R/S Plus Rheometer for Controlled Rate/Stress Measurement
Available from Brookfield AMETEK Inc
Brookfield’s R/S Plus Rheometer comes complete with all the features Brookfield customers are familiar with, a smaller diameter spindle shaft, smaller size water jacket accessory and direct control of temperature from the keypad on P1 and P2 Cone Plate Models.
The R/S Plus is designed for rheological evaluation of materials through the direct measurement of viscosity, yield stress, thixotropic response, creep and other flow properties. This unit features a temperature range up to 180°C, speed range from 0.1 to 1,000 rpm, and measurement sensitivity delivering comprehensive data for modulus and static yield stress as well as information for creep testing.
The R/S Plus operates in both stand-alone mode as well as under PC control. The R/S Plus running under Brookfield’s Rheo 3000 Software provides powerful flow characterization tools including shear ramp, loop and single point testing.
This unit is available with cone/plate, plate/plate, or coaxial cylinder measurement geometries. The R/S is engineered to meet the demands of quality control labs and to provide sophisticated flexibility for research environments as well as simple operation on the production floor.
Applications include: adhesives, coatings, gels, paints, personal care, and many more.
