Extending Rheological Measurements for Concentrated Suspensions using Squeeze Flow
30 December 2016

Making shear rheological measurements on samples with a high solids fraction can present difficulties on a rotational rheometer, since the sample can be prone to fracture even at low - medium shear rates. In this application note, discover how a Kinexus rotational rheometer with advanced axial test capabilities can be used to extend the measurable shear rate range of concentrated suspensions, which are prone to fracture, by using the squeeze flow technique.
