The high sensitivity pressure cell is designed to integrate with new or existing ARES-G2 rheometers
to provide an easy-to-use system for these important measurements, according to the company.
The high cost of viscometers and rheometers
is expected to restrain the growth of this market during the forecast period.
The range of applications for the new rheometer
extends to all plastics and is reliable in processes from highly viscous pipe compounds to low viscous products for fibre and injection moulding.

debuted at the 6th North American Conference on Self-Consolidating Concrete (SCC 2016), held earlier this year in Washington, D.C.
"The HAAKE Viscotester iQ is an intuitive, robust portable rheometer
," said Birgit Schroeder, product line director, material characterization laboratory instruments, Thermo Fisher Scientific.
streamline workflows by offering application packages that bundle the rheometer
with task-specific accessories for markets that include pharmaceutical, cosmetics, food, petrochemical, and polymers, the company adds.
Malvern's Kinexus rheometers
deliver high performance characterization of dispersions, complex fluids and soft solids and are used within a diverse range of industries and applications - from pharmaceutical drug development through to food quality testing.
Kalman Migler and his colleagues created the rheometer
that is about one-twentieth the size of a postage stamp.
An acquisition and data analysis software is provided with the rheometer
(CAPCALC 32 software), which is able to determine the rheological parameters of the lubricants, based on four models: power law, Bingham, Casson and Herschel Bulkley (***, 2009).
Kinexus incorporates technological innovations in the most critical areas of rheometer
design, from sample preparation and loading, through measurement set-up and operation, to data analysis and reporting.
Known as the APA 2000 Advanced Polymer Analyzer, this is a unique type of oscillating parallel-plate rheometer
that has been used to analyze thermosets, composites, and some thermoplastics such as polyolefins (see "Learn More" box).
