Determining optimum twist can have a critical effect on the physical characteristics of yarns. Yarns with a low twist count are capable or producing a yarn with increased softness for knitting and warmth. Increasing twist count can provide additional tensile strength. However, maximum tensile strength can decrease if the twist angle is greater than the desired amount.
The model ETT Electronic Twist Tester by Brustio meets applicable International Standards for measuring both the untwist/retwist method and yarn twist method by direct rotational counting. ETT instrument software allows the selection of both twist methods, in addition the software reports sample statistics including average, standard deviation, maximum and minimum. Result data can also be printed or sent to a PC.
The ETT Electronic Twist Tester is a motorized unit consisting of two clamps. One clamp is adjustable for varying sample length before and during a test and a second clamp is rotated in either direction to measure counts.
