SDL Atlas has unveiled DryRate 201, a Drying Rate Tester designed to satisfy AATCC Test Method 201: Drying Rate of Fabrics: Heated Plate Method. The DryRate 201 determines the drying rate based on the evaporation rate when a fabric is placed in contact with a heated metal plate at a constant temperature and then saturated with a defined amount of water.

In fully automatic test mode, the operator simply needs to place the sample in the test area and the test will automatically run and generate the results report once completed. The instrument also features a manual test mode to allow for custom tests based on individual requirements.

The instrument comes with a touch screen controller for setting parameters, monitoring testing status, and reading final results. For more detailed analysis, testing data can be transmitted to a computer for real-time test curve display. Accurate water volume is dispensed by a built-in precision pump.

Testing conditions are monitored by the built-in anemometer (wind speed sensor), and infrared thermocouple probes. Specialised software calculates the end time of each test, the sample’s drying rate R and generates test reports. Integral environmental temperature and humidity monitoring functions monitor ambient temperature and humidity on the touch screen.

All test data can be included in custom test reports which can either be displayed directly on the instrument screen or on a connected computer for further analysis and comparison to previous tests. The new DryRate 201 is currently available for delivery world-wide. (SV)
