High shear rate capillary rheometer



The temperature controlled high shear rate (>1,000,000 sec-1) capillary rheometer is ideally suited to perform fundamental rheological measurement of large samples (500-3,000ml) of newtonian and non-newtonian fluids. Its ability to operate at high pressure enables the analysis of fluids ranging from highly viscous gels and polymer solutions (100-10Pa×sec), to greases, oil, inks, dyes, paints (1-0.01Pa×sec) and even water (0.001Pa×sec). The design also facilitates the performance of filling studies, and other flow visualization activities.





The rheometer is completely customizable to meet end user needs. Some examples include:


  • A wide range of capillary sizes to accommodate a variety of fluids,
  • Microchannel flow attachment with provisions for flow visualization,
  • Custom connections to pilot or production processes for on-line testing,
  • Control of external video cameras to synchronize testing,
  • Control of external fill pumps.




  • Single unit/transportable
  • Small footprint-Vertical capillaries
  • 316L Stainless construction
  • Extensive use of COTS hardware/software
  • Integrated heating and cooling
  • Fool-proof
  • Touch screen user interface
  • Intelligent diagnostics with "phone-home"
  • Self contained-Storage for capillaries on-board
  • Minimum maintenance-Closed loop pressure system.
