ITMF-ICCTM recognizes fiber-testing instrument 'AQUALAB'

Apr '14
The ITMF International Committee on Cotton Testing Methods (ICCTM) gave full recognition to AQUALAB, a fiber-testing instrument produced by Mesdan Spa, Italy. The ICCTM met in Bremen/Germany on March 18, 2014 at the start of the 32nd International Bremen Cotton Conference. 
 
Mesdan Aqualab is an instrument to measure the moisture content and moisture regain of fiber. The moisture measurement is obtained through an innovative microwave low power resonance technology that is relatively fast and easy to use.
 
Rapid measurement of moisture content and regain is useful throughout every stage in the cotton value chain to optimize yarn and fabric production and accurately determine value.
 
Recognition is conferred on testing instruments and methods that are according to the ICCTM beneficial for the cotton value added chain. Key criteria for recognition of an instrument are the performance of the test method which implies the measurement of new cotton characteristics, better resolution/less uncertainty/less influences to existing methods or direct user benefit such as reduced operating time without reducing the resolution.
