HTR Compact: Rheometer autosampler for high sample throughput

The MCR rheometer automation platform in benchtop design

The HTR compact series offers automated sample handling and conditioning for rheological measurements with Anton Paar’s MCR 102 or MCR 302 rheometers in a lightweight benchtop design. HTR compact is the ideal choice for first-level rheology automation and offers high-throughput operation with 36 samples in two trays and 18 cups each. Add vials during operation with the sample drawer, while the rheometer and sample stage operate in parallel.

Key Features

High throughput in benchtop design

High throughput in benchtop design

HTR compact handles up to 36 liquid and pasty rheological samples in one run. This means that, depending on the measuring cycle, up to 250 samples in CC27 or smaller sample cups can be analyzed within one day. With the MCR 102 or MCR 302 rheometer used in HTR compact you can run your measurements in both rotating and oscillating mode.

Automation with lab accuracy

Automation with lab accuracy

By decoupling the rheometer and the automation platform, rheological measurement results with lab accuracy are achieved and no long-lasting adjustments of the rheometer are needed to compensate for vibrations. Moreover, the rheometer can also be used separated from the automation unit.

Additional modules for growing automation needs
