September 10, 2010

Two day-long courses are being offered that provide hands-on knowledge of Brookfield's viscosity measurement offerings. The courses are offered at Brookfield’s facility in Middleboro, MA, and at major metropolitan areas across the U.S. In addition, arrangements can be made to conduct the courses at customers’ facilities, where content can be adapted to specific product applications.

The Practical Course on Viscosity Measurements provides attendees with the tools and concepts needed to make the most precise viscosity measurements possible. The course is designed to benefit operators at all levels of experience. Participants are encouraged to bring product samples for testing-hands-on time is provided in a relaxed laboratory environment.

The Applied Course on Viscosity Test Methods is designed for the intermediate to advanced Brookfield Instrumentation user in R&D, analytical, QC and process engineering functions. Focusing on test methods and techniques, it will review and discuss how Brookfield rotational viscometers and rheometers can be used to provide meaningful product analysis. The course goes beyond pass/fail criteria to an understanding of how to apply viscometric data as a problem solving and product performance/processing tool.
