  • "The training courses given by The Centre for Industrial Rheology have been extremely useful to us, as they are targeted at the right level for R&D, QC and manufacturing. They have increased our understanding of Rheology and its relevance across the business."

    Laleham Healthcare

  • "When a quality-control viscosity test was required recently for a major cheese paste supply contract, The Centre for Industrial Rheology quickly identified our needs. We were very impressed with their in-depth and practical knowledge of testing procedures and equipment. They responded quickly and specified the required viscometer for both us and our customer, developed a reliable test method and provided training and support for all users."

    Kerry Foods Group

  • "The Centre for Industrial Rheology has been a long-time user of  TA Instrument’s rheometers and we are very impressed with their uniquely practical and accessible approach to rheological testing, method development and teaching."

    TA Instruments

  • "In regards to the Centre for Industrial Rheology,  I can say without a doubt that the training my company received from them was very valuable.  They showed us how to look at data collected in a different way to make sure the data was good, but also to get the most out of the data that was collected by our Brookfield viscometers.  We put into use what they taught us as soon as the very next day, and I feel more confident in the way we are conducting our tests as a result.  I recommend having The Centre for Industrial Rheology come in to anyone who is looking to improve their knowledge of rheology and data interpretation."

    Hershey’s

  • "The Centre for Industrial Rheology used practical examples to reach an audience with varying levels of experience in rheology.  Their energy made the topics interesting and, more importantly, retainable.  The hands-on practice helped to re-inforce the lessons learned in class."

    PepsiCo

  • "The Centre for Industrial Rheology’s value lies in their ability to offer sound technical advice on the development of practical and appropriate test methods to suit specific needs. Their work for our group resulted in a test method that has been extensively employed for process development and scale-up prior to transferal to our production sites."

    Procter and Gamble

  • "We are very impressed with the rheological services offered by the Centre for Industrial Rheology. They developed some effective and easy-to-use methods for our TA rheometer for some difficult-to-measure samples. The method development was then backed up with training that was concise, coherent and refreshingly uncomplicated."
