Instrument Details
Instrument/Facility Name: Yarn abrasion tester
Make                                   : MAG
Model                                  : MAG computerised abrasion tester MAG-Y0901
Specification   :

Click to ViewYarn abrasion tester is used to determine the abrasion resistance of the single yarn and plied yarn. In this instrument sample will be abraded with reciprocating abrasion bar when tested.

  Working Principles
Click to ViewThe measurement of abrasion resistance of yarns is desirable to prevent broken yarns in the processes of weaving, knitting and stitching or any other process, where the yarn is subject to rubbing abrasion and forces due to strain. Several yarns may be tested simultaneously in this instrument. Reciprocating motion of abrasion bar is covered with standardized abrasive paper so as to simulate the rigors of weaving process on the yarn.

  User Instructions
Single yarn & ply yarn abrasion and C.V.%5 bobbins
