Contact Angle Meter
with Rotatable Substrate Holder
& Automated Dispenser
Model: HO-IAD-CAM-01A

Holmarc’s Contact angle meter Model no: HO-IAD-CAM-01A is an instrument for research as well as industrial application with motorized syringe pump for precise dispensing and with camera interface for measuring contact angle of liquids on solid. Video capturing and video image processing features are included in Holmarc Contact angle analysis software.

State-of-the-art optics, precise opto-mechanics, high-resolution CMOS detector and associated electronics used in our instrument guarantee stable and accurate measurements. The illumination intensity of the back light LED can be controlled using the software. The flow rate and volume to be dispensed can be controlled from the software. Three chromatographic syringes with 50 micro litre, 100 micro litre and 250 micro litre capacity are supplied along with the equipment. Standard off the shelf syringes can be integrated from 0.4 to 20 ml, from any manufacturer. The equipment is compatible with glass, plastic and SS syringes.

Contact angle is the angle formed by a liquid at the phase boundary where a liquid, gas and solid intersect. The shape of the drop is controlled by the three forces of interfacial tension. Static Angle and Advancing Angle are quantitative measures of the wetting of a solid by the liquid, but they can also be used as a quality control measure in surface treatments and surface cleanliness. Receding Angle is a quantitative measure of the adhesion of a solid to a liquid.
