The Instron line of CEAST Rheology systems are used to measure the rheological properties of thermoplastics to characterize the polymer melt flow behavior in the process conditions. This is achieved through a broad range of rheology systems – from Melt Flow Testers to Capillary Rheometers.

Capillary Rheometers

These bench top capillary rheometers are suitable for both Quality Control and Research & Development laboratories. Their two-column main frame construction guarantees maximum performance. With a velocity ratio of 1:500,000 corresponding to a piston speed of 0.0024 to 1200 mm/min, they perform tests with unlimited steps at constant shear rate or constant speed. Meets ISO, ASTM and equivalent standards.

Melt Flow Testers

The Instron® modular line of CEAST Melt Flow Testers measure, with great accuracy, the MFR and MVR - basic data required for thermoplastic quality control in the rheology field.
