Rheological measurement. (Instruments).
The MiniLab micro rheology compounder combines compounding and rheological measurement of micro amounts of material into one compact system. Designed for material science research and development applications, the MiniLab is said to be ideal for new polymer development. Based on proven conical twin-screw technology and a new rheological measurement method, the MiniLab is said to combine the advantages of both a mixer and an extruder in a batch process. Designed for small amounts of materials, the MiniLab is said to effectively handle as little as 8 g of material. Testing and handling capabilities include continuous viscosity measurements in the backflow channel at up to 350 [degrees] C, automatic bypass operation for circulation and extrusion, inert gas flush of the feeding area and barrel, and pneumatic feeding. Digital and graphic data can be manually controlled from the system's large-scale back-lit LCD display or from a computer using Windows software. (ThermoHaake)
