Absorption tester

This absorbency testing system from Thwing-Albert is ideal for research and development as well as quality control applications.Its small size and rugged design make it suitable for both the laboratory and the production floor. It is a table top instrument that measures the absorption/desorption rate and total capacity of absorbent materials in real-time. Absorption is measured based on time and the amount of fluid displaced from a fluid reservoir.
The desorption test can be run after the absorption test and measures the amount of fluid that is removed from the sample.
