Thermo Scientific HAAKE RheoStress 6000

This application package – HAAKE RheoStress 6000 “Measurements at higher pressures” has been created for the determination of the pressure-dependent rheological characteristics of a sample.

The universal rheometer Thermo Scientific HAAKE RheoStress 6000 is designed to perform rheological tests in CR (controlled rate) mode as well as CS (controlled stress) and CD (controlled deformation). Thanks to a liquid or electric temperature control unit, precise and fast temperature control of the sample can be achieved. Different versions of pressure cells are available: a version for standard applications made of stainless steel as well as a Hastelloy version to test chemically aggressive samples. The standard version can be pressurised up to 400 bar using a suitable pump whereas the upper pressure limit of the Hastelloy version is 70 bar. Both pressure cells are designed for temperatures up to 300 °C. A variety of measuring geometries is available for different applications: cylindrical rotors with different diameters for homogeneous samples and vane rotors for suspensions with larger particles [1].
With the configurations described above, the pressure and/ or temperature dependency of the sample can be easily monitored, e.g. the rheological behaviour of crude oil and drilling fluids as well as food products can be monitored directly under real-life conditions to improve performance in the respective application.
