Product News: New Viscometer Line from Thermo Fisher Scientific

17 Dec 2010

The new viscometer line from Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. features three models, each suited for a unique user requirement:

• Thermo Scientific HAAKE Viscotester E – The expert model. For automatic flow curve measurements with full PC control.
• Thermo Scientific HAAKE Viscotester D – The distinct model For routine viscosity measurements with data transfer.
• Thermo Scientific HAAKE Viscotester C – The convenient model For easy, fast and accurate manual viscosity measurements.

The rotational viscometers are used for quick and reliable tests and comparative viscosity measurements according to recognized standards in quality control. They measure the resistance of a test substance against a pre-set speed. The resulting torque or resistance measures the viscosity of the fluid. A broad range of accessories allows for comparative measurements of highly viscous samples such as creams, pastes and gels or for viscosity measurements of small volumes.

“The Thermo Scientific HAAKE RheoWin software available with the E or D models ensures fully automated measuring and analysis routines, data analysis and report creation, as well as user access control and assignment of specific access rights,” says Markus Schreyer, vice president and general manager of Thermo Fisher Scientific’s material characterization business. “This software compatibility with our rheometers is in line with our commitment to provide user-friendly and reliable instruments for comprehensive material characterization.
