Measures both upward and downward interfacial tensions
- Conforms to ASTM D 971, D 1331, D 1417 and D 1590
- Low friction pivot-and-jewel bearings
Graduations on scales read in both directions on their corresponding verniers to indicate whether the measured force is upward or downward. A platinum iridium ring suspends from a vertical limb of an articulated parallelogram, a corner of which clamps on to a fine torsion wire. A jaw-type clamp holds parallelogram in place while ring is being installed or removed. Includes one tensiometer ring (9149G10) and one torsion wire.
NOTE: prices may vary due to frequent changes in the cost of platinum.
