The Rheoline Multi-Function Rheometer (MFR) is our most innovative dynamic testing rheometer, designed to deliver reliable results to the most precise accuracies with an extensive range of test stages or operations. It is capable of fulfilling tasks of both a Moving Die Rheometer (MDR) and a Dynamic Shear Rheometer (DSR), providing vital analytical and statistical data of elastomeric properties to the finest detail, making this the ultimate choice for any polymer specialists.
The instrument can be used firstly at lower temperatures and frequencies to study the process of polymers, secondly as a standard MDR and thirdly as a dynamic mechanical analyser to evaluate the cured properties of materials. (See modes of operation).
This dynamic rubber testing instrument utilises a new generation In-line Servo Motor coupled with digital servo drive technology, together with our acquisition and analysis Labline Software; which has fantastic flexibility and provides a wide range of test conditions with unlimited’ test methods.
The temperature control of the dies is better than its rivals, giving an impressive variation of ± 0.03 °C from the set point. This instrument comes complete with an Air Cooling System as standard to assist the operation of a Temperature Sweep.
Modes of operation
This instrument comes with a set of pre-programmed tests and allows full flexibility giving the user complete control of the test stages. Tests can be in the form any of its modes of operation or a combination.
