Furnace Rheometer System FRS 1600

Materials of regular use in everyday life, such as glasses and metals, are processed or refined as melts at temperatures above 1000 °C. To ensure a consistent high quality of the final product and to optimize this energy-intensive process, knowledge about the melt viscosity is of great importance.The Furnace Rheometer System (FRS 1600) combines a rheometer and a lab furnace for viscosity measurements of melts at temperatures up to 1600 °C.
