Viscotester IQ

HAAKE Viscotester iQ Rheometer

Manufactured By: Thermo Fisher Scientific

The Thermo Scientific HAAKE Viscotester iQ Rheometer enables you to measure and analyse the rheological properties of a wide range of different samples. Increase efficiency and minimise the risk of operators error.

With the HAAKE Viscotester iQ Rheometer provides an intelligent solution for daily rheological challenges.  Designed for intuitive operation, the HAAKE Viscotester iQ Rheometer adapts to individual measurement requirements in laboratories focused on Quality Control (QC).

The HAAKE Viscotester iQ Rheometer sets new standard in modularity, ease of use and intelligent user guidance. It is the instrument of choice for simple viscosity determination as well as complex rheological investigations from low viscous liquids to stiff pastes and semi-solids. Used as a standalone unit or fully software controlled, it’s compact size and small footprint makes the Viscotester iQ Rheometer a portable unit for mobile use or a major tool in quality control laboratories.

Ideal for Quality Control in:

Food Industry
Mineral Slurries
Pharmaceutical & Cosmetics
Surface Coatings

The new HAAKE Viscotester iQ Rheometer features include:

Universal “Plug n’ Play” temperature modules – Peltier or Liquid controlled
A compact and robust design enables a fast, reliable and accurate temperature control
Small dimensional coaxial cylinders for less sample volume and shorter temperature times to minimise costs per measurement
Switching between coaxial cylinders and parallel plates in seconds
Optimal material selection guarantees fast temperature equilibration and enables rapid temperature changes
