For over 80 years Brookfield Engineering Laboratories has been the world’s leading manufacturer of Viscometers and Rheometers for laboratory and on-line process control applications. The reputation of the Brookfield viscometer is built on more than just a superior scientific principle. When you use a Brookfield, you are joining thousands of people who have made it a World Standard of viscosity measurement. There are more Brookfield viscometers used in industries worldwide than any other viscometer. Your associates, suppliers or customers probably own a Brookfield. Many Society and Industrial specifications describe the use of a Brookfield viscometer. Laboratory Viscometers and Rheometers include Dial Reading (Analog) and Digital Display Model of which several are Programmable. On-line Process Control Viscometers include Probe, In-Tank, In-Line and flow through models.
All Brookfield viscometers employ the well-known principle of rotational viscometry; they measure viscosity by sensing the torque required to rotate a spindle at constant speed while immersed in a fluid. The torque is proportional to the viscous drag on the immersed spindle, and thus to the viscosity of the fluid.

Hielscher Ultrasonics specializes in the design and manufacturing of high power ultrasonic homogenizers for lab, bench-top and production level. Ultrasonic power is an effective and energy-efficient means to apply high shear and intense stress to liquids, powder/liquid mixtures and slurries. This makes it a strong alternative to high shear mixers, high pressure homogenizers and agitated bead mills.Hielscher ultrasonic devices are in use worldwide as laboratory mixers, high shear mixing equipment, full-size in-line homogenizers or particle mills. The applications span mixing, dispersing, particle size reduction, extraction and chemical reactions.
Hielscher ultrasonic devices are used in the synthesis of nanomaterials as well as in the formulation of compounds and composites containing nanomaterials. This includes the use of ultrasonics during precipitation and the deagglomeration of nano-size materials, like metal oxides or carbon nanotubes.
Ultrasound is used in the formulation of paints and coatings for: emulsification of polymers dispersing and fine milling of pigments size reduction of .
Ultrasonic cleaning is an environmentally friendly alternative for the cleaning of continuous materials, such as wire and cable, tape or tubes. The effect of the cavitation generated by the ultrasonic power removes lubrication residues like oil or grease, soaps, stearates or dust.
Welcome to INEL, the home of real-time X-Ray diffraction systems specifically designed for teaching laboratories, research and routine analytical applications.
There are INEL Equinox diffractometer systems available for a great variety of budgets and applications; ranging from routine qualitative analysis to sophisticated research studies.
All INEL X-Ray diffractometers measure the entire 2? diffraction angle pattern simultaneously by employing a unique curved X-Ray detector that replaces the older mechanical scanning goniometers used by other manufacturers. This makes INEL XRD systems perfect for kinetic or dynamic measurements in that all data are recorded in “real time”, at very high resolution, with detector options capable of resolving 0.04 degrees-2? FWHM. The systems are designed to analyze sample area as small as 10 microns.
The EQUINOX series of diffractometers are available for powder samples as well as bulk samples, single crystallites, liquids and gels.
Apart from routine phase identification, challenging applications include Rietveld analysis, residual stress analysis, topography, epitaxial analysis, texture and multipole applications. Systems are also available for SWAXS applications with a full range of wide and small angle diffraction systems employing both curved and linear detectors. INEL also specializes in customized setups.
