Brookhaven Instruments’ New Dielectric Constant Meter

Nov 7, 2019
Applications: Self-assembled
Instruments: BI-870

Brookhaven Instruments’ BI-870 Dielectric Constant Meter is a fast and easy-to-use tool for measuring the dielectric constant of liquids. This rugged, compact meter solves the problems associated with measuring mixed liquids and provides the user with precise indication of a suspension’s stability.

The BI-870 Dielectric Constant Meter is equipped with a durable, handheld probe made from stainless steel, nylon, and Teflon®, making it easy to clean in almost any kind of solvent. The instrument operates in either of two ranges, 1 – 20 or 1- 200. It is highly precise, with an absolute accuracy of ± 2 percent in both high and low dielectric liquids, and demonstrates a reproducibility and linearity better than 0.2 percent.

The BI-870 Dielectric Constant Meter offers laboratories a highly accurate and reliable method of determining dielectric constants of liquid mixtures and supplements the NanoBrook ZetaPlus and ZetaPALS instruments in particle characterization.
