Spraybase®Components

See below a collection of our most popular Spraybase® Kit components and a brief description.

20kV POWER SUPPLY

CAT000005

 A standard controller has a voltage range 0-20kV with advanced safety features. Advanced options include up to + or - 30kV, dual or tri flow control channels to electrospin multiple fibers.

 

CLIMATIC CONTROL CHAMBER

CAT000041

The Climatic Controller is designed to provide an environment where temperature and relative humidity values are static over an extended period. Min/Max Temp. 18°C/52°C. Max Rel. Humidity @ 20°C 65%. Min. Rel Humidity @ 50°C  25%.

 

SPRAYBASE® IMAGING SYSTEM

CAT000028

The visualization system includes a laser for illuminating the Taylor cone and spray plume and a camera for visualization. The free software can be downloaded on your computer to visualize the emitter tip.

 
Z-AXIS PN00006

Z-AXIS

PN00006

The z axis is manually controlled to exploit the emitter to collector distance. The range available is up to 22cm.

SYRINGE PUMP

CAT000006

Software controlled to allow the user to control the flow rate. An infusion rate of 0.75 ul/hr to a maximum 2100 ml/hr can be controlled. Maximum syringe size is 60 cc

 

SAFETY COVER

CAT000030

Spraybase® Safety cover with high voltage interlock. If the door is opened the interlock will disengage and prevent high voltage flow. This safety feature is vital when the system is used in undergraduate labs.

 

X-Y STAGE

CAT000108

The XY stage is an advanced option, the collector plate can move automatically in the X-Y plane under software control. This facilitates the collection of films or deposition of material to specific locations.

 
    TUBING CAT000049/50/51/53/76

 

 

TUBING

CAT000049/50/51/53/76

Our tubing comes in a range of sizes from 0.127um – 1 mm diameter for high or low viscous solutions. This tubing reduces dead volume and loss of precious solutions. It is made from PTFE a highly chemically resistant material for your highly volatile chemicals. 

POWER SUPPLY WITH PRESSURE CONTROL

CAT000047

Fluid and HV combination instrument. Low pulseless flow rates achieved with dead volumes almost fully eliminated. Voltage range 0-20kV. Flow Rates in the µL/min range (fluid dependent).

 

SPRAYBASE® PLATFORM

CAT000006

Anti-vibration mounts coupled with a heavy base ensure a stable basis for visualisation and measurement. Careful material choices ensure safe and effective management of electrical charge around the platform. 

 

SILENT AIR COMPRESSOR

CAT000016/17

This is necessary for the pressure over fluid system which  is ideal for driving low viscous solutions. This overcomes the pulsatile effect of the syringe pump leading to a higher stability of the Taylor cone and monodispersity of the particles. 

 
EMITTERS CAT0000071

EMITTERS

CAT0000071

Emitters range from 16G to 30G and are treated for hydrophobicity and designed for zero dead volume and laminar flow. Cost effective options for educational use include selected narrow gauge needles
