Tensiometer Kruss K10T performs precision automatic measurements of surface tension of liquids, using classic Wilhelmy plate and Du Nouy ring methods. It is also possible to probe interfacial tension between two liquids using Du Nouy ring method. Measurements at different sample temperatures can be used to calculate surface tension temperature coefficient.


This is an accordion element with a series of buttons that open and close related content panels.
