From expert advice to turnkey systems with developed methods, training and support.
The Centre for Industrial Rheology provide a range of viscosity method audits, test method development and validation services and complete turnkey system supply for companies that have neither the time, staff resource or appetite for these activities.
Rheology Test Issues
Poorly-developed viscosity testing methods can be costly and time- consuming. A hastily cobbled together rheology test can result in returned product, costly re-works and a damaged reputation. However it is easy to see how substandard test methods become established; making the right choice from the range of competing viscometers, rheometers, spindles, cones, plates and cylinders is bad enough. Add in the onerous task of establishing sample handling, conditioning and measurement protocols – and deciding on suitable pass/fail limits – it’s little wonder so many viscosity tests making it into service are not fit for purpose.
