Brookfield Announces Fall Viscosity Course Course Schedule

August 19, 2013

Brookfield, a world leader in viscosity measurement and control, offers two hands-on courses designed to help users comprehend the functionality of their instrument and solve the mysteries of fluid behavior while creating a successful and repeatable method. Consistency is vital in the success of any product, and understanding viscosity is a key part to maintaining that quality control.
    
The courses are offered at Brookfield’s headquarters in Middleboro, MA, and in major cities across the U.S. “On-Demand” courses are conducted at the customers’ facilities or at Brookfield’s headquarters.

Practical Course on Viscosity Measurements is a one-day course designed to help you get the most out of your Brookfield viscometer and rheometer measurements by providing you with information, activities, and techniques that you can easily understand — and use. Discussion topics include how to pick a spindle/speed combination, as well as calibration and verification checks. This course is designed for beginner to intermediate users.

Lab Day/Advanced Viscosity Test Methods is a one-day, advanced course that focuses on the customer’s interests, formulations, and processing problems. Attendees are encouraged to bring samples which will be reviewed to determine “best practice” methodology for making measurements including: yield stress, shear rate ramps, viscosity vs. temperature profiles, creep, and viscoelastic behavior. This course is offered at Brookfield’s facility in Middleboro or at the customers’ location, and is designed for intermediate to advanced users.
