AMETEK Brookfield will be presenting on viscosity and texture as part of PITTCON’s Live Demo programme.
Live Demo is an opportunity for show attendees to learn more about a variety of measurement instrumentation and techniques. All demos are 20 minutes long with lively interactive sessions designed to help save time, discover new possibilities or get better results.
AMETEK Brookfield’s presentation will be held at 1pm on March 6 in Live Demo Area 1 to discuss Viscosity vs. Texture Analysis for Slow - Flowing Materials. Viscosity tests for slow-flowing materials such as thick salad dressings, tooth paste, grease, adhesives, etc. require a special spindle that can rotate in the material without over-torqueing the instrument. T-bars, vanes and spiral spindles have been designed for that very purpose. Texture Analysers use penetration tests with ball and wire mesh probes to provide similar data on flow behaviour.
Which approach is more useful, and how does R&D decide which method to implement for a practical QC test? The Live Demo aims to find out. Admittance is free with your PITTCON badge, and there is no need to pre-register You would be amazed what you can learn in just 20 minutes.
