Brookfield recently announced two hands-on courses that equip users of its instruments with the knowledge to 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 knowledge to verify and improve upon the data required for meaningful R&D and successful QC testing. The courses are offered at Brookfield’s headquarters in Middleboro, MA, and at major metropolitan areas across the U.S. Arrangements can also be made to conduct courses at customers’ facilities, where content can be adapted to their specific product applications.

The Practical Course on Viscosity Measurements reportedly provides attendees with the tools and concepts they need to make the most precise viscosity measurements possible. 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.

The 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 will review and discuss how Brookfield rotational viscometers and rheometers can be used to provide product analysis.
