Kibron Optical Tensiometers for Contact Angle & Surface Tension Measurements – Practically Everywhere

Launching our new range of Optical Tensiometers for measurement of Contact Angle & Surface / Interfacial Tension using the Drop Shape Analysis method

Kibron Optical Tensiometer

Our family of Optical Tensiometers AquaDrop , AquaDrop Plus & EzDrop Plus provide powerful, yet cost effective solutions for optical tensiometry measurements & determination of surface free energy. Perfectly complementing our existing family of force tensiometers they provide users with a further insight into liquid-solid wetting interactions (on almost any surface type/size) as well as surface/interfacial tension measurements on micro-litre drop sizes & under special conditions. Please contact us for further information & pricing

A family of modular Instruments configured to your measurement needs

Modularity & flexibility are at the heart of our Optical Tensiometers so they can be configured to your measurement and budgetary needs, whilst still allowing for future expansion as needs change & grow. Our modular fixing system allows standard & user supplied optical stages & components to be easily supported on the instrument frame
