Rheological Characterization

HAAKE* CaBER 1 Capillary Breakup Extensional Rheometer

Thermo Scientific* HAAKE CaBER is an extensional rheometer that enables you to quantify extensional properties of semi-solids and fluids.

Complex flows that contain strong extensional components occur in many industrial processes and applications like extrusion flows, coating flows, contraction flows and fiber spinning flows. Materials that identically or similarly behave in a shearing flow can behave completely different in an extensional flow. Therefore, the knowledge of the elongational behaviour of fluids is important. The thinning and break-up of a fluid filament that is analyzed with the HAAKE CaBER provides valuable information on a material's physical properties that rotational rheometers simply cannot provide!



HAAKE* MARS* Rotational Rheometer

The Thermo Scientific* HAAKE MARS is one of the most modular high-end rheometer platforms in its class.

The innovative HAAKE MARS system was designed for flexibility and meets the most demanding requirements in research and development with an architecture that permits integration of custom modules. The concept is designed to meet today's and future rheology needs while protecting prior accessory investments.


HAAKE* RheoStress 6000 Rotational Rheometer

Thermo Scientific* HAAKE RheoStress 6000 is a rotational rheometer that is focused on standard applications in research & development and quality control.

Its normal force measurements and specifications as well as broad application solutions including UV curing, construction material cell and pressure cell emphasize the rheometer's broad field of applications.


Rheonaut Module: HAAKE* MARS* Rheometer

For a comprehensive understanding of a material, usually more than one characterization technique is required.  By combining two techniques into one instrument the amount of information that can be gathered from a single sample will be optimized.

Through using the Thermo Scientific RHEONAUT Module with the HAAKE MARS Rheometer both physical and chemical information can be simultaneously obtained from a single sample using one instrument.  The result enables a comparison of chemical information with rheological properties. 

The RHEONAUT is a valuable and powerful instrument that obtains real-time FT-IR spectra to track chemical constitutions and can uncover the relation between visco-elastic properties and individual reactive groups of complex polymers.

Applications for the RHEONAUT Module include Inter/Intramolecular interactions, Stability of emulsions, Network formation gelatine, Denaturization of proteins, Extensive investigations on chemical reactions, Thermal or UV-curing and Molecular orientation under shear.
