-art dyeing rubbing tester allows the user to judge the color firmness of dyeing or printed materials. The abrasive hammer is wrapped with either a dry or wet white cotton cloth, thus allowing abrasion of the colored sample with certain loads and times. The sample is then compared with a gray-scale to judge the color firmness.
For colored fabric or leather and similar materials, test the dyeing-color firmness against abrasion. Use the standard white cotton cloth (dry or wet) to wrap the abrasion hammer and attach with a fix load weight. Set abrasion to a specific number of times smoothly to the colored specimen. Then take out the white cotton cloth to compare with the standard gray-scale and evaluate the level of color firmness or dying or printing of the material.
Manual Wrap Reel
The manual wrap reel allows the user to wind yarn thread with the required length, and then test its strength of lea and quality. It can also be used for calculating the yarn-count.
The circumference on the manual wrap reel is adjustable. This will not disarray the yarn thread and will prevent overlapping. When revolving, this instrument can reduce the counts and time of revolving. The counter is used to read the instant winding-revolution.
Light Booths / Color Matching Cabinets
Colors appear differently under different lighting conditions. Use of a light booth to simulate different lighting conditions helps to obtain objective color assessment, improves communication and reduces product rejections. Qualitest offers a complete line of light booths which allow you to see what your product will look like - independent of location and environmental influences.
Bally Waterproofness Tester
The Bally Waterproofness Tester is used to test the dynamic waterproofness of leather materials. The waterproofness is determined by immersing a specimen in water and flexing by a constant speed. This machine is controlled by either timer of counter. Also equipped with alarm device and its fixtures are made of aluminum alloy.
Launder Meter - Launder Tester
The Launder Meter - Launder Tester - QT-7021 is designed to evaluate the color fastness to laundering of Textiles. A textile specimen in contact with one or two specified adjacent fabrics is mechanically agitated under prescribed condition of time and temperature in a soap solution, then rinsed and dried. The change in color of the specimen and the staining of the adjacent fabric or fabrics are assessed by comparison with the grey scales.
The Scorch Tester - QT-7022 is mainly used for testing the sublimation and firmness of fiber goods. The Scorch Tester - QT-7022 has electric heated plates between which the specimen is placed for a fixed time period, after which it is taken out and compared with a grey scale to appraise grade of color dyeing sublimation-endurance.
