Equipment For Viscosity Measurement

ANTON PAAR MCR 101 RHEOMETER with magnetorheological module

RHEOMETERs are used to measure the way in which a liquid, suspension or slurry flows in response to applied forces.  Rheology is the study of the flow of matter, primarily in a liquid state, but also as "soft solids" or solids under conditions in which they respond with plastic flow rather than deforming elastically in response to an applied force. For this reason, rheology is also considered to be the study of stress-strain relationships in materials.

ANTON PAAR MCR 101 RHEOMETER with magnetorheological module is used for viscosity measurements of materials in the absence or presence of an applied magnetic field, being fitted with a magnetorheological module. The rheometer allows the determination of the flow dependence as a function of time and/or temperature. The rheometer is used to measure the flow properties of materials, rotational tests with controlled shear tensions, creep tests, oscillatory tests with controlled tension or creep rate. In all measurements, a magnetic field of maximum 1T can be applied. The rheometer allows the evaluation of the technical performances of the rheological fluids: electrorheological and magnetorheological.
