Brookfield Engineering will offer one-day viscosity-measurement training sessions this fall at eight different metro areas throughout the United States.

The first session will take place Sept. 13 in Portland, Ore. Other sessions are scheduled for Sept. 15 in San Francisco; Sept. 21, Oct. 20 and Nov. 9 at Brookfield's headquarters in Middleboro, Mass; Oct. 5 in Atlanta: Oct. 27 in Cleveland; Nov. 15 in Sterling Heights, Mich; and
Nov. 17 Philadelphia.

Brookfield also can conduct courses at customers’ facilities where content can be adapted to their specific product applications.

A practical course on viscosity measurements provides attendees with the tools and concepts they need to make the most precise viscosity measurements possible. The course was designed to benefit all operators from beginner to advanced. Participants are encouraged to bring product samples for testing where hands-on time is provided in a relaxed laboratory environment.

The applied course on viscosity test methods was designed for the intermediate to advanced Brookfield Instrumentation user in R&D, analytical, and process engineering functions. Focusing on test methods and techniques, it will review and discuss how Brookfield rotational viscometers and rheometers can be used to provide meaningful product analysis.

The course takes attendees beyond pass/fail criteria to an understanding of how to apply viscometric data as a problem solving and product performance/processing tool, Brookfield says.
