MIDDLEBORO, MA | The Brookfield DV-III Ultra Rheometer now features USB connectivity. Company’s applications software, Rheocalc and Rheoloader, has been upgraded to recognize this new communications capability. Customers who already have a DV-III Ultra or DV-III+ Rheometer can arrange to have their instrument retrofitted with this new capability by contacting their local dealer.
The DV-III Ultra combines the sophisticated features of a rheometer with the yield stress measurement capability of company’s YR-1 Yield Test Rheometer. The company reports that this “all-in-one” tool is the most powerful and versatile value in the marketplace today, allowing the operator to easily predict a material’s complete flow behavior.
In stand-alone mode the operator enters test parameters, temperature control requirements, starts the program, and the results are displayed on the built-in display. The DV-III Ultra also provides built-in math models for data analysis.
Optional Rheocalc32 Software lets the operator control all aspects of rheological testing directly from their computer. They can analyze data, generate multiple plot overlays, print tabular data, run math models, and perform other time-saving routines. Data can be saved in the program or exported to Excel. Using optional vane spindles with DV-III Ultra, the operator can create test programs to measure yield behavior, performing true static yield tests.
