New Modular Rheometers Offer Flexibility and Reduce User Error
Product News Jun 15, 2015
Material scientists in research and development, advanced quality control and academic research can now use an enhanced, modular rheometer platform to increase workflow efficiency and minimize operator error while analyzing the rheological properties of a broad range of samples.
The Thermo Scientific HAAKE MARS (Modular Advanced Rheometer System) 40 and 60 rheometers offer enhanced features to the existing line of accurate, user-friendly HAAKE MARS rheometers, allowing users to expand capabilities for future needs. The HAAKE MARS 40 and 60 rheometers are equipped with Connect Assist technology, first introduced with the Thermo Scientific HAAKE Viscotester iQ rheometer. The Connect Assist technology automatically detects measuring geometry accessories and temperature modules to deliver real-time feedback, making it easy for users to set up sample testing procedures with minimal errors. A push button, automatic geometry release system makes handling simple and convenient.
“The newest generation of HAAKE MARS rheometers is focused on ease of use and a high level of customization, allowing lab managers to respond to their specific testing applications,” said Birgit Schroeder, product line director, laboratory instruments, Material Characterization products for Thermo Fisher Scientific.
The HAAKE MARS 40 and 60 rheometers streamline workflows by offering application packages that bundle the rheometer with task-specific accessories for markets that include pharmaceutical, cosmetics, food, petrochemical and polymers.
The Thermo Scientific HAAKE MARS 40 and 60 rheometers also feature:
• A two-column modular design, allowing easy access for sample preparation with quick-fit accessory connections and measurement setup, including an intuitive display and control panel;
• Application-specific measuring cells and hybrid methods, such as MARS-FTIR coupling, to provide enhanced material characterization options; and
• Thermo Scientific HAAKE RheoWin software for easy rheometer operation, including all relevant measuring parameters required by experienced rheologists.
