R/S Plus Soft Solids Tester

Features:

  • Vane spindle geometry allows spindle insertion without compromising sample structure
  • Easy-to-test method for materials with particulates, slurries, and stiff pastes
  • Provides data that relates to viscoelastic characteristics such as yield stress, shear modulus (stiffness of material structure when intact) and creep
  • Quantifies meaningful properties like wobbliness, sloppiness, consistency and texture
  • Automated data analysis under PC control
  • Rugged design for years of trouble-free operation in QC and R&D applications
  • Can also be used with coaxial cylinders for flow curve analysis
  • Optional Rheo3000 software with Soft Solids Module allows you to program the R/S Plus Soft Solids Tester and generate data such as yield point, shear modulus, creep and relaxation

 

Principle of Operation

The flow properties of these materials are not easily measured using traditional coaxial cylinder or cone & plate equipment. Vane spindle geometry provides a solution. The vane spindle is lowered into the test sample with minimal disruption. The test is easily run in the sample's original container.

There are two significant Test Methods easily accomplished by the Soft Solids Tester:

    1. Constant Rate Yield Test
    2. The Creep/Recovery Test
