August 17, 2006

The Hardy Integrity Tester is a mechanical device for the repetitive raising and dropping of disposable absorbent products in order to quantify the breaking strength of the absorbent core within the product. Developed by Disposables Consultancy Service, based in Dublin, Ireland, the line tests product in a dry condition or with a specific targeted wet area so that the dry and wet strengths of the product can be determined at different stages of saturation and is a reliable and consistent test device for the determination of a pad strength parameter in absorbent products such as diapers, underpads, shaped pads or sanitary napkins.
