Instrument Software

VISCOANALYSER's RheoExplorer software consists of one of the following measuring programs:

  • Viscometry stress sweep
  • Creep/Recovery
  • Oscillation under stress & strain control
  • Yield Stress
Temperature Control Units
The instrument can be delivered with temperature control units using either thermostat liquid or resistively heated/adiabatically cooled furnaces for plate/plate, cone/plate, and solids testing. The instrument can perform tests in constant temperature mode, gradient mode and as temperature profiles.
VISCOANALYSER can be delivered with a variety of different measuring systems and accessories. Examples include: Concentric Cylinders, Double Gap, Cone/Plate, Parallel Plate, Solids Testing in Torsion and Tension, and customized measuring systems for demanding applications.VISCOANALYSER can be upgraded to include measuring programs for Constant Shear Rate, Project, and Analyze. In addition all rheometers can be equipped with our patented, Differential Pressure Normal Force Sensor for quantitative normal stress measurements.

BLACK PEARL Viscometer

Designed for performing both routine rheological tests like single point viscosity checks for QC, to complex rheological evaluation for R&D, the BLACK PEARL viscometer is ideal for investigating the mixing, stirring, and process flow characteristics of fluid systems. BLACK PEARL Viscometer is a high performance rotational viscometer capable of both steady shear and yield stress testing in a rugged.



Standard software allows frequency sweep testing and a special SHRP program provides binder specification testing at 10 rad/s.VISCOANALYSER DSR was specifically designed with resistively heated lower plate and radiant heated upper plate, rather than the conventional water circulating bath systems.



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 and maximum temperature stability.



Also featured are patented Differential Pressure Normal Force Sensor, a Camera Viewer, Ethernet Communication, High-Speed USB port and RheoExplorer V6 software. This null balance system allows for Nano-Torque and Nano-Strain measurement control and analysis. NOVA Rheometer features a unique "Net- Zero" bias bearing system. Nano-Strain Rheological Measurement Control and Analysis. NOVA The New Star of Rheometers.



Also featured are Extensional Viscosity measurement by convergent flow, hyperbolic die or precision melt strength system with optional extrudate profile measurement. High precision is achieved through the use of tungsten carbide dies, multi-point calibration and high precision transducers and amplifiers. Both floor and bench top models are available with singe and dual bore capabilities.
