Electrorheology

The Electro-Rheological Device (ERD) is used in combination with MCR rheometers to investigate the influence of an electric field on electrorheological fluids (ERF). The applied electric field (up to 12.5 kV) is controlled by the rheometer software and can be adjusted according to requirements. The temperature of the concentric cylinder and parallel-plate setups is controlled by Peltier elements.
