Measure titer on single fibers has never been easier
Vibroskop 500 is an instrument for the automatic determination of the titer (dtex, den) of single fibers. By an advanced and patented approach of the vibration method (Vibroskop method) it assures best accuracy and reliability and it eliminates any influence of the operator.
As the inventor of this vibration method, we are proud to say that it has become the world standard instrument for the measurement of linear density (dtex, den).
Vibroskop 500 meets all international standards (ASTM, BISFA, ISO, DIN, …). It is one button operated with ergonomic and easy to read displays. In most installations, Vibroskop 500 is used in combination with the tensile tester Vibrodyn 500 to efficiently create complete tests with individual titer, tenacity and elongation results, thereby giving reliable quality feedback.
Tasks and application
Electronic instrument for automatic determination of the titer
(linear density, fineness, denier, dtex) of single staple fibers
and monofilaments by means of the vibration method.
Prior to a test, the appropriate pretension weight has to be
selected and set on the instrument. Thereafter, a fiber with the
corresponding pretension weight is loaded into the instrument.
By pressing the operation button shortly the measurement is
initiated – the fiber is set into its natural vibration by an
electronic delta impulse. The titer is derived from the fiber‘s
vibration frequency. The automatic measurement assures easiest
handling, minimum influence of the operator and therewith best
accuracy and repeatability.
The sophisticated evaluation software allows to generate
the results report in either dtex, denier or both values.
Combined with Vibrodyn 500, a complete results report with
titer, elongation and individual tenacity (tension at break based
on the individual fiber titer) is created.
