Type of equipment:High Temperature Viscometer.
Technical description/model and performance:TA-Instruments VIS403HF rotational viscometer.
Field of application:The apparatus is used to determine the viscosity of liquids at temperatures of up to 1700C. The usable viscosity range is 10-10^7.5 Pa.s. The has in the chamber can be air or an inert gas.
Basic Mode of Operation:A rotating cylinder is lowered into the liquid and the torsion is measured. The rotation speed can be varied. The sample crucible consists of PtRh 80/20 and has a diameter of 23 mm and a height of 55 mm. Heating is achieved via induction.
Location:Located at the TEC-Lab, KBC6.
Access to the instrument:The instrument can be used for individual samples and smaller series subject to open time slots and availability of the TEC-Lab operating personnel.
