Surface contact angle measurement

Surface contact angle measurement

This machine is designed to measure the surface contact angle of liquids as they sit on a flat or inclined surface. It is initially designed for flat surfaces however it can be used to approximate textile surfaces. It has the unique ability to capture multiple frames at a set rate so contact angle versus time can be established. Rate of wetting can also be determined.
