The Gelbo Flex Tester with Particle Counter is to measure the amount of loose fibres (lint) shed from non-woven materials. Which is in a 30 second time period of flexing. It is important that non-woven textile materials must have a low tendency to lint. Thus, ensuring their quality.
Gelbo flex tester with particle counter is useful to measure the lint and other particles generation of non wovens. And also other textile materials in the dry state by Gelbo flex testing methods. The Gelbo flex tester provides twisting and compression actions for specimen. This realeses fragments and lints during flexing in the air stream. The machine records these and classifies in the particle counter. This instrument is a fast and accurate instrument . This test is also useful for other materials like tissues.
The sample is subjected to repetitive twisting and compression cycles, air is withdrawn from the testing chamber and particles in the air stream are counted and classified with the laser particle counter.
