MIDDLEBORO, MA – Brookfield Engineering is offering two hands-on courses designed to help users understand the functionality of their instrument and solve the mysteries of fluid behavior while creating a successful and repeatable method. Consistency is vital in the success of any product, and understanding viscosity is a key part to maintaining that quality control. The courses are offered at Brookfield’s headquarters in Middleboro, MA, and in major cities across the United States. Courses can also be conducted at customers’ facilities.

“Practical Course on Viscosity Measurements” is a one-day course designed to help users get the most out of their Brookfield viscometer and rheometer measurements. Discussion topics include how to pick a spindle/speed combination, as well as calibration and verification checks. The course is designed for beginner to intermediate users.

“Lab Day/Advanced Viscosity Test Methods” is a one-day, advanced course that focuses on the customer’s interests, formulations and processing problems. Attendees are encouraged to bring samples, which will be reviewed to determine best-practice methodology for making measurements including: yield stress, shear rate ramps, viscosity vs. temperature profiles, creep and viscoelastic behavior. This course is designed for intermediate to advanced users.
