Practical Viscosity Testing

Online training courses for viscosity testingThis live, practical session is ideal for anybody using viscometers who is looking to perform accurate, repeatable and relevant viscosity measurements on their liquids and semi solids. The course content is tailored to suit your own materials and aimed at either R&D/formulators or quality control staff.

The course covers all the essentials for good viscosity testing:

  • Buying the correct viscometer for your needs
  • Suitable measuring methods for non-Newtonian, pseudoplastic or thixotropic samples.
  • Selecting spindles and speeds: Spindle 3 at 20 rpm? T-bar/Helipath? Small sample adaptor?
  • Why does my viscosity reading fluctuate? When should I take the reading?
  • What should I do if my viscometer reads over or under torque for my sample? Do I change the speed or change the spindle?

The “Practical Viscosity Testing” Online Training Course Includes:

  • One hour presentation and live demonstrations
  • Half hour of Q&A, tips and tricks for measuring your own products
  • One month Q&A support

Practical Rheology Part 1 – Thinking like a Rheologist

Online training courses for thinking like a rheologistIdeal for recipients of rheological data who need to confidently interpret and discuss results and extract value for product development, process design or quality assurance. This fun and accessible session comprising one hour of presentation and half an hour of discussion shows the participant how to describe, rheologically, the liquids and semi solids we encounter. The key concepts covered are:

  • Structure, yield stress and thixotropy
  • Viscosity and non-Newtonian flow
  • Viscoelasticity, storage and loss modulus

Lots of live examples of real, everyday materials are demonstrated to really bring the concepts to life for the participant and the relevance of rheological properties to real-life processing, storage, handling and product performance are discussed.

The “Thinking like a Rheologist” Online Training Course Includes:

  • One hour presentation and live demonstrations
  • Half hour of Q&A, tips and tricks for measuring your own products
  • One month Q&A support

Practical Rheology Part 2 – The Rheologist’s Toolkit

Online training courses to learn about the rheologist's toolkitIdeal for rheometer users who want to better identify and demonstrate the rheological behaviours of most relevance. The Rheologist’s Toolkit gets into the practical aspects of measuring the rheological properties of a range of liquids and semi solids. The session introduces a toolkit of metrics and methods that can be applied using most rheometer systems for the rheological profiling of suspensions, emulsions, gels, solutions and waxes.

The content covers:

  • Viscosity profiling methods using shear rate and shear stress controlled conditions
  • Oscillatory testing fundamentals
  • Oscillatory amplitude sweeps for structured liquids
  • Oscillatory frequency sweeps for “viscoelastic fingerprinting”
  • Recommended measuring accessories: cones, plates, cylinders etc
  • Dealing with “difficult” materials

Real testing on real equipment is demonstrated! The resulting data is interpreted and tips on how to communicate these results are given.

The “The Rheologist’s Toolkit” Online Training Course Includes:

  • One hour presentation and live demonstrations
  • Half hour of Q&A, tips and tricks for measuring your own products
  • One month Q&A support
