  • Ideal for flow ratio measurements
  • On-line apparent viscosities over broad shear rate range
  • On-line measurements of polymer extensional properties
  • Customer specified solutions
  • Compact measuring head for close extruder connection
  • A range of metering pump sizes for specific applications
  • Simple “in the field” calibration
  • Systems for hazardous locations


Dynisco’s FCR (Flow Characterization Rheometer) is specifically designed for the thermoplastics resin industry, and provides continuous measurements of the melt flow or apparent viscosity directly on the manufacturing process. The FCR system consists of two parts, the Rheometer, connected directly to the process, which samples, conditions and measures the flow of the molten resin through two separate dies, and the RCU (Rheometer Control Unit) that controls the rheometer test parameters, takes in data from the measurement head, and provides outputs of computed results. Analog, serial and digital communications provide signals to an external distributed control system. The FCR can be configured to measure dual melt flow rates, simultaneous MFR and apparent viscosities, a range of apparent shear viscosities, and extensional viscosities using the Cogswell Equations.
