VISUAL MICROFLUIDIC RHEOMETER
Fluidicam RHEO is an innovative optical rheometer for accurate viscosity analysis even for very liquid samples. The flow visualization in a microfluidic channel presents multiple benefits to rheology determination: strong confinement offers high shear rate analysis, small sample volume requirements and extremely fast temperature adjustments.
MICROSTRUCTURE THERMAL ANALYZER
Rheolaser CRYSTAL analyzes phase transition of complex materials containing oils, fat, waxes, polymers… It directly measures smallest change (nanometer scale) in microstructure during phase transition. Thanks to the non-invasive optical method, a precise and sensitive study is possible. Measuring the structure on a macroscopic sample (from 0.05g to 5g) overcomes general issues with sample heterogeneities. It also reduces the risk of damaging the structure during the sampling. Temperature cycles and accelerated aging tests can be performed thanks to fast temperature control. This is particularly interesting when characterizing finished products like oil formulations, lipsticks... to detect at early stage fat exudation, polymorphism, or even chocolate blooming.
HIGH-THROUGHPUT STABILITY ANALYZER
High throughput screening is more and more useful to shorten the formulations time-to-market. Turbiscan AGS integrates the Turbiscan LAB stability analyzer, a robot, a storage station, and smart software for automatic sample handling and reporting. This concept enables automated management of aging tests from sample storage at different temperatures to shelf-life analysis.
THE WORLD REFERENCE STABILITY ANALYZER
TurbiscanLAB enables fast and sensitive identification of destabilization mechanisms (such as creaming, sedimentation, flocculation, coalescence...). A temperature-controlled measurement cell allows either stability monitoring at specific storage temperatures or accelerating destabilization process. TurbiscanLAB can be used in both R&D and QC labs for development and routine control of raw materials and final product formulations. The instrument not only detects stability evolution at an early stage, up to 200 times faster compared to visual testing but also quantifies global formula alteration with TSI scale.
MULTI SAMPLE STABILITY ANALYZER
Turbiscan TOWER is the new flagship product of the Turbiscan range for full characterization of the dispersion stability of concentrated formulations (emulsions, suspensions, foams). 6 independent measurement positions allow simultaneous comparison of formulations for faster and better understanding of destabilization mechanisms (creaming, sedimentation, flocculation, coalescence..). Dispersion Analysis can be performed from 4 to 80°C to accelerate the destabilization process or to reproduce storage conditions. An improved mechanical design and vertical set-up offer better performance and smaller bench footprint.
OPTICAL FILM FORMATION ANALYZER
Rheolaser COATING enables simple and sensitive monitoring of microstructure evolution during a film formation process. The instrument precisely identifies open time, touch-dry time, dry- hard time or curing time... Without any contact with the sample, it is possible to characterize various products, such as coatings: paints, inks; polishes, resins. The open set-up allows the use of any kind of substrate: glass, metal, ceramic...
VISCOELASTIC PROPERTIES DETERMINATION
RHEOLASER Master has been designed to monitor the evolution of the rheological properties, such as viscoelasticity change versus aging time, or sol-gel transition with high precision thanks to the Time Cure Superposition method. MS-DWS technology provides high sensitivity to the smallest structure change with no contact and easy sample handling method.
Turbiscan Classic 2
COMPACT & ROBUST STABILITY ANALYZER
Turbiscan CLASSIC 2 offers fast identification and monitoring of destabilization mechanisms (creaming, sedimentation, flocculation, coalescence...). Turbiscan CLASSIC 2 can be used in both R&D and QC labs for development and routine control of raw materials and final product formulations. The instrument detects stability evolution at an early stage, up to 200 times faster compared to visual testing. Various formulations (emulsions, suspensions or foams) can be studied even at high concentrations without any sample preparation or dilution.
Turbiscan Lab Oil Series
STABILITY ANALYZER FOR CRUDE & FUEL OILS – ASTM D7061
Turbiscan® is used world-wide to detect at an early stage all kinds of destabilization such as coalescence, flocculation, creaming, sedimentation, etc... Turbiscan® Oil Series allows the stability analysis of heavy fuel oil thanks to an innovative method granted ASTM D7061.
