Measures the Air Permeability of Textile Fabrics

The Rycolab Air Permeability Tester is a floor standing unit on wheels that measures air the permeability in clothing, industrial fabrics, technical, downproof, nonwovens, filters, paper, felts, tents, foam materials and other types of materials used in face masks.

UNI EN ISO 9237:97, ISO 48, AFNOR G-07 11, ASTM D-737, EDANA 140.1, TAPPI T-251

Differential Pressure for Medical Protective Masks Kit
This measures the air permeability of protective medical masks according to Standards EN14683:2019 and ASTM F2100:2019.

The differential pressure kit EN14683 measures up to eight results at several points on the mask. At the end of the test procedure, sampling across the whole mask surface is averaged to determine the specific air flow resistance.

Precision volumetric counter for air flow measurements Pressure transducer - measurement range up to 2500 Pa
Ultra-silent internal vacuum unit with sound pressure level < 40 dB QUICK CHECK with flow meter reading in real time
HMI touch screen with 5” crystal liquid display Test area reduction flanges of 50, 20, 10, 5, 2 cm²
Metal plate for periodic calibration check Automatic pressure drop adjustment
Application software BAP4.0, for test monitoring, statistics & trend analysis ASCII printer for test reports
