Moisture Spreading Tester RF4008MST

Moisture Spreading Tester



Moisture Spreading Tester (MST) is designed to measure dynamic liquid transport properties of fabrics.

The MST consists of upper and lower concentric measurement sensors. The method is to hold the specimen between the two concentric moisture sensors and introduce standard test solution to the top surface of the specimen. The electrical resistance changes between the upper and lower sensors and the rings. Then the data will be recorded dynamically by the PC software.

1. The RF4008MST is a new, professional and fashionable design combined with modern industrial aesthetics.

2. Comprehensively optimized the performance of the instrument and upgraded the key components.

a) The 48 Sector Measurement Sensors: It provides much more accurate test result than the 7-circles sensors.

b) Reduce the spring force of the top sensor needles to improve the contact reliability greatly so as to improve the repeatability and accuracy of the resistance measurement greatly.

c) A loadcell build inside the top test head, which can apply different loading weight to the specimen.

d) Measurement sensors automatic cleaning function, to prevent the sensors from disassembling frequently, to ensure the measurement repeatability.

3. Touchscreen control and powerful PC software not only display test data and curves, also provide two different calculation methods for the testing result.


The Measurement of Characteristic Values of Samples: Realistically reflects the absorption rate of samples. Different fabrics with same rate of moisture content shows different electric resistance. No need to use one kind of “reference fabric” to determine different fabrics’ moisture content.


The RF4008MST will measure the following parameters or indexes:

· Overall Moisture Management Capacity

· Accumulative One-Way Transport Capacity

· Wetting Time for top and bottom surfaces

· Absorption Rate for top and bottom surfaces

· Max Wetted Radius for top and bottom surfaces

· Spreading Speed for top and bottom surfaces


Test Scope:Knit and woven fabrics or quick-absorption-and-quick-drying fabrics.
