SDL Atlas has introduced a redesign to the HydroPro Hydrostatic head tester. The HydroPro tests the water resistance to fabrics, determining the waterproof properties of fabrics such as canvas, coated fabrics, hood fabric, tarpaulin, rain-proof fabrics and geotextiles. SDL Atlas is a supplier of textile testing equipment and laboratory products in the US.

The redesign ensures that the powerful and efficient HydroPro is the best value Hydrostatic head tester available. New features of the HydroPro include video recording and image capture that show real time pressure for review after testing via computer software. It offers testing pressure up to 5 bar. It also comes with a new pneumatic sample clamping to avoid slippage and leakage. The fast test function allows users to rapidly determine a failure point and perform other tasks during 80 per cent of the standard test time. An alarm indicates fail pressure is close, SDL Atlas said in a media statement.

The tester comes with automatic water filling and water level detecting. It has a full colour touch screen controller with preloaded routines for popular standards and custom programmes. It connects via Wi-Fi to an exclusive RemoteAccess App which alerts the operator when the test is 80 per cent complete. The tester is capable of pore size test with optional fixture for BS 3321. It is also capable of blood penetration tests with optional fixtures for ASTM F1670, BS ISO 13994, and ISO 16603.
