Fast evaluation of surface wettability in manufacturing processes by measuring the contact angle

The SITA SurfaSpector is a new hand-held measuring device for testing the wettability of metal, glass and plastic surfaces, e.g. after surface treatment or cleaning.

The device combines an objective measurement with simple handling and enables a fast evaluation of the surface.

• Wettability inspection

• Testing of surface activation, e.g. after a plasma treatment
and many more applications in surface analysis

Measuring principle

A drop of water is precisely placed at the surface by an automatic dosing unit. The drop is illuminated from the side. A shadow of the drop is projected onto an inclined measuring surface. The projection is recorded from above by a high resolution camera and the picture is corrected for perspective. The drop shape is determined and the contact angle calculated. The lower the contact angle, the higher the wettability.
