The Anton-Paar MCR 302 is a “standard rheometer” also used in the field of polymers and suspension rheology. Different geometries can be installed on the same device. It enables the measurement of cement pastes with a maximum particle size of 300 µm. The coaxial cylinders and parallel plate geometries are available, both smooth and sandblasted (to minimize slippage). The EC motor technique, the low friction bearing and the patented normal force sensor have been optimized enabling any type or combination of rheological tests, both in rotational and oscillatory mode.
