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.
  • Twin Peltier design for rapid temperature changes and sample equilibration, and minimized thermal gradients.
  • Temperature resolution to 0.01ºC.
  • Various cup and bob sizes available - C14 (DIN), C25 (DIN) and wide diameter C34.
  • Double gap cell for high sensitivity measurements with low viscosity fluids.
  • Range of vane tools available for characterizing dispersions, including yield stress materials.
  • Interchangeable lower cups to optimize measurement set-up for different sample types, plus removable base options for ease of cleaning.
  • Can be used with Torsion/DMA system to allow testing of a self-supporting rectangular or cylindrical solid sample.
  • Additional plate insert provides a ‘universal Peltier option’ which enables the rheometer to be used in either coaxial cylinder or plate measurement mode with one cartridge.
  • Additional optical plate insert provides an optical path for imaging of a sample during measurement.  
  • Can be configured for use with the UV/Visible Curing System
