Rheometers measure the rheological properties of materials, how they flow and deform in relation to applied force.
Rheometers have wider capabilities than viscometers, which are limited to measuring the viscosity of fluids under certain conditions. A rheometer, on the other hand, can measure both viscosity and elasticity under a wide range of conditions.
There are various types of rheometer:
• Dynamic rotational
Rheometers can test for the following properties:
• Yield stress
• Extensional viscosity
• Creep compliance
• Stress relaxation
They are ideal for testing complex types of non-Newtonian fluids, including plastics and pseudoplastics.
They have a broad range of industrial and quality control applications, testing materials such as paints and inks, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, oil and petroleum, and food and drink.

The Viscotester iQ is a modular and intuitive rheometer, designed with maximum flexibility for all viscosity requirements. One instrument covers a wide viscosity range (0.1 – 60,000,000 cPs) and has 6 different measuring geometries including standard spindles and cone and plate, Peltier or water bath temperature control, stand alone or software control, plus a small footprint. Available with ball bearing suspension for routine applications or air bearing when additional senstitivity is required.
