GOETTFERT offers a modular platform for the advanced characterization of polymers. A capillary rheometer is the basic device and various additional add-ons can be added modular. In addition to determining the viscosity of plastic melts, it is possible to carry out an advanced material-specific characterization of the polymer materials. The GOETTFERT capillary rheometer can carry out additional functionalities like Contifeed, Thermal Conductivity, pvT (isothermal and isobaric), Counter Pressure Champer, Die Swell, Elongation (Rheotens, Haul-Off) as well as determination of the Shark-Skin effect.
With various add-ons to the capillary rheometer, GOETTFERT offers a modular platform for advanced material characterization.
The Contifeed is a mini-extruder, which feeds the test channel of the capillary rheometer directly with the melt or the testable material and thus represents a fully automatic melt feeding unit. This add-on is particularly suitable for thermally less resistant material, since its residence time is very low due to the automatic feeding of the material.
The advantages of Contifeed:
