ViscoIndicator

Specifically designed for the thermoplastics resin industry. The ViscoIndicator duplicates the test conditions of a laboratory Melt Flow Rate (MFR) tester or capillary rheometer. Melt viscosity measurements such as melt flow rate and Intrinsic viscosity are primary specifications of thermoplastic resins. 

  • Based on the proven technology of our successful ViscoSensor and CMR IV series
  • 1/2 -20 Mounting Port that is compatible with the standard pressure port on extruders
  • User Interface based on Windows™ 10 IoT allowing users to leverage familiar Microsoft services
  • Provides continuous indication of both Melt Flow Rate, Apparent and/or Intrinsic viscosity
  • Variety of heated material transfer line options available that enable rheological head to mount into tight spaces
  • One cable power cord and simple cable bundle with robust connectors for quick interconnection between RSU, RCU, and HMI -- ideal for self installation
  • Material is not returned to process stream
  • Comes standard with Dynisco Vertex™ Mercury Free Pressure transducer for high accuracy
  • Small footprint for easy set-up and integration into existing and/or new machinery
  • Quick changing of capillaries

Tech Notes

Detecting Polymers in Material Products

It can be very difficult, if not impossible, to achieve complete indentification of most polymer products. However, in most cases, this is usually not needed; what is needed is the separation, or identification, of numerous molding materials whose identity has been lost, or an indication of the type of material used to create a component.

Melt Processing of Thermoplastics for Extrusion and Injection Molding

Extrusion and injection molding are the most important conversion techniques used by the thermoplastics processing industry, Certain factors need to be considered before a thermoplastics material is processed, regardless of whether it is injection molding or extrusion molding that is used.
