Thermosel System

Viscosity Determination at Elevated Temperatures - The difficulty with viscosity measurement of hot melts and liquids at elevated temperatures has been in maintaining accurate temperature control that is consistent from sample to sample, so that meaningful data could be obtained.

The Brookfield Thermosel solves this problem by providing a stable, precisely controlled sample environment. Flexibility is the key word for the Brookfield Thermosel System. Whether you need an inexpensive means of batch sampling for routine Quality Control, or a sophisticated, programmable method for complete rheological studies, the Thermosel System can be tailored to meet your requirements. Thermosel provides a low-cost convenient method of obtaining viscosity measurements at elevated temperatures, safely and precisely, up to 300°C (572°F).

When used with any standard Brookfield Viscometer or Rheometer, the Brookfield Thermosel System offers viscosity determinations ranging from 5 cP to 80,000,000 cP depending on choice of spindle. Also available for use with Thermosel is DIN spindle geometry. If you already own a Brookfield Viscometer, its versatility can be extended by the use of the Thermosel as an accessory item.

UL Adapter

Ideal For Low Viscosity Materials
The Brookfield UL Adapter accessory has been developed for use with Brookfield Viscometers to allow accurate and reproducible viscosity measurements to be made on low viscosity materials. Newtonian and Non-Newtonian materials can be measured.

The adapter is usable with any model Viscometer or Rheometer except the cone/plate instrument. It is most commonly used with the LV Series (at 60 RPM, these models have a full scale range of 1-10 cps with the Adapter).

Cylindrical geometry
The UL Adapter consists of a precision cylindrical spindle rotating inside an accurately machined tube. Its rheologically correct cylindrical geometry provides extremely accurate viscosity measurements and shear rate determinations.

Measures either small or large samples
The tube has a removable end cap. With the cap removed the open ended tube can be used in a beaker or tank. With the cap in place the closed tube holding a 16 ml sample can be immersed in a temperature bath. Working temperature range is from -15°C to 100°C.

Easily cleaned
All immersed parts are stainless steel. The removable cap of low density polyethylene can be considered disposable for one-time use if required.

DIN Adapter Accessory
Additional DIN spindles providing measurement ranges from 1.0 cP up to 50,000 cP conforming to DIN 53019 are available upon request.

Brookfield Small Sample Adapter

  • For rheological evaluation of materials where sample volume is limited
  • Sample chamber easily changed
  • Flow jacket allows temperature control

The Small Sample Adapter, consisting of a cylindrical sample chamber and spindle, provides a defined system for accurate viscosity measurements of small sample volumes in the order of 2 to 16 ml.

Removable sample chamber
The design of the Small Sample Adapter allows the sample chamber to be easily changed and cleaned without disturbing the set-up of the viscometer or temperature bath. This means that successive measurements can be made under identical conditions.

The Small Sample Adapter is shown here mounted on a Brookfield Viscometer with a Brookfield Model TC-150MX Constant Temperature Bath.


Temperature control - The sample chamber fits into a flow jacket so that precise temperature control can be achieved when a temperature bath is used. The stirring action of the rotating spindle, plus the small sample volume helps keep the temperature gradient across the sample to a minimum. Direct readout of sample temperature is provided using sample chambers with embedded RTD sensors connected to the DVII+, DVIII or the Digital Temperature Indicator. Working temperature range is from -15°C to 100°C.

Cylindrical geometry - The Small Sample Adapter’s rheologically correct cylindrical geometry provides extremely accurate viscosity measurements and shear rate determinations.The Brookfield Small Sample Adapter is supplied with one spindle and sample chamber, flow jacket, mounting bracket, and all necessary hardware. Please specify spindle and chamber when ordering (see range data).

Options:
Embedded RTD Temperature Probe in sidewall of sample chamber and DIN Spindle geometry

Helipath Stand

Helipath Stand

Successful Viscosity/Consistency Measurements of Gels, Pastes and Other Non-Flowing Substances - The Brookfield Helipath Stand, when used with a suitable Brookfield Viscometer/Rheometer fitted with a special T-bar type spindle, will permit viscosity/consistency measurements in relative centipoise values of materials having characteristics similar to paste, putty, cream, gelatin, or wax.

Many substances, because of the nature of their yield values, have previously been considered unsuited for viscosity or consistency measurements with rotational Viscometers. Any rotating member, be it cylinder, disc, or paddle, will create a “channel” in such substances and after a very short time exert a negligible and meaningless torque on any sensing device. This effect also occurs with materials that have a gel structure.

Paint dyes, lithographic inks, and many other substances are thixotropic in that their structure is broken down and their viscosity is decreased when subjected to internal shearing. While no rotating member will ever spin freely in such materials, the torque required to produce this motion will become less as the period of internal shearing lengthens. The study of such data will lead to difficulties and necessarily rigid testing procedures in product control work.

Other materials, notably pastes and creams, show a combination of the two effects listed above. They will show a yield value as well as a change in relative viscosity/consistency with time.


The Brookfield Helipath Stand is designed to slowly lower or raise a Brookfield Viscometer so that its rotating shearing element will describe a helical path through the test sample. By always cutting into fresh material the problem of “channeling” or separating is eliminated and meaningful viscosity/consistency measurements can be made. The reversing feature of the Helipath Stand allows measurements to be made over a variable period of time.

The Helipath Stand can be used with any Brookfield Viscometer and DV3T Rheometer, and is supplied complete with a set of six T-Bar Spindles and a special coupling. Also available with EZ-lock option - call for pricing.

EZ-Lock Spindle Coupling System

Improves Viscosity Testing Speed and Efficiency! - Quickly and more safely change spindles with this spring-loaded spindle coupling attachment. Attach the EZ-Lock Spindle Coupling to a spindle and insert the spindle into the chuck. That’s it! Changing spindles has never been quicker or easier...making this the perfect option for busy labs with multiple samples to test. EZ-Lock can be purchased as an option for new DV-1M and DV2T Viscometers as well as the DV3T Ultra Rheometer. It can also be retrofitted to your existing DV-I and DV-II series Viscometer as well as any of your DV-III series Rheometers.

EZ-Lock is also available for use with your favorite Brookfield accessories such as the Thermosel and Helipath Stand as well as the following adapters: Small Sample Adapter, UL Adapter, UL Adapter, Enhanced UL Adapter and DIN Adapter.*

*Special brackets may be required to accommodate the length of the EZ-Lock system; requirement can be determined at time of ordering.


To order, add the suffix EZ to the viscometer or rheometer item number you would like to have with this feature. Please call for pricing.

 

Quick Action Lab Stand

top
EZ-Lock Spindle Coupling System

 

Optional accessory for Dial, DV-E, DV-1M, DV2T & DV3T - Taking measurements has never been so fast or easy. With the push of a button, the instrument moves up and down the lab stand, quicker and easier than ever before. The lab stand rod is now covered by an accordion bellows design that protects the operator from contacting moving parts during the up/down movement of the instrument head.

The Quick Action Lab Stand is perfect for busy lab environments, especially those with multiple operators or mulitple samples. This stand is available as an option for new Dial, DV-E, DV-1M, DV2T Viscometers and DV3T Rheometer and is also compatible with existing models.


Ball Bearing Suspension Option

top
If your viscometer or rheometer is used by multiple operators or in a busy lab environment, a more durable ball bearing suspension system may help keep your instrument in calibration longer with less “down time”. This option can be ordered at the time of purchase and a retrofit to existing instruments may be available.

Note: This option is for the torque ranges of RV, HA and HB only. - it is NOT available for instruments in the LV torque range.

Please contact us for further details and pricing
