The equipment available for use in the Laboratory is listed below:

Material Testing Machine- LF plus Lloyd instruments


used to test the tensile strength and compressive strength of materials,  can perform many standard tensile and compression tests on materials, components, and structures


Drop Shape analyzer – DSA25


Drop Shape Analyzer – DSA25 measures contact angle.

Analysis range from a simple wetting test to the accurate measurement of surface free energy (SFE), analyzing wetting and adhesion on solid surfaces.


Rheometer- Physica MCR - 101


Used to measure the way in which a liquid, suspension or slurry flows in response to applied forces.
It is used for those fluids which cannot be defined by a single value of viscosity


860 KF Thermoprep


Accurate determination of any water content (0.001 to 100%) Coulometry is a method for water determination in liquids, solids and gases for water determination in the trace range (10 µg to 10 mg absolute water).
Coulometer for low water contents including generator electrode.
