Polylab OS System- Polymer compounding and extrusion
Drive and control unit for the determination of rheological properties of molten plastics or other fluid materials. Measuring systems like mixers and extruders are connected by means of the self-centering plug and automatically recognized through the plug & play concept of the software. The individual limits of the measuring systems are recognized, transmitted to the controller and taken as alarm values.

TA Instruments’ Q800 DMA, based on a combined motor and transducer design, uses advanced, non-contact, linear motors to control stress and measure strain with a highly sensitive optical encoder. Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA) is a technique used to measure the mechanical properties of a wide range of materials. DMA works primarily in the viscoelastic range of a material and is therefore more sensitive to structure than a typical tensile test. With its unique design, the Q800 is also ideal for high-stiffness applications including composites.

The Recharge Center’s Quantachrome Autosorb-1 gas sorption system is available for use. Volume-pressure data measured by the system is converted by the software into BET surface area (single and/or multipoint), Langmuir surface area, adsorption and/or desorption isotherms, pore size and surface area distributions, micropore volume and surface area. The system operates by measuring the quantity of gas adsorbed onto or desorbed from a solid surface at some equilibrium vapor pressure by the static volumetric method.
