Proxy facilities

Many research groups have pieces of equipment that are under-used. There are often instances where external users wish to access this equipment. ANFF-Q can provide business services to our clients to facilitate this access. Please contact us for details.

The current instruments available through facilitated access are listed below.


AR-G2 rheometerar-g2-rheometer

The AR-G2 from TA Instruments is an advanced controlled stress, direct strain and controlled rate rheometer with a magnetic-levitation thrust bearing and a drag cup motor to allow nanotorque control. The device is suitable for testing of melts, fluids and interfaces.

A broad spectrum of bulk rheological measurements can be performed with this instrument, varying from linear dynamic characterisation, the determination of yield stresses, monitoring the kinetics of curing and crystallisation, the determination of the structure of samples by means of dynamic testing after different pre-shear histories.

A wide range of cones (1°/40 mm and 2°/60 mm) and plates (diameters ranging from 20 to 60 mm) is available.

oca-20OCA 20

The OCA 20 is a video-supported contact angle measuring instrument. Whatever substances you examine, whether they are surfactant solutions, liquid phases of micro-emulsions or molten metals and polymers, the OCA 20 will calculate the surface and interfacial tension from the contours of pendant and sessile drops as well as of liquid lamellae on plates, bars and fibres.
