Rheometers
  • Anton Paar MCR 301
  • Göttfert Rheograph 6000 capillary rheometer
Accessories
  • Magneto-Rheological Device (MRD): used to analyze the influence of a magnetic field on the viscoelastic properties of magnetorheological fluids (MRF) and ferrofluids
  • SER fixture for extensional rheology: provides information about molecular structure, branching, temperature stability, shrinkage, relaxations, and brittleness as well as the adhesion and peel strength of films and fibers
  • Pressure chamber for the capillary rheometer: can be used to simulate different pressure drops, thereby measuring the viscosity close to process conditions
