Press Release Summary:
Available with cone/plate, plate/plate, or coaxial cylinder measurement geometries, Model R/S Plus provides rheological evaluation of materials through direct measurement of viscosity, yield stress, thixotropic response, creep, and other flow properties.
Encoder optimizes angular resolution of spindle position to 15.7 micro radians. Rheo2000 software provides flow characterization tools including shear ramp, loop, and single point testing.
Original Press Release:
The New R/S Plus Rheometer Offers Dramatic Increase in Flow Measurement Capability
Middleboro, MA - Brookfleld, the world leader in rheometer and viscometer instrumentation, now offers the enhanced R/S Plus Rheometer. The R/S Plus provides increased speed range, control resolution and measurement sensitivity.
The new R/S Plus Rheometer features an improved encoder that increases the angular resolution of the spindle position to 15.7 micro radians, which is 50 times better that the existing design. This provides improved control at low torque and shear rates, delivers increased sensitivity at low shear rates for smoother data, a more precise static yield test capability and more information for creep testing.
The R/S Plus features a broader speed range from 0.1 to 1,000 rpm. This increases the shear rate capability of the instrument in both stand-alone operation as well as under PC control. The R/S Plus is designed for rheological evaluation of materials through the direct measurement of viscosity, yield stress, thixotropic response, creep and other flow properties.
The R/S Plus and Brookfield's Rheo2000 software provide powerful flow characterization tools including shear ramp, loop and single point testing. The R/S Plus is available with cone/plate, plate/plate, or coaxial cylinder measurement geometries. It is engineered to meet the demands of quality control labs and to provide sophisticated flexibility for research environments as well as the production floor.
