An Introduction to the Industrial Centre for Rheology & Viscosity Testing

About Us


Founded by Neil Cunningham in 1998 we have helped researchers, formulators, process designers and quality controllers understand the flow behaviour of their products and those of their competitors. 

Neil Cunningham entered the field of rheology through sales and application development roles at rheometer manufacturers TA Instruments, Rheometric Scientific and Brookfield Viscometers.   Since that time he has:

  • Trained over a thousand instrument users across several hundred companies
  • Developed, validated, installed and supported over two hundred rheology and viscosity  testing methods.
  • Developed a commercially-successful instrument now marketed worldwide by Brookfield Engineering Inc
  • Worked with and advised instrument manufacturers on new markets and concepts

Neil is highly experienced in the practical issues facing researchers and quality controllers and possesses an excellent working knowledge of most rheometer and viscometer systems in use today.

The Centre for Industrial Rheology is located in the idyllic village of Warnford, Hampshire in the south of England.  The comprehensive rheometer and viscometer collection, relaxed facilities and excellent local accommodation and restaurants has made the centre very popular with visitors from all over the world.
