  Working Principles
Click to ViewA Rheometer is a laboratory device used to measure the way in which a liquid, suspension or slurry flows in response to applied forces. It is used for those fluids which cannot be defined by a single value of viscosity and therefore require more parameters to be set and measured than is the case for a viscometer. More specifically, rheometers measure the forces (like shear) associated with a flowing substance. Typically, the flowing substance is much thicker than a liquid (like concrete). It also measures the effects of flow at different pressures-especially key characteristics of the flow like shear (how difficult it is to change the flow) or how the flow of a substance tends to drag surrounding materials.

  User Instructions
1. Determines Fluid flow behaviour 2. Viscoelastic properties of food products. 3. Temperature dependent flow properties Do not bend or drop the measuring system. Even a slight mechanical damage may cause serious measurement errors. For air bearing instruments, make sure that the air supply and air drier are connected and working at the correct pressure
