Scientific Solutions has a 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.
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 leak-proof hydrophilic 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.
