Carpet Peel & Tuft Tester

Home » Carpet Peel & Tuft Tester

Carpets which are badly constructed or poorly backed may lose complete tufts in some situations, for example on stairs.  In loop pile carpets, a good bind is necessary to prevent long runner loops formed. Tuft retention property is also an important factor in the useful life of a tufted or traditionalc carpet.

The Carpet Peel & Tuft tester is a motorized instrument designed to measure:

  • The force required to peel backing material from carpet
  • The force required to withdraw a single tuft, or loop of pile, from the carpet

Digital Force Gauge features:

  • 20 x 0.02 lb, 10 x 0.01 kgF, 100 x 0.1N, 220V
  • Peak memory for tensile loads
  • Accuracy: ± 0.5% of full scale ± digit
  • Safe overload: 150% accuracy
  • Selectable units of measurement: kg, N, or lbs
  • Push-button calibration
  • IPM – Intelligent Power Management system
  • Battery or AC operation
