Rheological Measuring Systems

In order to cover many different applications, a wide range of measuring systems are available for RheolabQC and the MCR rheometer series. QuickConnect gives great ease-of-use when changing between measuring systems. This quick-fit coupling allows one-handed connection of the measuring systems and ensures fast, convenient system changes without the use of a screwing mechanism. Toolmaster™ is the only completely contact-free automatic tool recognition and configuration system for measuring systems and temperature control units.

Key Features

For RheolabQC, the MCR x2 and MCR xx2 series

Concentric cylinder systems (according to DIN EN ISO 3219 and DIN 53019)

  • For viscous liquids up to viscoelastic liquids (from water-like samples up to semi-solid samples like crèmes)
  • Easy handling (e.g. filling)
  • Good thermal stability
  • Optional: Disposable cup version for some coaxial systems available to reduce cleaning efforts (e.g. to measure asphalt)

Double-gap measuring systems (according to DIN 54453)

  • For samples with a very low viscosity (water-like)
  • Onset of turbulence only at very high shear rates
  • Large surface
  • Good thermal stability

Vane geometries and spindles

  • Especially if samples contain particles (>0.1 mm) and tend to sediment (like dispersions)
  • Different vane geometries and spindles depending on the application available (for example starch solutions, yogurt containing particles)

Krebs spindles (according to ASTM D562)

  • Krebs measuring system especially designed for the needs of the paint, building, and mining industries
  • Krebs unit range: 40 KU to 150 KU
  • Can be easily combined with the flexible cup holder

For the MCR x2 and MCR xx2 series only

Cone-plate measuring systems (according to DIN EN ISO 3219 and DIN 53019)

  • Consistent shear conditions
  • Small sample volume required
  • Fast temperature equilibration
  • Only if the particle size is ˂10 µm
  • Easy to clean

Parallel-plate measuring systems (according to ISO 6721-10 and DIN 53019)

  • Recommended for highly viscous materials, gels, and pastes
  • Very low sample volume required
  • Adjustable gap
  • Easy to clean
