Drying Rate Tester-Heated Plate Method

Drying Rate Tester-Heated Plate Method


Drying Rate Tester-Heated Plate Method,a fully automated testing
machine, is based on the requirement of US AATCC201
testing standard, specially developed an automatic fabric drying rate tester.

RF4008HP Drying Rate Tester, equipped with high precision hot-wire anemometer, IR thermocouple, PT100 temperature sensor, precision water dripping system, precision air flow control system and the air flow funnel designed based on the Fluid Dynamics Theory, together with PC software, automatically finishes a series of jobs, such as the dry time and dry rate tests, and data analysis. It greatly improves the working efficiency and the measurement accuracy, significantly reduces the difference and mistakes which may be introduced by operators.
Data transfer from the main machine to PC through USB cable. Data and curves can be saved and printed by the operators easily.
Wide range of air speed (0.2 – 4.5m/sec) and water dripping amount (0.05 – 4.5ml). Our RF4008HP not only meets the requirements of AATCC201, but also facilitates the design of fabrics.

Test Scope: All types of fabrics, including knits, wovens and non-wovens, as well as fabrics taken from end product items.
