Gneuss Debuts On-Line Viscosimeter

Gneuss Inc., Matthews, N.C., now offers a compact viscosimeter for on-line melt viscosity measurement. The company reports the device is fitted according to a customer’s specifications between 0.8 and 4 inches. The unit comprises a pump, pump drive, temperature sensors, pressure transducers, and control and evaluation electronics. Process parameter settings, evaluation and display may be achieved using a touch screen or by integration into an existing control system.

Reported benefits of the new viscosimeter include: short dwell time, no dead spots and no remains in the melt channels; measurement in rectangular cross section, which eliminates recording of elastic properties; polymer bypass, which eliminates melt losses; temperature variations of less than 2°C for all parts that contact the melt; complete cleaning without interrupting production; very compact design; and ability to adapt to existing melt pipes or extrusion lines.
