Water Repellency Tester
TruRain is the definitive Bundesmann tester, an artificial rain shower testing instrument for determining the water repellency of textiles. It is designed with precision in mind, to reduce inconsistency and improve the accuracy and repeatability of results.
TruRain’s water circulation unit reduces operating costs by 83% and water consumption by 99%, making TruRain a more sustainable Bundesmann Tester.
An integrated, automated shower guard diverts the water flow before and after each test to keep the operator dry when inserting and removing the specimens.
The 300 evenly distributed nozzles, which produce rain drops for the test, are easy to clean and maintain. The nozzles can be primed, a process of forcing high pressure water through the system to ensure no blockages.
Our TestWise software is user friendly, automating the process of testing and alerting the user of when to grade the specimens based on the ISO standard.
Equipped with an innovative ‘Water Recirculation System’, TruRain is the only Bundesmann tester of its kind which reuses water during testing - resulting in significant cost savings and environmental benefits.
The traditional ‘Bundesmann’ water repellency test is the industry-wide acceptable method of providing artificial rainfall to simulate the process of rain in the natural environment, to determine the water repellency of different fabrics. However, this test method is not sustainable: the running costs for testing are high and so are the environmental impacts associated with it – waste, water use and energy consumption.
