Drying Rate Tester 201 complies with AATCC 201
Thermetrics new Drying Rate Tester 201 (DRT201) determines the drying rate of a fabric based on the evaporative rate that occurs when a predetermined amount of water is absorbed into a fabric that is positioned upon a heated plate set to human skin temperature, and then dried with constant controlled airflow.
This device complies with AATCC Test Method 201 - Drying Rate of Textiles: Heated Plate Method
Tests begin with the delivery of a small amount of water (0.2 ml) to the sample, which has been placed onto the hotplate surface. ThermDAC software then displays a real-time graph which charts the sample’s drying rate over time, and upon conclusion of the test automatically calculates the specimen’s drying rate under the measured test conditions.
