Polymer Prep Station is
an affordable drive system designed for sample prep using either mixers
or single and twin screw extruders. Systems are
• 3 zones of temperature
control (up to 6 available)
• 1 melt temperature readout
(up to 2 available)
• 1 RPM readout (additional
Auxiliary drive readout available)
• Accommodation for up to 2 melt pressure indicators
• Motor Torque indicator
The rs5000-S1 system is designed
to provide a familiar
HMI for users accustomed to working with the expansive installed base
of pilot plant mixing and extrusion systems.
This signal is generated directly from the motor
drive (as opposed to a load cell).
Combined with the features of the Eurotherm 32h8i indicator (tare & scaling)
an excellent indication of energy generated by the process can be monitored.
The rs5000-S2 Polymer
Study Station is a mid-range drive
with the added capability of Modbus communication and the Insight data
acquisition system. All data from your test runs are recorded at a rate
of 1/sec and stored for later recall using the built in data review package.
When equipped with an in-line, direct measurement torque load cell, the
rs5000-S2 becomes a versatile and affordable torque rheometer solution.
The rs5000-S2 system design
the same HMI as the rs5000-S1 with the addition of Modbus
communication cards in each controller and readout. This added capability
opens up the possibility of enhancing the system with the Insight
data acquisition system.
Run times of up to 8hrs can be
monitored and recorded
The rs5000-S2 system can accommodate either the
Drive Torque measuring system provided with rs5000-s1 drives or enhanced
with an in-line, direct measurement torque load cell. This added capability
provides torque measurement equal to or exceeding that of the highest
priced rheometers on the market.
Torque Rheometer is a fully equipped, computer
controlled Polymer Study Station. All control functions of the rheometer
are achieved via the System 5 PC
based control/data acquisition system.
System 5 provides you
with a clear real-time process view of your test run while logging
data from all process variables at a rate of once per second.
The rs5000-S5 system design incorporates state of the art, industry standard input/output
hardware from Allen-Bradley. This eliminates the extended down time associated
with single source, proprietary hardware. It provides high speed/high
resolution data and enhanced safety features.
The rs5000-S5 has the added capability
of performing IsoThermal tests, enabling Torque Rheometer studies in
the fields of polymer degradation kinetics, chemical cross linking, grafting,
etc. with the optimum melt temperature
consistently maintained throughout the run.
