About Mobile Contact Angle Meter – SurfaSpector

The SITA SurfaSpector is an easy to use non-destructive, mobile contact angle meter for testing wettability and cleanliness on a range of materials including plastic, metal, ceramic and glass surfaces.

Supplied in a carry case, this hand-held instrument is an ideal industrial tool for at line measurements on a range of applications:

  • quality assurance after parts cleaning process
  • wettability inspection
  • testing of surface activation (e.g. after plasma/corona treatment).

The instrument works on the contact angle method where a known volume drop of water is precisely placed on the surface of the material by an automatic dosing unit on the sensor head.  Using a high resolution camera the drop shape is determined and the contact angle calculated and logged.  Results are viewed on the 5″ touchscreen operating unit which can also be transferred to PC for advanced measurement analysis and reporting via the optional SurfaceLog software.

Features & Benefits
