Copley Scientific exhibits precision benchtop detergent tester at Montreux 2010

Copley Scientific Tergotometer with refrigeration unitCopley Scientific will exhibit the latest equipment for testing detergents, including the company's precision benchtop Tergotometer, and equipment for testing powders, at the American Oil Chemists' Society (AOCS) 7th World Conference on Detergents. The conference takes place from 4-7 October 2010 in Montreux, Switzerland.  

Used to evaluate detergency properties by washing standardised soiled fabrics, Copley Scientific's Tergotometer combines eight miniature washing machine simulators within a single, benchtop instrument. This scaled down test environment minimises the quantity of detergent required during development and QC processes, whilst maximizing accuracy and throughput in a laboratory environment. Typical applications include: evaluating the effectiveness of detergents; optimising temperature, speed and water hardness parameters; examining the washability and colour fastness of fabrics; routine screening for dirt removal, brightening, softening, foaming and scale build-up. 

Through its simple programmable user interface, the Tergotometer can be set for an agitation range of 50 - 200 rpm and an electronically calibrated temperature range from ambient to 70 degrees C. Agitation speed and temperature are managed and monitored during testing via the digital display, with the facility to generate a printed report. With the addition of an optional refrigeration unit, the Tergotometer's temperature capabilities can be extended to below ambient. A modification that enables reversed rotation, to better simulate certain types of washing machine, is also available.
