- With protocol software or scientific evaluation tool
Really simple: contact angle with EasyDrop
KRUSS EasyDrop Standard, USB and Smart: with these three instruments in the new KRÜSS product range you can now measure contact angles and surface free energy as quickly and simply as never before. The trio offers everything required for both routine lab work and on-site measurements. Newcomers to the measuring techniques for wetting processes can rapidly achieve results without needing a long familiarization period. Professionals can use the sophisticated analytical tools for research at a high scientific level. The chiefly manual components ensure that EasyDrop remains favorably priced despite its high performance level.
The manual sample table moves the sample to the right position in only a few seconds. Single or double dosing deposits the drop on the surface in no time at all. The regulable illumination and image sharpness together with the 6-fold zoom ensure optimal drop presentation. The high-quality camera records the digital image and allows perfect drop shape analysis. The contact angle and surface free energy can be read off directly or can be protocolled and calculated by time-proven KRÜSS software products.
With the KRUSS EasyDrop you can also benefit from the modularity of KRÜSS products: the instrument can be extended or converted at any time – for example with a thermostat chamber or a different dosing unit.
Classical: EasyDrop Standard
The EasyDrop Standard is the cost-efficient access to scientific working. Equipped with either manual or computer-controlled single dosing, the EasyDrop Standard is the all-rounder of the EasyDrop line. All standard drop shape analysis methods and all the usual models for calculating the surface free energy are available. Surface and interfacial tension measurements by the pendant drop method round off the program.
Flexible: EasyDrop USB
Measurements on site and with a laptop – no problem with EasyDrop USB. The standard interface makes the framegrabber superfluous and allows the instrument to be set up rapidly and without any complications. The low weight of the EasyDrop contributes to its high degree of flexibility. The key is a new type of double-dosing system (patent rights pending); this allows measurements to be made with two standard liquids without having to change syringes. On the software side the whole range of KRÜSS evaluation methods for contact angle and surface free energy measurements is available. The pendant drop method is included in the program as a matter of course.
Independent: EasyDrop Smart
The EasyDrop Smart works with an intelligent camera that already includes the know-how for contact angle measurements. The firmware contains various evaluation methods for contact angle measurements and 3 standard methods for calculating the surface free energy. It is ideal for quality control: a well-laid-out display with integral evaluation menu makes the instrument fully independent from a computer and collects the data in a voluminous database. If you still want to have your results processed by a computer then a datalogger is available; output on a protocol printer is also possible without any problems. The EasyDrop Smart also uses the new type of double-dosing system – this means smooth measurements without continually having to change syringes.
The KRUSS EasyDrop Smart simplifies quality control by means of variable display colours.
