The UEC "Water Absorption Tester"(Suction Height) determines the “Capillary Rise" in the un-sized Paper such as Blotting Paper and other relatively "High Water Absorbency," by "Klemm Method".
The Test Results are obtained through the capillary rise (in mm.) of water in the strips of test specimen, which are suspended vertically in a Water filled vessel with their Lower end immersed in the water. The amount of water absorbed and risen in the specimens is read from the scale and time to be noted.
By the same method, absorption characteristics of other liquids, such as Oil, Ink etc. can also be measured.
