4.79 (14 reviews)

Hydrostatic Head Tester TF163C or hydrostatic pressure testing machine is used to measure the resistance of a fabric to the penetration of water under hydrostatic pressure. It is one of the hydro testing machines. Hydrostatic Head Tester TF163C complies with testing standards like AATCC127, ATSC127-2008, EN 20811, ISO 811, etc. Please contact us for the Hydrostatic head test(water penetration test) procedure.


Application of Hydrostatic Head Tester TF163C

Hydrostatic Head Tester TF163C or hydrostatic pressure testing machine TF163C is used for measures the resistance of a fabric to the penetration of water under hydrostatic pressure. It is applicable to all types of fabrics, including canvas, coated fabrics, cover fabrics, rainwear fabrics, and geotextile materials, as well as films, those treated with a water-resistant or water-repellent finish.

A test sample is placed on the clamping head; the parameters of the test are set on the Android-based software on the Samsung pad; the system automatically starts by pressing down the upper clamping arm; the system automatically adjusts the machine and shifts nozzles if required; after a few seconds the test results are then displayed and excel report is generated; the reports can be output to a USB / SD card, or send to any network by WIFI connected.

Features of Hydrostatic Head Tester TF163C

Accurate testing
Test results are highly consistent with international third-party testing institutions and have been well received by customers in more than 60 countries.

Servo motor control, stable operation, and longer life
Closed-loop control, the servo motor is driven piston, to achieve a unique water pressure rise rate balance system; wide range of rising rate, freely adjustable; booster system with dynamic feedback adjustment to prevent overload.

Multiple testing methods, more practical
Variable test methods can be selected, and test time and variable boost rate can be set and saved; there are 3 test methods, including
boost mode, constant pressure mode, and constant pressure timing mode, to meet the various needs of customers.

Rapidly produce test results and output reports
Equipped with LED lights for easy observation of the testing process; real-time test results are displayed on the large color touch screen; test results can be formed into reports on the software and printed out directly.

    On the market, there are many kinds of tents, especially 5000mm hydrostatic head tent and 6000mm hydrostatic head tent, which is distinguished by waterproof index. Let’s show you how to test it.


    Hydrohead Test Method

    What is hydrostatic head tester:

    The definition of hydrostatic head is the pressure of homogeneous fluid act on an object, which can be explained that each part of an object is forced uniformly. The object will shrink its volume when the hydrostatic pressure is enhanced, but the shape will not be changed.

    Hydrostatic head test procedure:

    1. Turn on the power.

    2. Turn on the air pump and adjust the air pressure governor to ensure that air pressure in a reasonable range.

    3. Pouring water into the water tank until it reaches to the highest water level.

    4. Setting and saving the parameter on the setting page according to the standard, and go to the test page.

    5. Place the sample on the clamp to fix it, and then put the pressure transducer into

    Attention: The pressure transducer should be zeroed or cleared. Otherwise, the test result might be inaccurate.

    1. Start the test and observe the sample.

    2. the third water droplet has appeared on the surface of the sample, we should stop the test and record the data.

    3. After that, we need to release the sample and change another one for the next test.

    4. Draining the water after all the test is finished, and turn the power off.
