Thermal Water Vapor Resistance Tester


DW259A Thermal Water Vapor Resistance Tester


DW259A Thermal Water Vapor Resistance Tester is often referred to as "skin model" to produce accurate, repeatable measurements of thermal resistance and water vapor resistance of textiles, fabrics, films, coatings, foams and leather including multilayer assemblies, such as clothing, quilts, sleeping bags, upholstery and similar textile or textile-like products under steady-state conditions.

The specimens to be tested is placed on an electronically heated porous plate with conditioned air ducted to flow across and parallel to its upper surface.

Thermal resistance(Rct): a quantity specific to textile materials or composites which determine the dry heat flux across a given area in response to a steady applied temperature gradient, expressed in square meters kelvin per watt.


Tm: the temperature of the measuring unit, in degree Celsius;

Ta: the air temperature in the test enclosure, in degree Celsius;

A: the area of the measuring unit, in square meters;

H: the heating power supplied to the measuring unit, in watts;

ΔHc: the correction term for heating power;

Water vapor resistance(Ret): a quantity specific to textile materials or composites which determines the "latent" evaporative heat flux across a given area in response to a steady applied water-vapor pressure gradient, expressed in square meters pascal per watt.


Pm: the saturation water-vapour partial pressure, in pascals, on the surface of the measuring unit at temperature Tm;

Pa: the water-vapor partial pressure of the air in the test enclosure at temperature Ta;

A: the area of the measuring unit, in square meters;

H: the heating power supplied to the measuring unit, in watts;

ΔHe: the correction term for heating power for the measurement of water-vapor resistance Ret;

Water-vapor permeability index, imt: ratio of thermal and water-vapor resistance;


S equals to 60Pa/k;

Water vapor permeability, Wd: characteristic of a textile material or composite;

Wd= 1/(Ret*ФTm);

ФTm: the latent heat of vaporization of water at the temperature Tm of the measuring unit;

For example, When Tm=35℃, ФTm=0.672W·h/g.

l        Use a large touch panel (OMRON,Japan) to display and a microcomputer to control and deal with data automatically;

2        Display measuring results and dynamic curves;

3       In-built programmable testing programs, meeting requirements of related GB/T, ISO standards;

4        With lateral and lower thermal guard rings;

5        Copper test plate and guards with ultra-stable resistance wire heating for uniform heat flux;

The coefficient of radiation of the test plate surface is greater than 0.4, measured at 20℃, between the wavelengths 8 μm to 14 μm, with the primary beam perpendicular to the plate surface and the reflection hemispherical.

6        Use a step motor to move the test plate and thermal guards up or down, stably and accurately;

7       Variable speed fans and air velocity sensor;

8        Use a closed loop control system to supply water automatically and precisely;

9        Use PLC as central control system and an closed loop control system to control temperature and humidity automatically;

l0        Use the surface evaporation method to produce water vapor from saturated steam;

11       Sweating guarded hotplate system is compactly designed so it easily fits into climate-controlled chamber. If available, it can be moved out of the existing climate-controlled chamber and the chamber can be replaced;
