Washmeter 38 allows to determine colour fastness tests subjected to washing and to dry washing on fabrics


Washmeter 38 allows to perform colour fastness tests on fabrics simulating the domestic and industrial washing with water or the dry cleaning with diathermic liquids asperchlorethylene and trichloroethylene

Washmeter 38 is composed of a stainless steel tank able to contain water or other diathermic liquids up to 140C.
Temperature setting for colour fastness test can be configured on Touch screen.

The logic output commands promptly the activation of static relays to keep temperature always under a constant regulation of 1C, while a bargraph visualized on the screen shows the current ongoing process.


Simultaneous rotation of 4 stainless steel cans with 1200 ml of inner capacity or 8 of 550 ml.

Series of steel balls for the agitation of fabric samples contained inside the cans.

Acoustic signal and automatic end of cycle let the operator free by any manual actions.

VITON seals necessary for dry cleaning with diathermic liquids as e.g. perchlorethylene and trichlorethylene solvents.
