Rycolab Bendtsen Roughness and Air Permeability Tester
Measures roughness & air permeability according to the Bendtsen method
Measures the roughness and air permeability according to the Bendtsen method and Gurley porosity is calculated from the measured values.
Standards: ISO 5636-3, ISO 8791-2, TAPPI UM 535, SCAN P21, SCAN P60
Built on a sturdy aluminum frame, the device has a built in touch-screen and microprocessor and equipped with up to 3 measuring heads for top and bottom roughness measurements and for air permeability.
The flow rate range is 25 – 5000 ml/sec. and other flow rates ranges are available on request.
The sample to be tested is placed in the measuring area. By pushing the start button on the touch screen the measurement cylinders lower onto the sample. The measuring head is set free and actuated by gravity.
A pressure difference is generated between the inner measuring head and the environment and the device detects the air that’s flowing out between the blade of the measuring head and the sample. As soon as the flow is stable the device shows the values in ml/sec on the display.
The air permeability head lowers on the surface of the sample as well and locks the measuring area towards the outer air. An air stream through the paper is established and as soon as the flow rate is stable the device shows the values in ml/min and in Gurley seconds (calculated) on the display.
