The economy of bangladesh mainly depend on textile sector.There is a huge compition in

textle market.To stable in this market the quality of product must be ensure.For this reason
there is no alternative of quality test of product.Now a days it become a major part of
textile.There are various type of textile testing instrument for testing such as
spectrophotometer,color matching cabinent, pH meter, light fastnes tester etc. To taste by
those equipment it is necessary to know about those instrument and there testing mathod.

The Textile testing insttument those we have shown in national institute of

Textile Training Reaearch and Design (NITTRAD) are given below:

Machine Name: Spectrophotometer
Brand Name: GretagMacbeth
Model No: Color-Eye 7000A
Country of Origin: U.S.A

Fig: Spectrophotometer

It provides grey scale value in different methods, whiteness value and recipe formulation etc.
of colored or printed fabrics after dyeing and printing.

A spectrophotometer, one of the most useful physics lab equipment, is the combination of
two devices, a spectrometer and a photometer. Spectrometer is used for producing light of
any selected wavelength or color while a photometer is used for measuring the intensity of
light. The two devices are placed at either side of a cuvette filled with a liquid. Spectrometer
produces the light of desired wavelength and it passes through the tube and reaches
photometer that measures its intensity.

Color Matching Cabinet

Machine Name: Color Matching Cabinet
Brand Name: VeriVide
Model No:
CAC 60
Country of Origin: India

Fig: Color Matching Cabinet

fastness to light, washing and rubbing.

Colors appear differently under different lighting conditions. Use of a light booth to simulate
different lighting conditions helps to obtain objective color assessment, improves
communication and reduces product rejections influences. For general color evaluation of
small samples this cabinet offers the following benefits:

Comparison of standard and sample in a color-neutral environment

Easy to operate by using individual switches for each light source
Can be set up in minutes without any tools

This test measures the resistance to fading of dyed textiles when exposed to daylight. The
tested specimen is exposed for a certain time (12h, 20h, 24h, 36h etc or as customer demand)
under the light and compared the changes with the original unexposed specimen. These
changes are assessed by numerical expression which is made by blue light fastness scale.

after abrasion. The rubbing hammer of this crock meter is wrapped with dry or wet white
cotton cloth, and then rubbed on the specimen clamped to the testing table ten times for 10
seconds. The cloth is then removed to evaluate the discolor level in comparison with a grayscale.

Machine Name: Perspirometer
Brand Name: James H.Heal & Co.Ltd.

Testing of textile material is very important for textile sector basically for a factory.Without
testing the quality cannot be ensure.In present market without quality the value of product is
less.To earn maximum profit from textile sector there is no alternative to ensure the quality of
textile materail.By doing this experimet we have known about different textile testing
equipment.I hope that this will help me much inmy job field.
