How Martindale Abrasion cum Pilling Tester works?

The Abrasion of the fabric can be tested through two methods.

Number of rubs to end point:  


4 specimens of each sample can be tested in each of the specimen holder of the machine.

Inspect the specimens without removing them from the holders at regular intervals and note the number of rubs when at least two threads are broken.

This should be assessed independently for each specimen and the specimens removed when they reach end point.  


Average weight loss  


Abrade two specimens to end points as in above case and then abrade further pairs of specimens.

Weight all the specimens before and after abrasion and plot a graph of weight loss against the number of rubs.

Draw a line through the points and determine the rate of weight loss in mg per 1000 rubs if reasonably linear.


The degree of pill formation can be visually assessed by the set of photographic rating standards available for comparing the tested specimen.


The Martindale Abrasion cum Pilling Tester confirms with the international standards and comes under warranty. All this help provide customer satisfaction that promotes long term customer relationship which is our ultimate objective at B-Tex Engineering. 


Minimum 10 years part availability assurance from the date of Invoice.

Digital Pilling Tester

Digital Pilling Tester is used to check the pilling resistance of the fabric.
Digital Pilling Tester manufactured by B-Tex Engineering is of fine quality and gives optimum performance. Pilling is a fabric surface fault characterized by little pills of entangled fibres clinging to the surface. Pills are formed during wearing or washing by the entanglement of the loose fibres, which protrude from fabric surface. To determine the tendency to form pills, test specimens taken from the fabric sample are rubbed against each other under controlled conditions.


Features of Digital Pilling Tester:

  • Consists of two wooden cubical Boxes with inside surfaces lined with special standard cork sheet and outside surfaces beautifully laminated.
  • Consists of geared motor which rotates the boxes about their central axis
  • Pre-set Digital Counter stops the motor automatically after the desired number of revolutions
  • Can be used for all types of fabric and weave patterns.
  • Eliminates subjective assessment.
  • More accurate.
  • User friendly.
  • Adopted universal standard testing procedure.

Specifications of Digital Pilling Tester:


Size of Wooden Boxes (Inside): 235 x 235 x 235 mm
Thickness of Cork Lining: 3.2 mm (As per standards)
Speed of Rotation of Boxes: 30 r.p.m. for snagging & 60 r.p.m. for pilling
Size of Test Specimen: 12.5 ´12.5 cm² 
Size of Rubber Tubes: f 32mm (OD) x f 25mm(ID) x 140mm(L) (16 Tubes)
Motor: 1/8 H.P. Single Phase geared motor 220V AC
Counter: 5 DIGITS DIGITAL Pre-Set type counter
Overall Dimensions of the Unit: 813 (W) x 482 (D) x 508 mm (H)
Net weight : 35 kg (77 lbs.)  


How Digital Pilling Tester works?

  • The very first step is to clean the boxes thoroughly.
  • Then place four mounted test specimens in each box and close the boxes.
  • Later set the pre-set counter at 18000 with the help of the Thumb Wheel setting provided on the Digital Counter.
  • Press the start button. The machine would stop automatically after 18000 revolutions.
  • Now, finally take the specimens and compare them with the photographic rating standards.

Digital Pilling Tester from B-Tex Engineering is covered under warranty. All this help provide customer satisfaction that promotes long term customer relationship which is our ultimate objective at B-Tex Engineering.
