A CONSTANT SHEARING STRESS VISCOMETER

A COAXIAL CYLINDER VISCOMETER FOR THE STUDY OF NON- NEWTONIAN MATERIALS UNDER CONDITIONS OF CONTINUOUS SHEARING AT A CONSTANT STRESS IS DESCRIBED. THE RATE OF SHEAR IS CONTROLLED IN SUCH A WAY THAT THE SHEARING STRESS IS KEPT CONSTANT AT A PRESET VALUE. THE APPARENT VISCOSITY IS INVERSELY PROPORTIONAL TO THE MOTOR SPEED. THE STRESS CAN BE VARIED BETWEEN 100 AND 800 DYN SQ. CM; AT 400 DYN SQ. CM THE VISCOSITY RANGE IS 2-50P. THE ACCURACY IS WITHIN A FEW PERCENT. /RRL(A)/
