The exciting new MFR 2100 Micro Fourier Rheometer has redefined the state-of-the-art in rheological analysis.

The exciting new MFR 2100 Micro Fourier Rheometer has redefined the state-of-the-art in rheological analysis.

This groundbreaking product has revolutionized the traditional rheometer market due to the significant benefits offered by its ability to analyse very small volumes and perform analyses across a wide frequency range in seconds.

While traditional rheometers use a twisting motion at a single frequency, the MFR 2100 applies a patented pseudo-random squeezing motion to a sample. The complex visco-elastic properties are extracted across a wide frequency range in seconds at high resolution using Fourier analysis.

This makes the MFR 2100 excellent for measuring the visco-elastic properties of materials that are changing rapidly with time. An example of this is in the paint industry or in the adhesives industry where the visco-elastic properties of samples that are curing are desirable.

Traditional rheometers also require large volumes of sample. The MFR 2100 can perform analyses on volumes to less than 100 mL hence analyses on precious samples can be performed. An example where the MFR 2100 has been used is the analysis of Human Tears.

The automated sample introduction system enables sample introduction and subsequent cleaning in seconds.

The MFR 2100 has already been used in the analysis of inks, biological fluids, cosmetics, polymers, adhesives, paints, food and petroleum products.

Because of the uniqueness of the MFR 2100 many applications, which have not previously even been thought of using a rheometer, can be performed using the MFR 2100.

The powerful Windows software enables graphical representation of all rheological properties on the same screen.
