Brief Description

Description :

In order to correctly grade a jute fiber, quantitative assessment of its strength is essential. The instruments available to quantitatively assess the jute fiber strength are neither user friendly nor portable for field assessment. The current innovation is a lightweight, inexpensive accurate jute bundle strength tester with a simple and rapid testing procedure. To suit the need of the farmers and jute industry, two variations of the instrument are developed. The manual-driven version of the instrument is less expensive & portable. The second version is motor-driven for quick and accurate strength estimation.
