Rheology

Kinexus Prime DSR-III

Complete package for routine QA/QC paving analysis

Highlights

Incorporating technological innovations that enable optimal flexibility in rheological test capabilities and protocols.

The Kinexus Prime DSR-III forms part of a standard dynamic shear rheometer package to meet the demanding needs of research, product development, comparative benchmarking, quality control and assurance required by the global Asphalt / Bitumen Industry with true ‘plug and play’ functionality for all measuring systems and environmental control units. The Kinexus Prime DSR-III enables pioneering Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) based testing while offering access to a full range of standard rheological tests with total flexibility of test design and set-up.

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.
