It will be seen that, upon combining all the elements of the apparatus, we can obtain very different combinations; and, according to the inventor, his rheometer is a substitute for a dozen galvanometers of various degrees of sensitiveness, and permits of measuring currents of from 20 amperes down to 1/50000000 an ampere.
Malvern rheometer helps Michelman develop coatings
The rheometer combines steady shear and oscillatory testing capability with good temperature control.
'The rheometer is easy to clean and it is simple to switch between different test types for wet or dry samples, aqueous or solvent-based systems,' he added.
Scientists at Michelman are using a rotational rheometer from Malvern Instruments to customise its water-based surface modifiers, polymers and coatings.
Salvador Crespo, senior research and development chemist at Grace Davison, said: 'Using the rheometer shortens research times, which is a major gain.
Packaging Technologies is using a rotational rheometer to accelerate the development of new food-grade and industrial sealants.
The Malvern rheometer has proven to be a cost-effective, reliable and easy-to-use choice for steady shear and oscillatory testing throughout the product development cycle.
Data generated using the Viscotek TDAmax, Malvern's advanced triple-detector gel-permeation chromatography (GPC) system, and the Rosand RH-7, a floor-standing capillary rheometer, enable the company to tailor the polymer to meet the demands of the polymer processing community.
The Rosand RH7 is a twin-bore floor-standing capillary rheometer with good performance in terms of speed control, accuracy and dynamic operating range.
