Maximum conceivable flexibility: MetaStation 8 (E) & Metastation 16

The modern torque rheometers combine compactness with maximum flexibility: the drives cover an outstandingly wide range of applications, precisely fitting for a laboratory table. A floor standing model is available for applications that require higher torque and speed. The newly developed drive units have a modular design, allowing to connect larger mixers and extruders via a docking station or on the mixer support plate. Maximum scalability opens up the extensive range of compatible measuring heads, die heads and mixers.

  • Speed, torque and temperature
  • Properties and melt behaviour
  • Fusion behaviour
  • Heat and shear stability
  • Plasticizer absorption of PVC-dry blends
  • and much more
  • The measured values give an indication of the behaviour of the material during production and offer conclusions on its rheological properties.
  • Stored parameter sets can be used e.g. for recipe development further can be used.
  • The laboratory extrusion process is transferable to production.
  • Polymers
  • Ceramic materials
  • (Full) doughs and whipped masses
  • and much more
