TC 1
Manual ring / plate tensiometer

The LAUDA Scientific TC1 is a stand-alone, manual tensiometer for research, quality control and education. Wherever surface tension and interfacial tension measurements according to the Du-Noüy ring and Wilhelmy plate methods are needed – the TC1 is just doing that according to international standards. It is used in the field of transformer oils, in cleaning processes, in the beverage industry and in many other areas. Their precise load cells and robust construction make the TC1 a perfect match when an easy-to-use instrument with high precision is needed. The TC1 manual tensiometer with its measurement templates offers exactly that, along with an unmatched reproducibility and a robust design.


Special Features:

  • Wide measurement range up to 300 mN/m (0.01 mN/m resolution)
  • Automatic detection of the maximum force for accurate measurement
  • Automatic Zuidema and Waters correction for precise correction of Du-Noüy ring measurements
  • User-friendly due to an innovative measuring assistant including predefined standard methods
  • Intuitive touch-based graphical user interface with integrated user management including different user levels to meet GLP requirements
  • Optional temperature control without additional bench space requirements
