Product Description

Contact Angle Meter

Contact Angle Meter with Rotatable Substrate Holder & Automated Dispenser Model No: HO-IAD-CAM-01A

Contact angle meter Model no: HO-IAD-CAM-01A is an instrument for research as well as industrial application with Motorized syringe pump for precise dispensing and with CCD interface for measuring contact angle of liquids on solid surfaces. The surface over which contact angle is to be measured can be rotated through +/- 180 degree from its horizontal position for advanced contact angle study and to find out contact angle hysteresis. The equipment enables:

1. Static Contact Angle Measurement

The instrument uses sessile drop method which is the
standard method for quick and accurate wetting results for finding out Contact angles.

2. Dynamic Contact Angle Measurement

Dynamic measurements are made by utilizing the motorized syringe dispenser in the system. Flow rate of 1μl / m to 100 μl / hr is possible. Video capturing and video image processing feature included in Holmarc’s contact angle measurement software.

3. Advancing / Receding Angle measurement (Contact angle hysteresis)

To find out Contact angle hysteresis, the platform where the drop is placed can be tilted through an angle.
