Online Rheometer (Viscosensor)

Features and Benefits

  • Attaches to process using a single M18
  • Cost effective solution for on-line viscosity or melt index monitoring
  • No waste stream, tested sample is returned to process
  • On-line ASTM D1238 melt flow rate
  • On-line apparent viscosities
  • Replaceable capillary
  • Compact measuring head for close extruder connection: 8″ diameter by 17″ length
  • Robust and precise pressure transducer for high accuracy

Specifically designed for the thermoplastics resin industry, the ViscoSensor provides continuous measurements of the melt flow rate or apparent viscosity directly on the manufacturing process. The ViscoSensor system consists of two parts: a Viscosensor, connected directly to the process, which samples, conditions, and measures the melt flow of the resin, and a VCU (ViscoSensor Control Unit) that controls the Viscosensor test parameters (temperature, pressure, rate), provides outputs of computed results, and provides communications to an external distributed control system when required.
