Qualitest announces the release of a new line of Capillary Rheometer R6000 Series. This laboratory grade twin-bore capillary Rheometer saves testing time by allowing the user to get two results in one test cycle. The other key advantage of this new R 6000 series is that they can automatically calculate Bagley or other corrections, which translates into a true measure of absolute viscosity. This Twin bore unit is also useful in detecting slip-wall effects. High slip at the wall may result from lubricants, pigments, or other additives. Excessive slip can indicate the need to reduce additive levels, which will save formulation cost and improve processing.
In conjunction with the software package the R6000 enables users to rapidly make high accuracy rheological measurements on a wide range of materials. Both shear and extensional properties of the specimens can be obtained, at rates representative of those encountered during normal processing, such as extrusion, injection molding, blow molding and film blowing.
In terms of product features the R6000 offers an extremely robust and reliable design based on an H-Frame construction rated at 250KN, with force drive capability of up to 100KN and twin bores of 15mm diameter as standard.
One of the key features of the R6000 is the high quality instrumentation and software user interface. The software is designed for high productivity and includes many ease-of-use features and very powerful analysis and reporting. The user interface is highly configurable and a series of user levels can be defined to restrict access to certain features of the software so that less advanced users can use the software without the risk of producing invalid results.
The R6000 also offers a backlit LCD display showing machine operating status and barrel temperature and allowing for manual user input via a keypad and thumbwheel. The machine is suitable for research, process development and quality control in the polymer, food, pharmaceutical, ceramics and many other industries.
The R6000 from Qualitest has the highest price versus performance rating in the industry. To find out more about the R-6000 capillary Rheometer please visit www.WorldofTest.com/capillary-rheometer or contact Qualitest at 1.877.884.8378, firstname.lastname@example.org.
