Viscoelastic Property Determination — A New Application For Brookfield Viscometers

Source: AMETEK Brookfield

Over the last 25 years, vane rheometry has been extensively used for yield stress measurements of non-Newtonian materials in varied systems. Advantages of the vane method include elimination of wall-slip effects, minimum disturbance to the sample, quick single point-in situ yield stress measurements, fewer problems from particulate materials, and reduced viscous heating due to larger gap size.
