is a modular research level rheometer system designed specifically
to address the challenging and diverse testing needs and requirements
of the serious rheologist. The instrument's unprecedented capability
and performance is the direct result of a design and development
effort focused exclusively on input and recommendations from rheometer
users. KINEXUS is designed for testing any rheologically
The instrument combines uncompromised performance with versatility
and accuracy, and continues to position ATS RheoSystems as the world leader of rheometers for the serious rheologist.
KINEXUS performs steady shear, transient, and dynamic oscillatory
measurements using parallel plate, cone and plate, couette, rectangular
torsion, dynamic tension, and other fixtures. The
rheometer's true 32 bit, multi-tasking software is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, and/or 7 operating systems, and provides a convenient platform
for instrument operation, data anlysis, and system networking. For
precise control of sample temperature, KINEXUS offers a series of environmental control systems ranging from circulating fluid bath, through Peltier plate and couette, to a circulation airflow furnace for a wide temperature range (-180 to 600°C) and maximum
temperature stability. The furnace is designed for testing polymer
melts, solid, and fluid materials. Other options include a High Pressure Cell (HPC) and UV Cell.
