Determination of Moisture Content in Textile Material

Moisture Content


Moisture Content in Textile


APPARATUS                                 

  •  Drying oven (at 105°C ±3°C)
  •  Weighing balance
  •  Weighing bottle

                                                                                                                                            

PEOCEDURE 

  • Condition the sample to moisture equilibrium in standard atmosphere temperature 27±2 o C and HR 65± 2 %.for 24 hour.
  • Take  the test specimen weigh 3 g accurately in clean and dry tared weighing bottle.
  • Place the weighing bottle containing the test specimen in drying oven.
  • Dry the specimen at 105°C ± 3°C to constant mass.

CALCULATION:

            Moisture content, ( % ) =  ( A - B ) *100 / A

       Where

  • A – Original mass in g of test specimen and
  • B – Oven dry mass in g for test specimen
