Rheology Lab Information

VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland
Industrial Biotechnology and Food & Biomaterial Processing and Products, Sustainable Products and Materials research area, Espoo
  • TA Instruments DHR-2
  • TA Instruments AR-G2
  • Anton Paar MCR 301
  • Brookfield viscometers
  • Wide selection of measurement geometries: various parallel plate, cone-plate and concentric cylinder geometries with smooth and crosshatched surface finishes (for the TA Instruments and Anton Paar rheometers)
  • Vane-in-cup geometries: for the rheological characterization of samples exhibiting wall slip, large particles and/or sensitive microstructure (for the TA Instruments and Anton Paar rheometers)
  • Interfacial rheology: Measurement of interfacial shear rheological properties (Bicone and Du Noüy Ring geometries available for the TA Instruments rheometers) and dilatational rheological properties (using an Attension Theta tensiometer or a KSV Langmuir-Blodgett Minitrough)
  • Immobilization cell: measurement of the rheological properties, immobilization kinetics, water retention and drying of paper coatings, paints, slurries and other suspensions during vacuum-assisted dewatering (for the Anton Paar rheometer)
