Materials Testing: Rheology 


Rheology testing is measuring the physical properties of liquids, polymers, gels, magnetorheological materials, and elastomers using a rheometer.  Rheological measurements can be used for product characterization or quality control. Our rheometer system provides flow curves of such materials up to 10,000 1/s shear rate while also providing strain sweep and frequency sweep to provide dynamic flow properties.  A thermal control unit provides temperature-controlled testing of samples from -10°F to 250°F. Our rheometer is also equipped with an automated electromagnet designed specifically to characterize magnetorheological materials. 

Dynamic properties of fluid and solids

Temperature Range: -4 to 158 deg F
