Sedimentation | Measurements

Attension® Sigma 700/701 force tensiometers can be used to evaluate the amount of sedimentation of a suspension due to gravity. The suspension liquid is kept still and the balance of the tensiometer measures the mass change of the sedimentation probe within a time period. The higher the mass change is, the faster the sedimentation process occurs.
