Accudry2 totally tailored dryer for Textile Testing Labs

May '07
James H. Heal and Co. Ltd is excited to announce the official launch of their Accudry2; a brand new air vented, reverse action Standardised Tumble Dryer.

Textile Laboratories, throughout the world, carry out a wide range of tests, in which domestic laundering conditions are simulated: dimensional stability, durability, colour fastness, fabric and garment shrinkage, etc.

Until Accudry, the world's first standardised domestic tumble dryer, which was launched by Heals back in 1998, laboratories have been compelled to use normal home laundry dryers, purchased from high street retailers, with predictable problems of wide variations in performance from machine to machine and between different manufacturers.

There have also been widespread problems of machine reliability and of continuity of supply of particular models. Normal domestic tumble dryers are also inflexible, having at best, two fixed temperature settings, with broad temperature tolerance.

Accudry2 is specifically engineered for laboratory stability tests and is designed to reduce machine variables and operator error to the absolute minimum. The dryer is equipped with a single multilingual LCD control panel, which provides precise digital control over maximum exhaust temperature and the duration of heating and cooling periods.

Accudry2 corresponds to the requirements of EN ISO 6330:2000, EN 26330:1993 & ISO 6330:1984, conforms to the requirements of Marks and Spencer and Next and is suitable for use in the Woolmark Company's Test Methods TM 31 and TM 254.

Accudry2 exemplifies the James Heal approach to test instrument design and development: innovative instruments that set the standard in versatility and ease of operation.

The instrument will be on display on HEAL'S stand 145, Hall A4, at ITMA 2007 in Munich, Germany, between the 13th and 20th of September 2007.
