To complement disposable Thermosel chambers, Brookfield Engineering Laboratories is offering disposable spindles. With disposable spindles users eliminate time-consuming cleanup, improving efficiency and productivity in the lab.

Brookfield says its disposable spindles are ideal for use in the asphalt industry making it possible to satisfy SHRP and ASTM requirements quickly and efficiently. Disposable Thermosel spindles are also recommended for testing hot melts, waxes, and polymers, where the cleanup is difficult.

These disposable Thermosel spindles can be used in lieu of the SC4-27 spindle. They are supplied in packages of 100 and require a special adapter for connection to the viscometer/rheometer.

Ink viscometer fits between pump and press

The newest addition to the Brookfield range of process viscometers is the AST100 viscosity sensor. Specifically designed for the measurement and control of printing inks the AST100 can be installed directly into the pipe between the pump and the press. The instrument has no moving parts and is also ATEX approved for use in hazardous areas, claimed the company.
