Brookfield 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 get the most out of the Brookfield Viscometer and Rheometer measurements by providing information, activities and techniques. Discussion topics include how to pick a spindle/speed combination as well as calibration and verification checks. It 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. It is designed for the intermediate to advanced users.
