The Wyzenbeek Tester is a four station abrasion device. It abrades the surface of textiles or leather to determine the amount of marring and wear of the surface finish.
Operation of the machine is simple. Each sample is held under measured tension and measured pressure. Securely fastened the samples are subjected to the abrasive material clamped on the oscillating drum operating underneath the samples. Cycle speed is adjusted with the variable speed control on the front panel. The number of test cycles desired is entered on the pre-set cycle counter on the front panel indicating when the test will be completed. A vacuum unit is built into the machine. Two slotted vacuum pipes are suspended over the abrasive drum. The large volume of air being sucked over the abrasive surface keeps it free from lint and dust during operation.
