Flow Through Spout Tester

Standardized flow measurement

Flow Through Spout Tester for sport closures 

The Spout Flow Meter is a means for comparing (and measuring) the flow of resistance in “sport closures”. 

Operation: 

  • As a parameter for flow properties, the standardized test includes the use of the Spout Flow Meter yields, 
  • The time needed for the free outflow is 1 liter of water from a vertically mounted plastic pipe with an internal diameter of 74 mm through the sport closure (spout down) with a minimum water level of 150 mm above the bottom end of the closed spout.
  • Flow time is measured manually, using a stop watch
