Visco Indicator - Measurement of rheological parameters in real time.

ViscoIndicator

Specifically designed for the thermoplastics resin industry, the ViscoIndicator provides continuous measurements of the melt flow rate, apparent viscosity, or intrinsic viscosity directly on the extruder.
The ViscoIndicator online rheometer duplicates the test conditions of a laboratory Melt Flow Rate (MFR) tester or capillary rheometer. Melt viscosity measurements such as melt flow rate and Intrinsic viscosity are primary specifications of thermoplastic resins. MFR and melt viscosity are related to polymer molecular properties so these numbers give some measure of the physical properties of their product as well as polymer processability. The ViscoIndicator has a look and feel that will be familiar to most shop personnel.
Why is this important – it lowers the training time to become effective in measuring the rheological properties of your polymer process. This along with the ease of connection gets you up in running in the minimal amount of time.
