BS ISO 2648:2020 pdf download.Wool — Determination of fibre length distribution parameters — Capacitance method
1  Scope
This document specifies a method for the determination of fibre length distribution parameters (principally mean length, expressed as Hauteur or Barbe, and the coefficient of variation of the measurement) on slivers and rovings made from combed wool or combed synthetic fibres.
As the fibres of different chemical structure have different di-electric values, the method is not directly applicable to slivers made up of a blend of wool/synthetic fibres.

3.1 Hauteur
mean cross-section biased length of the test specimen
Note 1 to entry: It is expressed in millimetres (mm).
3.2 Barbe
mean weight-biased length of the test specimen
Note 1 to entry: It is expressed in millimetres (mm).
Note 2 to entry: Only Hauteur is certifiable.
3.3 total sample
total of the laboratory samples (3.4) taken to represent the lot

of the fibres provides for a detailed examination of the local mass from the end of the sample up to the line of the common origin of the fibres. A carriage automatically carries the test specimen at a constant speed between the electrodes of the measuring condenser, or conversely the condenser moves over the test specimen.
5.1.3  Recorder.
In the analogue system, the record is a galvanometric recorder, which automatically traces the cumulative Hauteur diagram on squared paper during measurement. In the digital system, the data are captured by a computer which is capable of outputting the results to either the screen or to a printer. The diagram ordinate gives the percentage of fibres (biased by cross- section) of length greater than the length indicated on the corresponding abscissa. (The percentage by cross-section is very close to the percentage by number).
