Brookfield Announces Viscosity Courses

May 18, 2011

Brookfield recently announced it offers two hands-on courses to help users of its instruments get the most out of their viscosity test methods. The one-day training sessions are presented in easy-to-understand terms that give attendees the working know-how to verify and improve upon the data required for meaningful R&D and successful QC testing. Courses can be scheduled to take place at Brookfield’s headquarters in Middleboro, MA, as well as metropolitan areas across the U.S. In addition, courses can take place 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 they need to make precise viscosity measurements. The course is designed to benefit all operators, from beginner to advanced. Participants are encouraged to bring product samples for testing where hands-on time is provided in a relaxed laboratory environment.

“Applied Course on Viscosity Test Methods” is designed for the intermediate to advanced instrument user in R&D, analytical, and process engineering functions. Focusing on test methods and techniques, the course will review and discuss how Brookfield rotational viscometers and rheometers can be used to provide meaningful product analysis.
