MIDDLEBORO, MA – Brookfield Engineering is offering two courses to help customers get the most out of their viscosity measurement equipment.

The “Practical Course on Viscosity Measurements” is a one-day course designed to help Brookfield viscometer users understand the functionality of their instrument, solve the mysteries of fluid behavior and rheology, and create successful and repeatable viscosity test methods for use in both research and development, and quality assurance/quality control environments. Discussion topics include how to pick a spindle/speed combination, methodology, rheology, calibration and verification checks. The course is designed for beginner to intermediate users. It is offered at Brookfield’s headquarters in Middleboro, MA, and at major cities across the United States. Space is limited and customers are encouraged to sign up early. On-demand courses are conducted at the customers’ facilities or at Brookfield’s headquarters.

“Lab Day/Advanced Viscosity Test Methods” is an on-demand, one-day, advanced course that focuses on the customer’s interests, formulations and processing problems. The course covers viscosity and related rheological measurements including: yield stress, shear rate ramps, viscosity vs. temperature profiles, creep, and viscoelastic behavior. It is designed for intermediate to advanced users, and covers the more advanced viscosity topics utilizing sample testing.
