This device measures how much liquid a core can absorb at various flow
rates, how much is retained when pressure is applied and how much collapse
occurs. Testing variables include pad density, type and amount of
superabsorbent, thermal bonding parameters, etc.
The most recent addition to the MTS Testing System, the Dynamic Acquisition
Tester evaluates in real time how well liquids get into the absorbent core
at any flow rate. This test generates precise data for adjusting
absorbent core density, acquisition layer construction and coverstock
systems to optimize liquid penetration. This device was developed to
research new generations of ultrathin diapers and pads for the high-tech
products of tomorrow.
Used for testing surface qualities of coverstocks as well as the penetration
of liquid into finished products.
This device is used for determining the rewet and surface dryness
of final products or new materials and for improving coverstock
performance for better skin care.

Demand Wettability Tester
Useful for assessing liquid take-up properties of pads made of various
fibers and superabsorbents. The demand Wettability tester can compare
the rates and absorbent capacities of various fluff pulps, superabsorbents,
proposed new materials and absorbent cores at different densities.
and Wicking Testers.
Body-shaped, horizontal and vertical liquid spreading testers use
electronics to measure how well the pad accepts
and moves liquid. Both spreading speed and total amount of
liquid actually moved can be determined. The horizontal
tester is especially useful for studying variable density diaper
designs. Vertical wicking is used to measure quality of fluff

Kamas Laboratory Hammermill (MTS Laboratory in-house testing only)
In addition to its ability to determine defibration energy costs of various
materials, the Kamas Laboratory Hammermill produces prototype pad samples of
different sizes, shapes and SAP compositions for testing new concepts.
NEW IN 2007! The MTS Nit Counter, used in conjunction with the Kamas Mill and MTS TESTING
System, provides further details of pulp quality obtained from processing
pulps under various commercial equipment settings and
