Fibre Length and Strength Tester FIBROTEST
The FIBROTEST combines fibre length measurement and fibre strength test on fibre bundles within one instrument. The two measurements are executed in succession on the same sample. After completing these measurements, the sample mass is automatically determined. This enables the calculation of the exact and absolute value of the tenacity.
The operation of the FIBROTEST does not require any calibration cotton. Is is hence suitable to also measure fibre length and strength on man-made fibres and fibre blends. Nevertheless, relative measurements utilizing calibration cotton as usual in high-volume instruments are also possible.
The FIBROTEST is the first testing instrument worldwide which has received the ITMF recognition (see itmf.org). The ITMF ICCTM hence recognizes the usefulness and benefits of the FIBROTEST for spinning mills and research institutes.
Moreover, FIBROTEST is well-suited for recycled fibres. When converting garments back into fibres, very different techniques can be applied and very different fibre qualities can be achieved. Fibre length distribution and contamination, e.g. from yarn remnants, are among the most important quality parameters for recycled fibres. Due to its unique absolute measurement techniques, FIBROTEST is the right choice to determine fibre qualities in recycling.
In cases where only the measurement of the fibre length distribution is needed, FIBROLENGTH is an effective alternative to FIBROTEST.
