Rheology & viscosity testing and texture analysis

Our laboratory is equipped with high quality rheometers and viscometers and a wide range of testing accessories and measuring systems to suit most applications and materials.   Our equipment list includes:

Rheology Testing Service: AR2000EX and AR1000N Controlled Stress Rheometers

  • Rheometer RigViscosity profiling as a function of shear stress, shear rate and temperature.
  • Zero-shear and infinite shear viscosity
  • Yield stress, critical strain and thixotropy.
  • Viscoelasticity profiling through oscillatory (dynamic) and creep testing modes
  • Determination of complex, elastic (storage) and viscous (loss) moduli, complex viscosity, phase angle and tan delta.
  • Vane testing methods
  • Normal stress and 1st Normal stress coefficient
  • Wide selection of cone and plate, plate/plate, concentric cylinders, crosshatched/roughened geometries of various materials.
