Brookfield Engineering offers its Practical Course on Viscosity Measurements designed to help Brookfield viscometer users understand their instruments, solve the mysteries of fluid behavior and rheology, and create successful and repeatable viscosity test methods for use in both R&D and QA/QC environments. The course is offered at Brookfield’s headquarters in Middleboro, MA and in major cities across the United States. Space is limited and customers are encouraged to sign up early. An advanced course, Lab Day/Advanced Viscosity Test Methods is available on demand and covers more advanced viscosity topics utilizing sample testing.

The one-day Practical Course on Viscosity Measurements is Brookfield’s most popular course, according to the company. Discussion topics include how to pick a spindle/speed combination, methodology, rheology, calibration and verification checks. Lab Day/Advance Viscosity Test Methods focuses on the customer 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.
