ATS RHEOSYSTEMS: Viscoelastic Measurement System
April 25, 2005
The New Sealed Cell from ATS RheoSystem/REOLOGICA Instruments was designed specifically for the measurement of viscoelastic rheological properties (G', G", Tan Delta) or solutions above their boiling point or without loss of any volatile components. The patented system allows measurements under pressure with full dynamic oscillation and viscometric capability. The air-bearing seal is effectively frictionless and permits very low torque and dynamic oscillatory testing throughout the frequency range of the rheometer. One of the unique features of the Sealed Cell is its ability to test pastes and semisolid materials at elevated pressures and temperatures by utilizing a parallel plate measuring system.
