Sensadyne Fluid Surface Tensionmeter

Model PC500-LV Fully Automated High Performance

Fluid Surface Tensionmeter

The PC500-LV uses a patented Maximum Bubble Pressure, Viscosity Compensated method for measuring both Dynamic & Static Surface Tension. This method fully meets ASTM Method D 3825-90, with no correction factors.

All measurements are calibrated against known standards. The method is completely independent of probe depth and ambient pressure, and unaffected by foaming or surface contamination.
