Rheology

Kinexus Prime pro+

More Rheology, less effort

Highlights

The Research grade Power of Prime Rheometer 

The Kinexus Prime pro+ rheometer is specifically designed for the rheological characterization of dispersions and other complex liquids and soft solids, offering unparalleled dual-action capabilities for shear and vertical testing. This modular rheometer has true "plug and play" functionality for all measuring systems and environmental units and also enables groundbreaking standard operating procedure (SOP) based rheological testing.

Method

The rotational rheology is a measurement method for determining the flow and deformation properties of materials using rotational movements. A sample is placed between two plates or in a cylindrical measuring system (e.g. a cone-plate system) and subjected to a rotating shear force. By analyzing the resulting shear StressStress is defined as a level of force applied on a sample with a well-defined cross section. (Stress = force/area). Samples having a circular or rectangular cross section can be compressed or stretched. Elastic materials like rubber can be stretched up to 5 to 10 times their original length.stress and shear rate, important rheological parameters such as viscosity, elasticity and yield point can be determined. This method is particularly useful for the characterization of liquids, gels, pastes and soft solids in various scientific and industrial applications.
