Historically, the textiles industry has greatly contributed to economic development increasing trade volume and creating jobs. The ready-made garments industry is particularly important. This industry plays a significant role in all aspects of human life.

The textiles industry plays a major role in the development of national economies too. It is subject to fierce competition stimulated by technological advances. For manufacturers to have a significant market share in global terms, their products must be of sufficiently high quality. In the textiles industry, it is important to choose the right raw materials to obtain the right features for both yarns and fabrics and to properly conduct quality control tests on the finished product. In this context, test equipment for textiles are used to test the quality and strength of products.

Test equipment for textiles constitute a significant part of the production process for the role they play in testing the quality of the products. They facilitate the textile manufacturers’ job. Test equipment for textiles play an active role in conducting tests on textile products to test such features as tearing and breaking strength, colour fastness, puncture and bursting strength, fire resistance, water permeability. tensile strength etc..

Find below explanations on some of the test equipment offered by DVT DEVOTRANS for the textiles industry.


DVT DEVOTRANS produces 3 separate bursting strength testers for the textile and leather industries, including DVT TP DLC, manufactured in accordance with the standards ASTM D 3786 and TS 393 EN ISO 13938/1. It determines the force at the moment of bursting under pressure using the hydraulic balloon method.

TEXTILE BURSTING STRENGTH TESTERThe device is equipped with a pneumatic sample holding unit and a unit measuring the height before the bursting. Automatic volume calculation is another feature of this device.

The adjustable clamping pressure prevents the sample from being damaged. The device stops automatically once the bursting has taken place. A digital screen displays the bursting force.

The device can also receive additional features on an optional basis. For more information, please click the name of the device.


Manufactured in accordance with the standards EN ISO 6940, TST 5775 EN ISO 6940, TST EN ISO 15025, UL 94 and TS EN ISO 6941, DVT YAN G is used to determine the protection limits of protective clothing and textile fabrics against heat and flame.

FIRE RESISTANCE TESTERIt is used to determine the flammability of textile fabrics or industrial products consisting of a single or multiple components when exposed to a given small amount of flame.

Below are the technical features of this device:

  • Amount of combustion is measured according to time.
  • It determined, if the sample is within the limits of combustion.
  • Flame can be directed to the sample in various angles,
  • Combustion and going out times are observed separately,
  • Test duration can be set with 0.1 sec. precision.


Manufactured in accordance with the standards ISO 811,TS 257, TS 257 EN ISO 20811 (SG T), DIN 52 123, TS 1974/1974 EN 1734, TS EN 1928 and TS EN 1931, DVT SGT DLC is used to determine the water-tightness of textiles or coated textiles under given amounts of pressure.

It determines under which pressure fabrics, rubber- or plastic-coated fabrics, shoes, boots etc. will let water in.
