The TA Instruments RPA elite rubber process analyzer (RPA) is the most advanced rotorless oscillating shear rheometer dedicated to the complete characterization of polymers, rubber and rubber compounds at all stages of manufacture. The RPA elite provides invaluable viscoelastic data on materials that are uncured, through the curing process, and in situ cured materials. The ultra-rigid test frame, high-resolution variable direct drive motor, ultra-stiff wide-range torque transducer, and precision temperature control provide the most precise and accurate torque, viscosity and viscoelastic properties of elastomers over the widest ranges of testing conditions. The fully flexible architecture of the RPA elite enables advanced testing capabilities beyond any other rubber rheometer including: complete post cure viscoelastic characterization, fully programmable sealing pressure, large amplitude oscillatory shear (LAOS) and arbitrary waveform deformations.
The ARES-G2 is the most advanced rotational rheometer for research and material development. It remains the only commercially available rheometer with a dedicated actuator for deformation control, Torque Rebalance Transducer (TRT), and Force Rebalance Transducer (FRT) for independent shear stress and normal stress measurements. It is recognized by the rheological community as the industry standard to which all other rheometer measurements are compared for accuracy.
TAM IV-48 is a high-throughput version of the TAM IV and can accommodate up to 48 individual 4 mL Minicalorimeters.
The large number of independent and parallel sample-measurements makes this system the optimal solution for sample screening, formulation, and process development. It is equally useful in research laboratories as in industrial laboratories including pharmaceutical production control.
TAM III Provides research quality results on a broad range of samples over a wide temperature range.
The Nano ITC Standard Volume and Nano ITC Low Volume isothermal titration calorimeters are designed to provide maximum sensitivity and flexibility for the study of biomolecular binding. Both instruments use solid state thermoelectric heating and cooling systems to precisely control temperature, and have the same flexible injection syringe assemblies for efficient and accurate delivery of titrant. The true isothermal power compensation design of the Nano ITC instruments provides the highest sensitivity and flexibility for an ultrasensitive ITC analyzing biological samples in-solution.
The Nano DSC differential scanning calorimeter is designed to characterize the molecular stability of dilute in-solution biomolecules. The Nano DSC obtains data using less sample than competitive designs. Solid-state thermoelectric elements are used to precisely control temperature and a built-in precision linear actuator maintains constant or controlled variable pressure in the cell. Automated, unattended continuous operation with increased sample throughput is achieved with the optional Nano DSC Autosampler.
