PGX+ contact angle analyser - Pocket Goniometer
The PGX+ Pocket Goniometer, measures contact angle (dynamic and static), surface tension, and surface energy. According to the size that is set, the PGX+ makes a drop in μl. That drop is automatically released and 80 images per second are made. The instrument can be used for paper & board, solar cell panels, windshields, metal cylinders and similar surfaces. For most tests deionized water is used. However using other liquids is also possible.
The PGX+ is the ideal instrument to perform dynamic tests like absorption tests. During a test, the apparatus is connected to the computer. Special software gives an accessible overview of the possible tests, giving the operator full control. Droplet size, method of deposit, start delay, and sample rate are just some of the adjustable parameters.
After the test; test data are immediately transferred to the computer. Pictures and data can be stored and analyzed. This direct feedback allows for quickly adjusting the test set-up. Adjustments to improve the results can be made instantly. The test results can provide insight into the level of contamination, adhesion, surface energy, and printability of a surface.
