This porosimeter has been developed and is manufactured in Switzerland by JDC Electronic SA following a very strong demand from paragliding manufacturers, mainly for safety reasons. This instrument has quickly become the reference to measure porosity.
Fields of application
Quick test of porosity, for example in the manufacture of paragliders, hot-air balloons, spinnakers, etc.
Measures the degradation of a fabric to warn the user about safety or performance issues.
Assessment and control of used equipment.
Tissue study in the laboratory.
The porosimeter is notably used by
Free flight schools
Manufacturers of paragliders
- Time in seconds
Formula to convert porosimeter MK2 values in
|Industry standard n°1||(liter per m2 per min) (pressure of 200 mm of water)
5400 / time in seconds
(divide 5400 by the time displayed on the MK2)
|Industry standard n°2||(cm3 per cm2 per sec) (pressure of 200 mm of water)
9 / time in seconds
(diviser 9 by the time displayed on the MK2)
