Carpet Cleanability Analyzer
Objective assessment of the Carpet Cleanability

The “Carpet Cleanability Analyzer” measurement system has been developed to analyze and compare the cleanability of different carpet surfaces. Per measuring cycle, three carpet samples soiled with strongly adhering particles, such as grains of sand or wool fibers, are cleaned by a robot-guided suction arm with controlled pressure. The measurement system calculates the cleanability and dirt resistance of the respective carpet technology based on the residue on the carpet surface and the weight difference of the samples.
