Please submit your application at www.rheosense.com/academic-viscometer-grant-program.
RheoSense, Inc. (San Ramon, CA) – is proud to announce a new addition to the VROC™ family, e-VROC™ viscometer! Coupled with the same small sample requirements and a wide dynamic range, e-VROC™ maintains the precision and accuracy of the m-VROC™ viscometer with one slight twist: the capability of measuring apparent extensional viscosity.
Extensional or elongational viscosity is ideal for
studying the complex properties of many fluids usedin industrial applications. By monitoring the sample flow through a microfluidic contraction, the system measures the pressure upstream and downstream of a contraction using the MEMS pressure sensors and registers changes in the flow. The fluid experiences shear flow in the straight channel and then an almost constant extension in the contraction zones as depicted in figure 1.
RheoSense Inc, (San Ramon, CA) - is always seeking talented and enthusiastic candidates to join our expanding team, including an Applications Engineer intern who can support and contribute to the company's engineering team. This will be a great opportunity for college students or recent graduates who are looking for more experience.
