Single Yarn Twist tester

The yarn has enough tensile strength to endure the pressure of fabric preparation and manufacture. The key function of twist is to provide consistency to the yarn i.e. twirl providing potency to the yarn. The consistency arises many times from the twirls which  compress the fibers together as the stretching forces are applied and thus forms a friction between adjacent fibers. The laboratory equipment used for determination of twirls of a yarn is known as a Twist Tester.

A specially designed Single Yarn Twist Tester by Presto is a highly beneficial instrument used to check the twists in a single yarn. The properties of a yarn and the strength of a yarn depends on the amount of twists provided to it. Thus, accurate determination of this factor is quite important to assess the superiority of any yarn. The amount of twist provided to a yarn is determined by twisting a recognized length of yarn and finding the figure of rotations of one of its ends to the other which helps to remove the twists completely.
