Cold finger tests

Capabilities: “Measure wax deposits in a modern way with the multi-station cold finger. The well-known method, rethought, makes it possible. With the laboratory device, the behavior of up to 15 samples can be monitored at the same time, thus enabling rapid screening and analysis.
Perform a test with different temperatures and stirrer speeds. Remove the test cells individually to determine the effects of deposits vs. Time to watch.”
