Technologies Limited has supplied a top-of-the-range ACR 2100 capillary
extrusion rheometer to Gammadot thus increasing our capacity to provide
viscosity measurements over a wide range of temperatures and shear rates.
extrusion rheometer is a very accurately controlled piston-driven extruder
which allows the test material to be expressed at a series of user-defined
speeds through precision engineered orifices or dies, and the pressure
generated at each speed is recorded. The characteristic graph or rheogram
is useful for predicting processing behaviour and may also be used to
deduce information about the specimen’s chemical and physical
nature. As such, it is an extremely useful tool for analyzing and trouble-shooting
Carter, MD of Celsum, “We are extremely pleased to be able to
help Gammadot to enhance their established range of rheological testing
services with the addition of this fine instrument. The ACR 2100 rheometer
has a maximum pressure capability of 30,000 psi (2100 bars) and maximum
temperature of 450°C, allowing many types of materials to be tested
under realistic processing conditions. As well as shear viscosity, the
ACR 2100 may be used to determine extensional viscosity, pressure coefficient
of viscosity, no-flow temperature, and other process relevant parameters.”
Principal of Gammadot said, “I am delighted that we have a new
capillary rheometer to add to our current suite of test equipment. This
will expand the range of contract research and testing services that
we can offer our customers, and will greatly assist our development”.

newsletter we announced that Gammadot's Monsanto R100 oscillating
die cure rheometer was to be fully refurbished to include the
replacement of the original chart recorder with a bespoke PC-based
data logger system. Work began in January and phase one of the
software is written with plans to complete programming & calibration
/ commissioning of the kit within the next quarter.

expertise is based primarily in the rheological characterisation of elastomers
and thermoplastic melts, although we have experience with many other materials
covering: bitumens, industrial sealants, oils, greases, paints, PVA, hot
melt adhesives and food additives to name but a few!
We also have many years experience in providing materials characterisation
data support for proprietary flow simulation software packages such as
Moldflow, Sigmasoft 3D and the now discontinued Fillcalc & C-Mold
