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.
  • Rapid temperature changes of up to 30°C per minute.
  • Extremely stable temperature control using a high accuracy PT100 sensor in close proximity to sample.
  • Temperature resolution to 0.01°C.
  • Wide range of compatible cone-plate and parallel plate measuring systems available as standard.
  • Interchangeable lower plates enable optimal geometry choice for particular samples, whilst maintaining optimum thermal performance.
  • Easy to clean design.
  • Efficient solvent trap design for accurate measurement of samples with volatile components and to minimize sample drying over long times.
  • Disposable plate option for curing materials.
