CAS Charge Analysing System
Charge Analysing System
The all-new CAS particle charge measurement system takes traditional methods of measuring Streaming Potential and establishes a new era of technology and comfort in particle charge analysis. Using industry accepted techniques of titration CAS determines cationic / anionic and acid / base demands of aqueous charge systems. Both Streaming Potential (mV) and pH are measured simultaneous. Making it possible to easily determine isoelectric and flocculation points of a sample.
How the CAS differs from conventional charge detectors is its integrated titrator and the use of a modern and user-friendly PC software. No longer is it necessary to have separate devices - Charge Detector, pH Meter, Thermometer, Titrator - to conduct charge analysis. The CAS brings it all together in one simple to use portable package. The instrument comes with a highly accurate computer-controlled dosing pump. Expensive external titrators are no longer necessary. The integrated titrator also eliminates the need for hand titrations, saves time and increases accuracy. Essential in busy labs and situations where the consumption rate is very low.
The user-friendly and powerful PC-software allows for easy handling and transfer of test results. Data can be stored, analysed, exported to Excel or e-mailed from one platform. The CAS system comes with a temperature compensated pH-detector. This feature allows determination of the isoelectric point (IEP), but also the examination of the correlation
between pH, Titrant Demand and Streaming Potential.
