TEXTEST AG, a Switzerland-based manufacturer of testing instruments for technical textiles, is proud to introduce the forth generation Hydrostatic Head Tester, the FX 3000 HYDROTESTER IV. With close to one thousand delivered units of the previous generations, the FX 3000 series has become the standard instrument for water resistance testing worldwide. The new FX 3000-IV is available in three models with different maximum test pressures, ranging from 500 mbar up to 5 bar (50 m water column).
All models can be operated with the optional Automatic Drop Detector, which eliminates the need for an operator to watch the sample during the test. This device automatically terminates the test when the first or the third drop has penetrated the sample. An Automatic Level Control is available to fill the water reservoir before the first test, and to refill the tank in between tests. Both options greatly increase the testing efficiency.

The manual clamping mechanism, depending on the model supported by a pneumatic cylinder, provides a constant and very high clamping force, which prevents lateral leakage of water through the sample.

Another interesting new feature is the completely new user interface (touch-screen) with the different possibilities to evaluate and document the results: The FX 3000 HYDROTESTER IV can be integrated into a network, if desired via Wi-Fi, and the internal memory of the instrument can be accessed, and a comprehensive test report can be generated, from any PC within the network, using the internal local web server of the instrument and any web browser in the PC. Furthermore, all style information, test parameters, and results can be centrally managed from the network. The FX 3000 HYDROTESTER IV complies with many national and international Standard Test Methods.
