Wells-Brookfield Cone/Plate Viscometer

The Wells-Brookfield Cone/Plate Viscometer/Rheometer provides a wide variety of shear rates and viscosity ranges, which can be further extended by the use of interchangeable cone spindles. Different models can be selected to meet the specific range of viscosities and shear rates required. This geometry gives researchers a sophisticated instrument for routinely determining absolute viscosity of fluids in small sample volumes.

Shear rates as high as 1,875 sec-1 (DV3T) can be achieved. The small sample volume required permits rheological evaluations to be made on materials where sample availability is limited, such as biological fluids and thick film coatings that contain precious metals. All wetted parts are stainless steel for corrosion resistance and ease of cleaning.

Wells-Brookfield Cone/Plate Digital Viscometers/Rheometers are now supplied with an advanced Electronic Gap Setting feature. This technology allows faster set-up time and minimizes the possibility of gap adjustment errors.
