Product News: Discover the RST Touch Series – Touch-Screen Rheometers for Controlled Rate/Stress Measurement

13 Mar 2017


The RST Series of touch screen rheometers represent the best that AMETEK Brookfield has to offer – instruments that operate both in controlled shear rate (rpm) and controlled shear stress (torque) modes – for sophisticated rheological analysis.  With automatic data collection and analysis using optional Rheo3000 software, RST Rheometers offer greater flexibility and more features than other high-end rheometers in their class – at a fraction of the cost.

RST Rheometers have a durable design with rapid bob (spindle) attachment and easy-to-clean surfaces for years of trouble-free operation.  Increased measurement capabilities range from simple single-point viscosity tests to comprehensive rheological profiling.  Evaluate material behavior from initial yield stress through full flow curve response at variable shear rates to relaxation, recovery and creep.

The RST touch screen series is available in three configurations and all models feature: 

  • Controlled stress/rate operation to analyze comprehensive flow behavior
  • User friendly LCD touch screen with graphical display
  • 11 memory slots for structured multi-step test programs
  • Auto spindle identity recognition
  • Quick connect coupling for easy spindle attachment
  • Optional Rheo 3000 Software for PC control and data management
  • 21 CFR compliance for controlled user access and data security

Some popular applications include:  adhesives, biomass, chocolate, dairy, gypsum, pesticides, pharmaceutical, pigment dispersions, sauces, syrups and sludge, slurries and concrete.
