Scarabaeus® Software

Powerful software designed to meet the needs of the rubber industry, from the R&D lab to the production floor.

Scarabaeus software is a powerful and versatile system for programming experiments, generating rapid results, and managing data from all rubber testing instruments.

Designed for integration, the Scarabaeus software system unites data from RPA, MDR, Mooney Viscometer, Hardness and Density testing.  Results can be organized, compared and analyzed by compound, batch number, date and more.  Advanced integration with even greater capability is also available.

Organize testing by compounds across multiple instruments.  RPA, MDR, Mooney, Hardness and Density test plans and results are seamlessly integrated into one database.  The Process Monitor software guides the operator, selects the appropriate test for the compound, and automatically indicates if the sample is within specification.

Testing



Create test plans using pre-loaded methods, or define customized procedures to mimic an industrial process
 
 
 
 
 


Reporting



Select relevant key performance indicators, such as minimum and maximum torque, cure time, scorch time and more! These results are automatically calculated, reported and monitored.
 
 
 
 


Monitoring



Define specification limits for batch release testing. Add control or warning limits for early detection of variations, preventing failing batches in the future.
 
 
 
 
 

Process Controls


  • Routine testing is automatically analyzed for key indicator tags such as min/max torque, cure times, and hundreds more!
  • Reports are automatically generated and fully customizable.
  • Process Analysis organizes results from hundreds of tests, providing actionable information for process control and optimization.

 
 

Kinetics



Powerful kinetic modeling software provides greater insight into the curing behavior of a rubber compound in real-life processing and production.
 
 
 
 
 
 


Advanced Analysis



Go beyond traditional RPA measurements. Advanced FT Rheology is used to calculate a Long Chain Branching index.  This unique capability provides new insight into polymer molecular structure and its impacts on processability of rubber compounds.
 
 
 
 

Ease-of-Use
