Process Tensiometer (Kruss K-12)

The K-12 is used for measuring surface and interfacial tensions of liquids. Surface and interfacial tension measurements allow us to determine surface concentration of surfactant at the various types of interfaces (solid-liquid, solid-vapour and liquid-vapour). With proper design of sampling cells, K-12 also allows us to determine wettability of solid particles by determining liquid penetration kinetics and analysis of the results using Washburn equation.
