Put our expertise to work for your analysis

Whether used for quality assurance or scientific research, tensiometry is the key measurement technique for analyzing the surface and interfacial phenomena of liquids. In this KRÜSS seminar, we will share our knowledge in this field, introducing you to the theory and practice of all of the methods commonly used for characterizing liquid surfaces.

Understanding and measuring interfacial effects

By attending our seminar, you will gain a more in-depth understanding of surface tension (SFT) and interfacial tension (IFT). You will also familiarize yourself with mechanisms of surfactant action and learn more about characterizing surfactants. We will use concrete examples to illustrate the significance of surface tension in fast technical processes and show you how to apply static and dynamic analytical methods.

We will provide practical demonstrations of the methods covered on our own instruments:

  • Fully automated SFT, IFT and critical micelle concentration (CMC) determinations
  • Spinning drop method (for very low IFT)
  • Bubble pressure method (dynamic SFT)
  • Drop volume method (dynamic IFT)
  • Pendant drop method (optical SFT and IFT measurement on a drop)

This event is a one-day seminar for no more than 30 participants. The practical portion of the seminar is conducted in smaller groups.
