Hydrostatic head tester is a water proof msample-under-water-proof-testingachine ideal to test all types of fabric and water resistant materials able to analyze the water proof limits of textile material and technical textiles or the resistance to water penetration subjecting specimens to  a constant hydrostatic pressure increment

The types of samples that could be tested with Branca Hydrostatic head tester are all materials as e.g. technical texitles, fabrics, bonded and coated materials, membranes etc.

To establish the minimum hydrostatic pressure that induces the passage of water across a specimen of fabric and to determine the time under a known pressure increase.

Original test area is 100 cm2 (UNI20811), but it can be applied test area reductions to the original one in compliance with AFNOR Standards.

Branca hydrostatic head tester has a useful pneumatic closure with selectable switch on front panel that ensures the perfect water tightness of the specimen during the test running.
