Moisture Management Tester TF128

4.5 (6 reviews)

Moisture Management Tester TF128,is used to measure the dynamic liquid transport properties of textiles such as knitted, woven fabrics, and nonwoven textile fabric. Moisture Management Tester TF128 mainly tests the absorption and diffusion performance of fabric to sweat. It is used to conduct testing of moisture management in textile. The absorption and diffusion of work by fabric directly affect the comfortable performance of wearing clothes. In particular, only the sportswear fabrics that can absorb sweat and dry quickly can make the whole exercise process comfortable and easy.

How does Moisture Management Tester TF128 work? It simulates sweat with physiological saline, by measuring the overall dynamic performance of saline in moisture management fabric such as knitted and woven fabrics, then the wetting time of saline through both sides of the fabric, the absorption speed of saline on both sides of the fabric, the diffusion radius of saline on both sides of the fabric, etc., to comprehensively evaluate the sweat absorption and quick-drying performance of the fabric.

The Moisture Management Tester TF128 meets a wide range of international standards, such as AATCC 195, and GB/T 21655.2, and is currently sold in 42 countries worldwide. We offer our textile customers high-quality Moisture Management Testers to help you quickly identify the most suitable functional textiles.

Features of the Moisture Management Tester TF128

Fast and Accurate testing, 2min to complete.

Moisture Management Tester TF128 contains a pair of upper and lower multi-loop resistance measurement probes. Simply drop the salt solution on the sample. As the solution passes through the sample, the computer can dynamically record the change in resistance of the upper and lower probes and obtain accurate readings of the wetting time, water absorption rate, soaking radius, and diffusion rate of the fabric through a standard calculation formula.

It is equipped with a precision motor control device.

One key to starting the test,  the motor automatically drives the test head to the specified position, with the built-in pressure detection device, the test will stop by reaching a fixed pressure automatically.

The test is reliable.

The matching transparent shield can well protect the sample and ensure the stability of the testing process and the accuracy of the results.

The drip system is accurate and stable.

Moisture Testing Machine TF128 has a liquid recovery function, to prevent the infusion tube salt water crystals from blocking the pipeline.

Full metal shell, good anti-interference performance.

Easy to use.

Simple buttons, an open case, and a center light on the sensor make it easier for the tester to operate the instrument and place the sample precisely.

Note: A customized PC is needed for this instrument.

More: the mmt test means Moisture Management Tester test and MMT also can do a wicking test, Our Moisture Management Tester is especially for wicking test textiles and complies with fabric wicking test standards. Contact us for more fabric wicked test methods.

Moisture-wicking meaning is to test whether the fabric meets some performance requirements of the garment, especially sportswear.

Test Principle of Moisture Management Tester TF128

The Moisture Management Tester TF128 includes an upper and lowers concentric liquid sensor with multiple probes, the liquid tube in the upper sensor will simulate the fixed concentration of human sweat saline water, drops evenly on the fabric, and the sensor probes test the resistance between different rings to reflect the change in resistance of the liquid in the fabric absorption and diffusion, so as to get the ability of the fabric to absorb and diffuse sweat.

Test Specification

The Moisture Management Tester is used to test and evaluate the liquid water dynamic transfer performance of textiles. This testing method provides an objective method for measuring the liquid water dynamic transfer properties of knitted fabrics, woven fabrics, and nonwovens, and is used in the quality control of fabrics, the research and development of new functional fabrics and garments, etc. This method is not used to test the transport performance of vapor water. This testing method is not suitable for coated fabrics, glued fabrics, or fabrics of complex structures. This testing method is not suitable for fabrics with high water absorbability such as woolen fabrics or thick fabrics.

Test Principle

When the fabric sample is placed horizontally, the liquid water contacts with the soaking surface, then diffuses along the soaking surface of the fabric, then penetrates from the soaking surface of the fabric to the permeable surface, and finally diffuses on the permeable surface of the fabric. After dripping the test solution into the soaking surface of the sample, test the dynamic transfer of the liquid water by using the sensor in close contact with the sample, and calculate the related performance indexes, so as to evaluate the moisture absorption, drying and sweating performance of the textiles.



The testing procedure of Moisture Management Tester

1. Prepare the test fabric, which should be approximately 8cm x 8cm in size, and place it in the standard testing environment for at least 24 hours.

2. Turn on the power switch, activate the computer's wireless connection, and connect to the MMT wifi (it will automatically connect shortly after power is turned on).

3. Launch the MMT program ("Start" -> "All Programs" -> "MMT" -> "MMT system application").

4. Place a towel/fabric on the surface of the lower sensor, press and hold the water pump button until the test liquid drips onto the surface of the towel, and then wipe the surface of the upper sensor dry.

5. Place the test fabric, start the test, and inject water for 20 seconds, while the testing time is 120 seconds. Avoid running other programs during the test. After the test is complete, click the appropriate button to view the "Moisture Content vs Time" curve graph, and the "Water Position vs Time" moisture distribution map, and click on other buttons to observe the dynamic changes in moisture on the fabric surface during testing.



Terminology Definition

Absorption Speed: When the water content changes, the average absorption velocity of the liquid on the upper and lower surface of the sample during the testing process.

Lower Surface: For the purposes of this test, it refers to the surface that the specimen facing the lower layer sensor, as well as the front of the fabric or the outer surface of the garment.

Maximum Wetting Radius: The maximum radius of the wetting area at the end of a given time when the fabric begins to soak.

Overall Moisture Management Capability: The comprehensive performance of liquid water dynamic transfer in fabric. The water absorption rate of the fabric permeation surface, accumulative one-way transport capacity, and spreading speed of the permeation surface were synthesized.

Diffusion Velocity: The rate accumulative value from the test solution drops down to the fabric surface until the fabric is wetted with the maximum area.

Wetting Time: The time from the beginning of the test to the wetting of the upper and lower surfaces of the sample is expressed in seconds.

As a professional supplier of textile instruments, we are committed to continually improve the user experience, TESTEX Textile Testing Equipment is a reliable choice for testing textile quality.

    Q: What is moisture management test?

    A: The Moisture Management Tester (MMT) measures using the AATCC 195 test method to evaluate and classify the liquid management properties of fabrics.The sample is placed horizontally, the liquid water contacts with the soaking surface finally diffuse on the permeable surface of the fabric. After dripping the test solution into the sample's soaking surface, test the liquid water's dynamic transfer by  using the sensor in close contact with the sample and calculate the related performance indexes to evaluate the moisture absorption, drying, and sweating performance of the textiles.

    Q: How Does Moisture Management Work? 

    A:  Moisture management is demonstrated in terms of moisture absorption rate, one-way transportation capability, and spreading/drying rate regarding the dynamic liquid transport performance of textiles such as knitted fabrics and woven fabrics.
