The DCAT 25 from Dataphysics is a multifunctional instrument for dynamic contact angle measuring instrument and tension measurements. It’s capable of weight-based measurement of surface and interfacial tension, dynamic contact angles, critical micelle formation concentration, and adhesive force. The DCAT 25 features a high-precision electrodynamic compensation weighing system with automatic and manual calibration, a variable speed motor for height positioning of the sample vessel. It also features automatic crash protection, automatic coupling lock for the balance, a measurement camera, and intuitive control with the TP 50 touch screen control panel.
