Description

The Drop shape analysis (DSA10, Krüss) at the LCN is a useful tool for determining the surface properties of solids and liquids using single or pendant drops respectively. The sessile mode is a contact angle technique used to quantitatively measure the wetting of a solid by a liquid. The contact  angle is determined by drawing a tangent at the contact  where the liquid and the solid intersect. The pendant mode allows the measurement of the surface and interfacial tensions of liquids.

Specification

Features of the DSA10 include:

Evaluation of the digitised drop image Measurement of the advancing and retreating contact angles by changing the drop volume Determination of the surface energy of a solid Built-in databases Zoom lens to optimise image size DSA1 software for fully automatic contact angle and surface tension measurements

Item ID #2397.
