Kinexus Rotational Rheometer
more rheology, less effort
Kinexus is a unique rheometer designed for tomorrow's rheology needs across all industries and application areas. Designed from the ground up, the Kinexus rheology platform is the result of more than four years intensive product development.
Kinexus enables you to precisely analyze the rheology, or flow and deformation properties of your materials:
- from liquids to solids.
- from processability to product performance.
- from temperature to time dependence.
- from simple viscosity to complex viscoelastic parameters.
What makes the Kinexus rheometer unique?
Pioneering 'expert system' guidance
Built-in adaptive intelligence guides you through your instrument set-up, your sample loading, your measurement and analysis, from enquiry to result. Kinexus redefines the way a user interacts with their rheometer.
Unique applications-led interface
Malvern's Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) approach to material testing has been a corner stone to all our technologies, and has now been enhanced in the Kinexus system to provide intelligent problem solving for your sample, your material or your process problems.
Intuitive ‘one click’ operation
Kinexus has a revolutionary control interface with unique functionality, maximum flexibility and the ultimate user-friendly approach. Optimal feedback is provided for all user interactions via the software at all times, to ensure consistent and correct rheological methodology.
'Plug and play' operation for all system components
Quick connect geometries with intelligent auto-recognition for your optimal working set-up. Exclusive 'plug and play' cartridges for all environmental controllers - automatically aligned, all connections made and instantly configured in one fast and simple operation. One-cable instrument set-up via USB2.
Multifunctional environmental controllers
Plug and play cartridges include design features for maximum measurement functionality. Interchangeable lower plates allow you to easily customize geometry requirements for your samples. All thermal systems modelled and optimized for temperature stability, ramp performance and minimized thermal gradients.
Fully flexible control of key rheometer functions
Kinexus provides independent configuration and control of the three critical rheometer functions: Motor system (rotational control of torque, speed and position); Gap and normal force system; Temperature system. Combine control of these functions in any way you want for the ultimate in test flexibility.
Dynamically-optimized motor drive system
New motor drive optimized for torque range, efficiency, inertia and the fastest transient responses. Unsurpassed air bearing technology for minimum torque bias. Designed without compromising system compliance for assurance of reliable rheological data from low viscosity liquids to high modulus solids.
Exclusive intelligent and adaptive bearing
Exclusive to Kinexus platform is an adaptive bearing design that automatically configures for optimal operation depending on your measurement range, to minimize data corrections and maximise robustness for all rheometer operations. Exceptional low torque performance with the widest, continuous dynamic range available.
Unprecedented vertical travel capabilities
Widest vertical travel range for maximum user access and flexibility of test set-up; 230mm between end stops; 0.1µm gap resolution over complete range. Ultra-fast and fully controllable vertical profiles allowing complete configuration of sample loading and axial test capabilities; velocity range 35mm/s to 0.1µm/s.
Ultra-responsive and highly sensitive normal force
High sensitivity and rapid response times from a novel strain gauge design. More controllable and reactive system designed for optimum sample loading and capturing true material responses, from sensitive structures to rapid curing systems to materials with critical strain history.
Complete approach to critical data acquisition
Complete sample history available from the point of loading to unloading - ensure consistent and reproducible sample loading and hence reliable rheological data for your samples. Ultra-fast and constant streaming data update rate of 5kHz for all instrument variables as standard, including gap and normal force.
Robust, open frame design optimizes user interactions
More access for sample loading, for geometry and accessory interchange and for cleaning. Fully-integrated power and communications systems for most efficient use of space. Modular components and available space for easy integration of accessories to meet your future needs.
