Revolutionary dosing technique: Liquid Needle

The Liquid Needle dosing method is a fast and exactly reproducible way of placing drops on solid surfaces with minimum kinetic energy using a very thin jet of liquid instead of a solid needle. Dosing can be carried out much faster with the Liquid Needle compared to a solid needle, with the extra benefit of user-independent dosing process. Furthermore, dosing drops on very hydrophobic samples is easier because the drop does not have to detach from a solid needle.

The validity of the Liquid Needle method was proven in a thorough scientific study in which contact angles were measured on abroad range of samples.

Improve your coating liquid: Monitor the wetting agent content in electroplating baths

Capture the surfactant content of your coating or etching bath within seconds using surface tension with our Bubble Pressure Tensiometer – BPT Mobile.

The quality inspector using the BPT Mobile knows immediately whether the bath is okay thanks to an ad-hoc evaluation. Moreover, for pro-active adjustment of the bath, it shows the change of results over time.

The instrument, which is independent from the grid or a computer, has a touch display that makes using it as intuitive as a smartphone. It lies well in the hand and is especially easy and safe to operate thanks to the large-sized interface. Programmed measurement templates and the fact that the instrument is insensitive to changing immersion depths provide for user-independent quality control.

Optimize wettability: Measure the quality of pretreated and coated parts

Determine the wettability of your pretreated or coated material in no time at all using our Mobile Surface Analyzer – MSA with its Liquid Needle dosing technology.

The Liquid Needle turns the once laborious contact angle technique into an ultra-fast quality control method. The MSA uses it to measure the surface free energy (SFE), which is a perfect indicator for the wettability of the surface by aqueous or organic liquids and far more reliable than test inks. Measurements using templates and automated dosing of test liquids ensure operator-independent results, which can be automatically evaluated using predefined limits.

Our MSA analyzes samples of any size, such as automobile bodies. It provides accurate values even for vertical, overhead, and slightly convex samples. The handy instrument can also detect residues of cleaning agents and is capable of doing 1,000 material tests per cartridge charge.
