The Model 500 Advanced Goniometer / Tensiometer includes a vast array of capabilities. In addition to shipping with DROPimage Advanced, the Model 500 is capable of accepting every modular accessory available from ramé-hart. This permits the building of a sophisticated tool which can be optimized for specific applications and research environments.
Model 500 includes the U4 Series 520 frames/second SuperSpeed digital camera. DROPimage Advanced software is included as well. This powerful program calculates surface and interfacial tension using a standard PC. The method used is based on the Young-Laplace equation and the program has been designed to handle pendant, inverted pendant, sessile, and captive bubble drops. DROPimage Advanced is methods-based allowing full control over every aspect of the experiment allowing for sophisticated dynamic and time-dependant studies. Results include surface tension, interfacial tension, contact angle, surface energies of solids, drop dimensions, volume and surface area, as well as surface dilatational elasticity and viscosity. Full control over the Automated Dispensing System and the Automated Tilting Base accessories is integrated into the software allowing them to be controlled via discrete controls or via a methods-based experiment.
Add the Advanced Chamber with temperature and humidity control for the highest level of environment control. The standard Environmental Chamber and Environmental Fixture are also available options for Model 500. All chambers have temperature logging so your reports will include the precise chamber temperature at the time of each measurement.
If your requirements
call for a powerful and adaptable tool with the widest
range of modular options, then Model 500 is the best choice.
