For the controlled temperature chamber (CTC) a new plate/plate measuring geometry has been developed.
The plate measuring geometry available from Rheology Solutions consists of an upper shaft and a lower shaft with an integrated temperature sensor.
By using the supplied press tool, an exact perpendicular alignment and reproducible mounting of the disposable plates on the shafts is guaranteed.
The standard aluminium plates have a diameter of 20mm. Plates with other diameters are available on request. It is recommended to use the optionally available sample collection ring in order to protect the temperature chamber against spilled sample material.
After a measurement the disposable plates are easily removed from the holders by using the supplied removal tool.
