Brookfield Announces Viscosity Courses

August 15, 2011

Brookfield recently announced it offers two hands-on courses that can help users of its instruments to get the most out of their viscosity test methods. These one-day training sessions are presented in easy-to-understand terms that give attendees the working know-how to verify and improve on the data required for meaningful R&D and successful QC testing.

The courses can be scheduled to take place at Brookfield’s Middleboro, MA, headquarters and at major metropolitan areas across the U.S. Courses can also be conducted at customers’ facilities, where content can be adapted to specific product applications.

The course “Practical Course on Viscosity Measurements” offers attendees the tools and concepts to make precise viscosity measurements. The course is designed to benefit operators of all levels, 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 Brookfield Instrumentation user in R&D, analytical, and process engineering functions. Focusing on test methods and techniques, it reviews and discusses how rotational viscometers and rheometers can be used to provide meaningful product analysis.
