Accessories

Designed for the rheological testing of complex fluids and soft solids, and gelling and curing materials.

Kinexus lab+

Peltier Plate Cartridge

Image

Environmental controller for cone-plate and parallel plate measuring systems.

The Peltier Plate cartridge for the Kinexus rheometer meets the temperature control requirements across the majority of applications from fluids through to soft solids, such as creams, pastes and gels.

Peltier Cylinder cartridge

Image

Environmental controller for concentric cylinder-type measuring systems.

The Peltier Cylinder cartridge for the Kinexus rheometer provides multifunctional configuration options to meet the temperature control requirements for measuring materials from highly fluid-like samples through to high concentration dispersions that show a yield stress. Can be configured for use with a range of accessories.

Active Hood Peltier Plate Cartridge

Image

Environmental controller with minimized thermal gradients for plate measuring systems.

The Active Hood Peltier Plate cartridge for the Kinexus rheometer uses a proprietary design to prevent thermal losses in the local sample environment, and hence minimize sample thermal gradients. Applicable to the measurement of highly thermally-sensitive samples, and for temperature-critical testing where the temperature range is significantly above or below ambient.

High temperature environmental controller for cone-plate and parallel plate measuring systems.

The HTC cartridge for the Kinexus rheometer meets the temperature control requirements across the majority of applications from fluids through to soft solids, such as creams, thermoset composites and polymer melts.

Torsion/Direct Mechanical Analysis

Image

The Kinexus Torsion/Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA) system is designed to work with the concentric cylinder system and allows solid samples (e.g. final product) to be tested directly. The system extends the current characterization capabilities of the Kinexus, allowing mechanical properties and material transitions to be evaluated as a function of time, temperature, stress and strain, in both dry and wet environments.

Three Point Bend/Direct Mechanical Analysis

Image

The Kinexus Three-Point Bend system takes advantage of the temperature control inside the active hood cartridge, and the unmatched axial performance of Kinexus to allow Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA) testing to be performed on solid materials. A solid strip of material is probed, typically with a small vertical oscillation in control displacement or controlled force mode to determine the mechanical properties.

Immersion Cell

Image

The immersion cell is designed to prevent samples from drying out during measurement. Samples (such as hydrogels) are immersed in a compatible liquid so to allow measurements to be conducted without drying influencing the results.

Film-Fibre Testing

Image

The Kinexus fibre-film fixture is designed to clamp a small film or fibre of material between upper and lower measuring systems to allow for axial/vertical testing on the sample. The system is designed to work with the Kinexus active hood cartridge which provides accurate temperature control of the sample. The advanced axial control system of Kinexus with unprecedented gap control and ultra-responsive normal force allows for axial oscillation testing by controlled force or displacement on both soft and stiff samples.

Immobilization and Dehydration Cell

Image

The Kinexus immobilization and dehydration cell allowing standard rheological testing to be performed as the sample is drying and is particularly useful for the evaluation of paints and coatings, for example. A vacuum is applied beneath a sintered/porous lower plate to draw liquid away from the sample over time, while simultaneously measuring the rheological properties of the sample.

Rheo-microscopy

The UV/Visible Transparent Borosilicate Glass plate used with the UV Curing System can also be configured with a microscope to allow microstructural changes to be observed during rheological testing.  The microscope is mounted underneath the quartz plate (directly below the sample) and allows processes such as the break-up of emulsion droplets, alignment of particulates or fibres in a flow field and/or imaging of shear flow or shear banding within a sample. The microscope is mounted underneath the quartz plate (directly below the sample).

Universal Container Holder

Image

The universal container holder enables you to test your samples within a custom container / beaker, which is particularly useful when analysing delicate samples or where you don’t want to disturb structure by removing from their container. The universal container is multi-functional, also serving as the base for the texture analysis geometries.
