Ball Measuring System

The Ball Measuring System (BMS) is used to measure the flow properties of samples with very large particles, such as building materials (cement, concrete, plaster) and foods. The measuring principle, developed by Müller-Thyrach, is based on an excentrically rotating sphere which is available in various diameters. Due to the outstanding motor control of RheolabQC and the MCR rheometer series, a full flow and viscosity curve can be recorded in one single revolution of the measuring system.
