High Temperature Rheometer System FRS1600

The High Temperature Rheometer System in the Advanced Steel Research Centre is used to carry out viscosity measurements especially suitable for materials with high melting point. The FRS1600 consists of a rotational rheometer using a Double Concentric Cylinder, the first includes the molten material and the second creates the shear stress. The attached furnace goes up to 1520 °𝐶 after calibration. Viscosity is a physical property that characterises the fluidity of a liquid.
