Discovery Hybrid Rheometer (DHR): Single-head Rheometer Platform

TA Instruments offers an advanced single-head rheometer platform called Discovery Hybrid Rheometer (DHR). The system features the latest hybrid technology, which integrates a patented drag cup motor, magnetic thrust bearing, patent-pending optical encoder dual-reader, force rebalance transducer (FRT), and true position sensor (TPS) into a single-head rheometer.

The optical encoder dual-reader offers excellent resolution of better than 2 nanoradians, while improving phase resolution and eliminating drift. Second-generation magnetic thrust bearing can measure down to 0.5nN.m of torque; it is more rugged and not affected by contamination when compared to air-bearings. High-resolution linear position sensor makes real-time gap corrections for movement caused by thermal expansion.

The DHR system has excellent performance specification and provides true strain, stress control, strain rate, and normal force measurement precision. It also features the popular TA innovations such as Smart Swap™ temperature systems and patented Smart Swap™ geometries.
