Used to test the resistance of the flow of air through woven, knitted and nonwoven textile materials, James Heal has launched the AirPro air permeability tester. It is supplied with the intuitive TestWise software, which has pre-loaded standards, a 'Quick Test' function and full flexibility to create an individual standard. Minimal operator training is required. The TestWise software offers flexibility with standards and comprehensive reporting options.
Different test head sizes are also available in the tester from James H. Heal & Co. Ltd., Halifax/UK, which are suitable for a range of applications and standards. Changing test heads is quick and can be done without disconnecting wires and changing the pressure.
The illuminated test bed can accommodate large samples, suitable for a variety of different materials, and medical grade air valves keep airflow consistent.
The new equipment is suitable for a range of applications, to test to a range of different international standards. AirPro is used to measure the resistance of the flow of air through products including performance apparel, medical textiles, PPE, infant products such as bedding, nonwovens, geotextiles and more.
