Water Resistance Tester

Water Resistance Tester (Permeameter)

Approx Price: Rs 70,000 / Unit 


The GlobePermeometer for sole leather consists of a fixed platform with its upper surface covered by a strip of cotton gauge kept moist by a slow flow of distilled water from holes in the platform. A brass roller is provided to move in a horizontal direction along the length of the platform with the help of a motor, gearbox, and link mechanism. The roller is mounted on ball bearings with its axis horizontal and perpendicular to the direction of movement of the roller.

The test specimen is kept on the platform with its one ends clamped to it. The other end of the specimen is clamped to the roller. The to-and-fro movement of the roller gives repeated bending and straightening effect to the specimen, with the roller exerting a constant force on the portion of the specimen located under it. The specimen is kept taut during its movement with the help of springs fitted to the roller. An electronic arrangement is provided to give an audio–visual signal to indicate penetration of water through the test specimen.

The equipment is finished in shore blue metallic painting and bright chrome / zing plating to give it a corrosion resistant finish. All components that come in contact with water during the test are made of brass or aluminium to avoid their corrosion.
