Our High Pressure range of instruments have been designed to characterize foams or study interfaces within the most demanding experimental conditions.

Tracker™HTHP - high temperature and pressure 

Up to 200°C / 700 bar

TRACKER™ HTHP has been designed to characterize surface properties, measure superficial or interfacial tensions,contact angle and study interfacial rheology for most demanding applications.

TRACKER™ HTHP can measure under a temperature up to 200°C and a pressure up to 700 bar. High pressure cell’s design has been certified by CETIM (Centre Technique des Industries Mécaniques - www.cetim.fr)

The instrument is available in 3 versions: 200°C and 350 or 500 or 700 bar. TRACKER™ HTHP measures:

  • Liquid/Liquid, Liquid/Gas, Liquid/Solid interfaces tensions

  • Rising or pendant drop

  • Nonexplosive gas and Supercritical CO₂

  • Drop volume/Area regulation

  • viscoelastic modulus

  • Contact angle (advancing and receding)

Applications

  • Same applications as the single drop tensiometer

  • Supercritical CO₂

  • Petroleum, bitumen experiments

  • Smelt polymer

  • Contact angle under pressure

  • Compatible with methane

  • Pressure up to 100 bar (1,450 Psi)

  • Air, N₂, O₂, supercritical CO₂

The Foamscan HTHP is designed to measure the ability of a liquid to generate foam by sparging a gas through a liquid at high pressure and high temperature.

The foam is generated in stainless steel cell

Foam tube encloses the foam probe and the support of the glass frit in a stainless steel cell which is mounted into the measurement unit of the Foamscan HP. The frit is installed at the bottom of the foam tube. The gas is injected through the glass frit by a flowmeter. A thermocouple measures the temperature inside the cell. The temperature control is achieved by resistance heaters built into the environmental chamber walls.

Measurement of foam volume using foam probe

The probe monitors the foam's height. When probe and foam are connected, an electrical current circulates between the probes, making a conductance loop between the probe position and height of the foam and that measures the foam height or foam volume.

Liquid volume 100ml

Injection of gas through a glass frit

Temperature Max: 200°C, pressure Max: 100 bar
