What is a Rheometer?
A rheometer is a laboratory device used to measure the way in which a viscous fluid flows in response to applied forces.

Can a rheometer measure density?
We present a combined approach to measure density using a Modular Compact Rheometer with normal force control up to 1730 °C, maintaining full rheometric functionality.
This enables sequential or simultaneous characterization of high-temperature liquids for multiple thermophysical properties.
What are the advantages of a rheometer?
Though more expensive than viscometers, Rheometers are more versatile and have a much wider dynamic range of control and measurement parameters.
A rheometer allows far greater characterization of flow, deformation, and even the tackiness of a material (for Newtonian and non-Newtonian materials).
How many types of rheometers are there?
Rheometers can be of two types: controlled-stress and controlled-strain rheometers. A controlled-stress rheometer applies torque to control the stress at a desired level or drive the strain to a desired amount.
