Dynamic Shear Rheometer 

Kinexus DSR+

 

The world's most sensitive DSR for all construction and petro chemicals testing

Kinexus DSR+ is a rotational rheometer for use in the Asphalt industry. The system applies controlled shear deformation to a sample under test, to enable measurement of flow properties (such as shear viscosity from flow tests) and dynamic material properties (such viscoelastic modulus and phase angle from oscillation tests).

Features:

  • Grade testing to industry standards such as AASHTO and EN specifications with Time-Temperature Superposition for master curve generation.

  • Wide variety of measurement geometries optimized for rheological characterization of liquid binders through to solid asphalt cores.

  • All modes of rheological operation – stress control, shear rate control and direct strain controlled oscillation at demand strain amplitude for accurate control of sample strain history.

  • Access to all rheological tests supplied with the standard Kinexus package in addition to the standard Asphalt software.

  • Unique rSpace software interface that offers total flexibility of test set-up - from sequence-driven Standard Operating Procedure (SOP)-type functionality to fully customizable test design.

  • Intelligent geometry recognition with full auto-configuration and user feedback on system status to guarantee robust data for all measurements.

  • Solids fixtures for measuring fatigue or accumulated strain testing of asphalt cores and Penetrometer adapter for automated penetration testing of asphalt binders.

  • Complete sample history from the point of loading onto the rheometer available in data file as standard – because ensuring reliable rheology data for complex materials like asphalt actually starts before a measurement takes place.

  • Exceptional vertical travel and gapping capabilities with ultra-responsive and highly sensitive normal force system for class-leading performance.

  • Unique ‘plug and play’ cartridge system for all temperature and environmental controllers – all mechanical, power, communication and fluid connections made in one simple action.

  • Multifunctional accessory design – plate cartridges with interchangeable lower plates and cylinder cartridges with interchangeable cups - for a cost-effective solution and widest application coverage.
