The Partners that Rheology Solutions work with are at the forefront of materials characterisation technology and product development. They are;
OnLine Rheometer Group
Rheology Solutions established a dedicated OnLine Rheometer Group in July 2011. The goal of this group is to develop and commercialise an OnLine Rheometer (OLR) to meet the process monitoring, process control and quality control needs across various industry applications
The OLR has been developed and manufactured by Rheology Solutions and is designed to continuously measure, plot and report the flow
properties of process liquids in the pipe.
The OLR is designed to continuously measure, plot and report the flow properties of process liquids in the pipe. The OLR will provide instant and accurate rheological data in real time so that manufactured and processed products are produced and maintained within specification.
The OLR is designed for use in a process pipe, and it continuously measures and relays the data to the process operator through SOLR,
their proprietary software for the OLR. Rheology Solutions have expanded their product portfolio to include:
• Product Development
• International Distribution.
Marimex Industries Corp
Marimex Industries Corp specialise in the production of torsional motion process viscometers, and have many successful installations worldwide within chemical, petrochemical, pharmaceutical and food industries. They have many years of experience with process viscosity measurements which allows users to measure the most difficult and demanding applications. Together with their customers Marimex determines the measurement requirements and work towards a constructive solution for each application. The selected instrument configuration assures a quick and effective solution for each project.
Optical Control Systems
Optical Control Systems (OCS) supplies customised and complete solutions in the fields of digital image processing, optical measurement and automation. The systems ensure maximum product quality control, and with the aid of precision cameras in conjunction with high performance online image processing, the smallest defects in polymer products are detected, located and analysed in detail. The applications for OCS systems range from laboratory use to complete integration into the production process. OCS has a stated goal of providing the polymer industry with quality control systems that are optimised with regard to production and purpose, and offer complete solutions with robust and up-todate technology.
The Schleibinger range of testing systems is specifically designed for the testing of construction materials such as cement paste, mortar, fine concrete, plaster etc. The range includes rotational viscometers, compact viscometers, freeze/thaw units, shrinkage cones and shrinkage/expansion units.
Thermo Scientific – Materials Characterisation
Thermo Fisher Scientific, one of the pioneers in rheology, successfully supports a wide range of industries with its comprehensive material characterisation instrumentation and equipment, to analyse and measure viscosity, elasticity, processability and temperature-related mechanical changes of plastics, food, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and coatings, chemical or petrochemical products, plus a wide variety of other liquids or solids.
Thermo Scientific – Temperature Control
As an innovative leader in temperature control, they have the expertise to enable you to optimise your liquid cooling and heating applications while increasing productivity and reducing operating costs.
