Environmental controllers for the Kinexus rheometer are based on a unique ‘plug and play’ cartridge design.

  • Cartridge insertion mechanism is quick, easy and robust
  • All mechanical, power, communication and fluid connections made in one action
  • Automatic cartridge recognition and configuration
  • Active Hood design based on interactive temperature control elements in local sample environment to minimize radial and vertical thermal gradients
  • Temperature changes of up to 30ºC per minute
  • Extremely stable temperature control using a high accuracy PT100 sensor in close proximity to sample
  • Temperature resolution to 0.01ºC
  • Wide range of compatible cone-plate and parallel plate measuring systems available as standard
  • Interchangeable lower plates for optimal geometry combinations
  • Efficient solvent trap designed for accurate measurement of samples with volatile components
  • Inlet for inert gas feed into sample environment
