New, enhanced encoder allows for increased measuring and control capabilities while maintaining sophisticated rheological analysis at an affordable price. The R/S Plus Soft Solids Tester is a controlled rate/controlled stress rotational rheometer featuring vane spindles designed to measure "lumpy" or viscoelastic materials and is ideal for characterizing gels, pastes and slurries because of its ability to preserve sample structure with the use of vane spindles. Controlled stress tests provide important information on startup flow behavior (viscoelasticity, yield stress and creep).
R/S-SST Plus™ Rheometer Features & Benefits:
Vane spindle geometry allows spindle insertion without compromising sample structure
Easy-to-test method for materials with particulates, slurries, and stiff pastes
Provides data that relates to viscoelastic characteristics such as yield stress, shear modulus (stiffness of material structure when intact) and creep
Quantifies meaningful properties like wobbliness, sloppiness, consistency and texture
Automated data analysis under PC control
Rugged design for years of trouble-free operation in QC and R&D applications
Can also be used with coaxial cylinders for flow curve analysis
Optional Rheo3000 software with Soft Solids Module allows you to program the R/S Plus Soft Solids Tester and generate data such as yield point, shear modulus, creep and relaxation
