Know More about Hydrostatic Head Tester
Definition of hydrostatic pressure
Hydrostatic pressure refers to the resistance encountered when water passes through the fabric. The fabric is subjected to a continuous rise in water pressure until water beads up on the back of the fabric under standard atmospheric pressure. At this point, the measured water pressure value is the hydrostatic pressure. Because the greater the hydrostatic pressure that the fabric can withstand, the better the waterproofness or resistance to seepage.
Hydrostatic pressure units
The hydrostatic pressure can express in N/㎡, Kpa, and water column height m. And the conversion unit is 1m water column height equals 9.82Kpa.
Precaution and Maintenance
1 Before the first operation, the operator must read the Operation Manual carefully and receive special technical training.
2 Sweep the upper chuck lightly before placing the specimen to avoid affecting the test results.
3 The default value of the cylinder is 0.5MPa (can adjust according to the characteristics of the specimen). The maximum error range should not exceed plus or minus 0.2MPa.
4 The inlet pressure should be less than 0.8MPa but the maximum pressure should not exceed 1MPa.
5 Turn off the power and then remove the plug from the power outlet after each test.
6 Emergency stop and restart the instrument in case of malfunction.
7 In order to ensure the normal operation of the machine, the user must regularly check the water level of the test tank. Meanwhile, drain the water out if the machine will keep idle for a long time. You, therefore, need to turn on the drain switch (horizontal direction to the outlet pipe) and by all means, avoid wetting the electrical equipment. After completing the drainage, close the drainage switch (vertically to the outlet pipe) and check that the drainage switch and the pipe mouth must not fall off.
8 Keep the touch screen away from sharp hard objects.
9 No strong electromagnetic interference in the surrounding.

A: Hydrostatic pressure refers to the water permeability of fabrics under certain water pressure. It is suitable for all kinds of fabrics, including those treated with waterproofing. ydrostatic pressure method is used to measure the waterproofing of fabric here are static pressure method and dynamic pressure method . Static pressure is used for water-conducting fabrics, and dynamic pressure is used for coated or compact fabrics.
A: Yes, it is.
