Maintaining the optimum viscosity of a molten material is key for efficiency and product quality of many industrial processes. Processing of melts at high temperatures is the basis for classical or additive manufacturing of many materials like glasses or metals. Molten slag or ash viscosity is essential for economically operating industrial gasification processes of coal, biomass or waste. TA Instruments new VIS 413 high temperature viscometer provides dependable viscosity data of melts in an industry leading wide temperature range. The webinar will introduce the measuring principle of the VIS 413. The important features and benefits will be showcased by results of high temperature viscosity measurements performed on a variety of different materials. See how high temperature viscometry can provide you with the right material data critical to improve melt processing in classical and additive manufacturing.
