Attension Theta Flex enables you to choose the level of automation and the advanced functionalities that you need for your applications. With the modular design and an extensive range of modules and accessories you have room to upgrade or change the instrument as your needs evolve. Below is a selection of additional modules and accessories. For a complete list, see the Theta Flex modules and accessories brochure.
Theta Flex can be combined with the unique 3D Topography module that takes the wettability and adhesion analysis into a completely new level by measuring both contact angle and surface roughness of the sample in a single measurement. Distinguish the effect of roughness on contact angle and surface free energy. Roughness measured with an external profilometer can also be entered.
The High Pressure Chamber is designed for wettability research within enhanced oil recovery and enables measurements at pressures up to 400 bars and temperatures up to 200°C. Integrated chamber piston and sample port are optimized for the best usability and versatility.
Oscillates drop volume for interfacial rheology studies.
Dispensing of picoliter-sized droplets for small sample areas and inkjet applications.
For fully automatic dynamic contact angle measurements by the tilted drop method.
To control the measurement environment including the temperature.
