SPECIAL NOTE: EFFECTIVE 1-JAN-2015 MODEL 295 HAS BEEN DISCONTINED. THE SAME CONFIGURATION CAN NOW BE MADE BY PURCHASING MODEL 290 AND ADDING THE ADVANCED STAGE UPGRADE KIT.
The ramé-hart Model 295 Automated Goniometer / Tensiometer is identical to Model 290 except that the stage is upgraded to the Advanced 3-axis Stage. The Advanced Stage permits fine and coarse vertical adjustment and has a modular leveling stage with support for the optional Environmental Chamber (p/n 100-07) and Temperature Controller (p/n 100-50). Included with this system is the Automated Tilting Base and Automated Dispensing System.
Model 295 includes the high-speed U1 Series digital camera which operates at 100 fps. The fiber optic illuminator provides adjustable backlighting and each system ships with a PC and LCD to make it a complete turn-key ready-to-use instrument.
Add the optional Oscillator to measure surface dilatational elasticity or the Environmental Fixture to measure interfacial tension. Other options include the film clamps, 4" diameter wafer support, custom fixtures and specimen support options.
With DROPimage Advanced software, results can be logged and reports can be generated using myriad options. Images can be saved and high speed measurements can be taken real time at 100 frames per second.
If you need a robust automated system that is powerful yet user-friendly, the Model 295 is well-suited for a wide array of contact angle, surface energy, surface tension, interfacial tension, wetting, roughness, absorption, spreading, cleanliness, and surface heterogeneity and characterization applications. Add the optional Environmental Chamber for working at elevated temperatures.
Every study requires capacity and flexibility. This system is popular in research environments where a demanding system with a powerful suite of hardware and software tools permits the discovery of many quantitative surface characterizations with a high degree of automation and repeatability.
