Surface tension testing using a duNouy platinum ring. Testing is run per ASTM D1331. We will provide interfacial tension numbers on a variety of fluids.
The Fisher Scientific Tensiomat provides room temperature testing of the interfacial tension of liquids.
Testing requires 200ml of fluid. To perform density correction, requester needs to provide a density, or have a density test performed.
The submitter is responsible for appropriate sampling and sample handling to avoid contamination which can invalidate results.
In most cases we can provide a verbal answer in 1 to 2 days after sample receipt. We then provide a signed hardcopy report of the analysis.
Baere will provide surface tension tests on a per test basis of $140 each.
If a test plan or interpretation of results is requested, a flat fee contract can be prepared or a straight per hour rate of $260/hour with a do not exceed value is available.
