The Thermo Haake Caber 1 extensional rheometer measures elongational properties of fluids such as polymer solutions, suspensions, melts, adhesives, emulsions and other materials. The unit analyzes the thinning and breakup of a fluid filament, providing information about a material´s physical properties, said Thermo Material Characterization, a Thermo Electron Corp. business. Useful as an analytical instrument or quality control tool, the Caber 1 features a Class 1 laser micrometer, linear motor drive with variable speed and a closed, temperature-controlled sample chamber.
