The OnLine Rheometer (OLR)
 
The OnLine Rheometer (OLR) has been developed and manufactured by Rheology Solutions and is designed to continuously measure, plot and report the flow properties of process liquids in the pipe.

The OLR will provide instant and accurate rheological data in real time so that liquids during manufacturing and processing are produced and maintained within specification-first time and on time.

The OLR is designed for use in a pipe, and it continuously measures and relays the data to the process operator - either through SOLR the software for the OLR or through the factory PLC (Process Logic Controller)

The plant operator or engineer input specific flow property data for the product being tested to establish the optimum production specification parameters. The OLR monitors the process and displays the product conformance throughout the manufacturing and production process.

PCR Process Control Rheometer
 
The HAAKE PCR's patented bypass design makes it possible to measure the viscosity at low shear rates without compromising residence time, this results in a much higher sensitivity when comparing different molecular weight materials.

The die exit pressure control feature allows the HAAKE PCR to operate at pre defined pressures ensuring operation in the linear region of the transducers and preventing degasing of intrigents with high gas pressure. This also allows covering a wide melt index range and product transitions with a single die, eliminating costly and time consuming die changes common to other systems.
