Single Yarn Twist Tester

In Textile manufacturing industries, single yarn twist tester is used to determine the strength of a yarn. It helps in deciding whether the yarn can bear the loads of various textile processes. The instrument is ideal to test tensile strength, reliability and uniformity


The thread or yarn has sufficient tensile strength that can bear the pressure of different production processes at the time of manufacturing, The primary function of twist is to offer uniformity and reliability to the yarn i.e. twist offering strength to the yarn. This reliability rises, many times from the twists which pack the fibers together as the stretch forces are applied and hence outline an abrasion between two adjacent fibers. The testing instrument used to measure these twists of yarn is known as Twist Tester. The specially designed model, is used to check the number of twists and twirls in a single yarn. Various properties of a yarn and its strength depends on the number of twirls provided to it.

Hence, it is necessary to accurately determine this factor to evaluate the superiority of a yarn. To measure the number of twists in a piece of yarn, twist a determined length of yarn and measure the number of rotations from one end to another that will help you to completely eradicate the twists. 


  • Offer highly accurate results.
  • Easy to maintain.
  • Provide safe and quick operations.
  • It has long service life.
  • The instrument comprises of 5 digits digital counter that easily records the number of twirls that can happen in a single yarn.
  • The instrument is provided with two dead weights 10 and 20 grams.
  • The entire machine is plated with bright chrome to ensure a corrosion resistant finish.
