It is imperative to understand how thermoplastics flow when being processed. Learn about the time dependence of flow properties and other important characteristics.
One year ago, NETZSCH Analyzing & Testing announced the extension of its product portfolio with the Kinexus rotational rheometers and Rosand capillary rheometers. Our Rheology Application Specialists look back on the highlights and hint at the important topics coming up in 2021.
The Rosand RH2000 Capillary Rheometer is an instrument that analyzes the flow properties of any type of material under processing conditions, like high forces and high speeds. Our rheology specialist, Torsten Remmler, shows how to prepare the instrument for an experiment and gives important tips when operating it.
Traditionally, capillary rheometers have been used to measure the shear viscosity and elasticity of viscous materials at high shear rates. In this article and video, Natalie Rudolph (PhD) explains the working principle, parameters and their relations of the capillary rheometer.
Rheology studies the deformation and flow of fluids. Traditionally, capillary rheometers have been used to measure the shear viscosity and elasticity of viscous materials at high shear rates. Learn why you need a capillary rheometer and what data you can obtain.
NETZSCH Analyzing & Testing acquired the rheology product line, including a team of international specialists, from Malvern Panalytical in January 2020. We are very excited about the future of our new rheology products. Today, we are reaching out to all of our Kinexus and Rosand rheometer users to answer any questions you may have in this article.
