Lab Services

At Rheology Central, our expertise is in characterizations of both Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids and soft solids as a function of shear rate, strain, temperature, frequency, and time. We perform both steady shear and oscillatory measurements. Soft solids and gels are our specialty with the various industries ranging form cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and fabrication.

Our industrial experience is in emulsions, dispersions, gels, and other complex formulations, including raw materials and commercial products. Frequently, our objective working with clients is to understand and quantify rheological properties/product performance characteristics.

Our services include:

  • Steady shear viscosity measurements
    • Shear dependence
    • Time dependence
  • Oscillatory rheology – Viscoelasticity measurements
    • Frequency sweeps
    • Strain sweeps
    • Time sweeps
    • Thermal sweeps
  • Yield stress testing
  • Texture analysis
  • Lubricity or coefficient of friction
    • US Patent 9,541,491 B2
  • Powder mixer torque rheology
  • New – Powder tester – Avalanche Angle Cruiser

Whether you need data for fluid transport and processing of fluid systems, process scale-up, basic research, studies of consumer perceived product attributes to guide product development for next generation products, we are here to help.

In addition, we have many years of experience in rheology test method development and validation.
