Rotational Rheometers from Malvern Instruments
The Malvern line of controlled strain and stress rheometers offers unprecedented capabilities for understanding the complex rheological properties from fluid-like to semi-solid and solid materials.
Malvern Kinexus ‘redefines the rheometer’
Radical new platform designed from the ground up delivers intelligent rheology solutions
Designed entirely from the ground up, Kinexus redefines the rheometer. It enables users to spend less time learning how to interact with their system and more time investigating ways to characterize and enhance a material’s performance.
Kinexus incorporates technological innovations in the most critical areas of rheometer design, from sample preparation and loading, through measurement set-up and operation, to data analysis and reporting. Adaptive intelligence allows Kinexus to actively guide users at every stage.
Fully integrated into Malvern’s materials characterization range, Kinexus delivers high performance measurement supported worldwide by experts in rheology applications, and informed by the company’s expertise in complex materials, including particulate, macromolecular and multiphase systems.
Kinexus is highly flexible and easy to expand, ready for further evolution as new applications emerge. A true applications-led interface revolutionises and eases user interaction, bringing ‘expert system’ guidance and Standard Operating Procedure-driven processes to rheological measurement. At the same time a unique and intelligent sample loading system takes all the guesswork and error out of this fundamental and critically important process, for accurate results every time.
Plug and play
Newly-designed environmental controllers and geometries for Kinexus are truly ‘plug and play’, so setting up the rheometer to meet test requirements has never been easier. Results and analysis can be tailored specifically to a particular measurement, material type or application.
Still available is the proven Gemini and Gemini HR Nano
The Gemini HR Nano rheometer is optimized for nano-torque control of ultra-low torques, and opens up new opportunities to probe weak or sensitive material structures and low viscosity systems.
Like all previous Bohlin High Resolution rheometers, the new Bohlin Gemini HR nano offers advanced technology with straightforward operation. While enabling the measurement and control of nano-torque levels, it retains a continuous working torque range to 200 mNm allowing complete rheological characterization. Allied to the most sensitive normal force measurement available, the Gemini HR nano offers the ultimate in instrument capabilities for weakly-structured systems.
Using Malvern’s state-of-the-art air bearing design coupled with its patented Rotonetic™ 2 DSP drive system the Bohlin Gemini HR nano offers unsurpassed range and sensitivity and allows torque and speed control across all steady, dynamic and transient test modes. Both strain controlled and stress controlled tests can be performed with ease.
