Tensiometers are instruments used for conducting surface analysis on liquid substances. Typical applications Tensiometers perform include measuring surface tension, interfacial tension as well as liquid density and Lamella Length on some Tensiometer models. Some models can also perform other tasks including powder wettability and dynamic contact angle of a solid substrate. Depending on the types of information the operator is seeking to find one model may be more appropriate than the other.
To help prospective users evaluate and compare the different types of models available in the market we have prepared a reference document we call the:
"Tensiometer Selection Matrix"
This matrix is not necessarily brand specific as it was designed to help those seeking to compare capabilities and prices among popular manual Tensiometer models vs. popular Automatic or "digital" Tensiometer models.
