Instruments for rheology experiments


Go beyond the textbook. Engage and motivate your students with hands-on access to real-world rheology experiments. The Thermo Scientific HAAKE Viscotester iQ Rheometer is the perfect teaching tool, offering high performance, intuitive touchscreen control, and portability. This easy to operate instrument gets students started with comprehensive rheology testing in rotation or oscillation mode. The Viscotester iQ or iQ Air Rheometers are ideal for universities who are training future rheologists interested in studying the science of how materials behave.
