Measure Key Chemical and Physical Properties

Textile, fiber, carpet and related analysis with Apex NIR measures several key properties in all stages of production. Our diverse range of applications have included textile production, processing, finished product quality and even recycling. Apex NIR analyzers can measure several key properties outlined below.

Whether using the Apex, our laboratory analyzer, or ApexPro, the online/in-process analyzer, Verum’s sensors provide the real time inline measurement of textiles, yarns, fibers, and more to control your process.  Measurements directly on the process allow for tight controls and optimization of processes, coatings, and treatments.
