IDM Instruments offers Tissue Softness Analyser from Emtec.
Tissue Softness Analyser is a new laboratory instrument to assess the softness of tissue and fabrics, for use within selection/incoming control of pulp/fibers (handsheet measurement), production control, product optimization, comparison of products and R&D.
The softness of tissue is a fundamental quality parameter for manufacturers and converters of tissue, as well as chemical suppliers and machine builders.
Utilising advanced technology, the Tissue Softness Analyser gathers the relevant single parameters including smoothness, compressibility, stiffness and crumpleability of tissue and calculates a softness parameter.
The Tissue Softness Analyser can be used on base tissues, tissue handkerchiefs, tissue towels, toilet tissue, facial tissue and tissue kitchen towels.
It features a user-friendly and easy to operate software program, with a menu driven measurement.
Other features include integrated measurement of ambient temperature and humidity, easy handling, robust construction, objective measuring method, high reproducibility of results and the option of operating with or without a PC, with results shown through an integrated display.
If the Tissue Softness Analyser is connected to a PC, there is the added benefit of results evaluation, data storage and trend presentation through high performance PC software.
