Bubble Pressure Tensiometer – BP100
Analysis of surfactant solutions for dynamic processes
Our Bubble Pressure Tensiometer – BP100 measures dynamic surface tension with high accuracy. It reliably analyses the mobility of surfactants, thus enabling high-speed processes such as spraying, coating, printing and cleaning to be optimized.
Analysis of surfactants for high-speed processes
Our BP100 measures the behavior of a surfactant over a wide speed range as part of a single, fully automatic measuring process. This enables you to find out how quickly a surfactant acts and when the required surface tension has been reached. In this way, the BP100 assists in the development, selection and dosing of surfactants for optimum speed.
Optional disposable capillaries simplify the investigation of contaminating or solidifying liquids such as inks or varnishes, and save cleaning. Thermal process conditions at temperatures between ‑10 and 130 °C can be simulated to enable the results to be transferred to large-scale situations in the best possible manner.
When used in research, the BP100 helps to characterize the mobility of surfactants by means of such substance parameters as the adsorption coefficient and diffusion coefficient. This provides a scientific picture of the substances used, which can be used to help specifically model products containing surfactants.
