Correlation of rheological curves, microscopic images, and optical measuring methods
April 18, 2013 5:00 a.m.–8:45 p.m.
Scientists, engineers, and laboratory staff members, involved in the characterization, development, and testing of foodstuffs, pharmaceutical products, and cosmetics as well as their processing with experience in the area of rheology.
The combination of rheology with light and polarization microscopy allows deeper insights into the flow and application behavior of products such as foodstuffs, pharmaceutical products, cosmetics, and crude oil. The resulting combined results presented here correlate the microstructure with actual flow and transport processes.
- Chronological and temperature characteristics: adhesion, gelatinization, networking, crystallization, melting, freezing, turbidity measurements
- Particle size and particle size distribution
- Structural design and reduction, thixotropy
- Correlation with microstructures by means of in situ light microscopy, contrast improvement
- Mouth feeling, spreadabiity, processability
- Flow characteristics at high flow rate and shear velocity
