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 and communication connections made in one action.
  • Automatic cartridge recognition and configuration.
  • Rapid temperature changes of up to 20ºC per minute.
  • Extremely stable temperature control using a high accuracy PT100 sensor in close proximity to sample.
  • Temperature resolution to better than 0.01ºC.
  • Standard air cooling system included for temperature control and rapid cooling down to ambient temperature.
  • Adiabatic cooling option for testing below ambient.
  • Wide range of compatible cone-plate and parallel-plate measuring systems (up to 60mm diameter) available.
  • Interchangeable lower plates enable optimal geometry choice for particular samples, whilst maintaining optimum thermal performance.
  • Included solvent trap design for accurate measurement of samples with volatile components and to minimize sample drying over long times. 
  • Thermally insulated cover contains purge gas inlet allowing measurements to be made in an inert atmosphere.
  • Easy to clean design.
