Manufacturing & Processing

Thermo Scientific™ HAAKE™ MARS™ iQ Rotational Rheometers ensure intuitive, reliable and flexible rheological measurements. Everything about this QC rheometer is designed to provide intuitive handling and fast, reliable results. A sophisticated touchscreen enables standard operating procedures to be run right from rheometer itself. “Connect Assist” functionality guides users for failure-free measurement.
Choose a HAAKE MARS iQ Rheometer with either the ball bearing or air bearing system to suit your lab. A broad range of accessories helps meet the ever-greater testing demands on QC labs.
HAAKE MARS iQ Rotational Rheometers are the replacements for the discontinued Thermo Scientific™ HAAKE™ RheoStress™ 1 Rheometer and Thermo Scientific™ HAAKE™ RotoVisco™ 1 Rotational Rheometer.

  • Next generation of highly dynamic, powerful EC motor with a mechanical or air bearing. 

Individualized Configurations

  • Broad scope of temperature modules, measuring geometries and application-oriented measuring cells, e.g., pressure cells, building material measuring cell or tribology measuring cell
  • Sensitive normal force sensor measures axial forces in both directions for applications such as texture analysis
  • Lateral and bottom access for customized test requirements

Application solutions
The HAAKE MARS iQ Rheometers are well-suited for the rheological characterization of a broad range of samples from low-viscous or water-like up to stiff and paste-like semisolids:

  • Investigation of paints, coatings and inks: shear viscosity, thixotropy, yield stress, shear recovery, levelling and sagging behavior
  • Rheology and textural properties of foods and foodstuffs: shear viscosity, yield stress, tribology, texture analysis (axial bending, breaking, squeezing tests), phase transition  
  • Rheology of cosmetics and pharmaceuticals: viscosity, yield stress, viscoelastic properties, stability tests 
  • Rheology of polymer (e.g. polymer melts and solutions): viscoelasticity, phase transitions (glass transition, crystallization, melting), processing behavior (hot melt extrusion, molding, spinning), molecular weight, curing
  • Rheology of petrochemicals (crude oils, fracking liquids and drilling fluids): viscosity, yield stress, pressure dependent properties, stability tests, wax deposition, wax appearance temperature (WAT)
  • Dynamic shear rheometer (DSR) tests according to AASHTO, ASTM and DIN used for bitumen and asphalt
  • Construction and building material (cement paste and slurries): flow properties of suspensions with large particles
