Scientific Solutions has an exclusive distribution agreement with KSV Instruments, Finland as the national Australian and New Zealand distributor of all KSV products.
KSV Minitrough miniature Langmuir Blodgett and Langmuir Film Balance is a compact and modular instrument. Its experimental capabilities and performance exceed that of many full size Langmuir and Langmuir-Blodgett devices, but at a quarter of the price!
With its interchangeable troughs the Minitrough handles the full range of Langmuir and Langmuir-Blodgett film experiments.
The KSV Minitrough Series is available in several basic modular configurations, however the modularity of the KSV Minitrough allows upgrade at any time. KSV provides a variety of special troughs for the Minitrough.
The Minitrough features symmetric or single-sided compression of the monolayer by two inter-linked surface barriers. T standard barriers are l eak-proof hydro philic Delrin, but hydrophobic PTFE barriers are also optionally available. The trough is a form-sintered single piece of non-porous PTFE trough.
Subphase temperature control is facilitated by aluminium heating/cooling base plate operated by optional external circulating water bath.
Surface pressure is available on the digital display.
