2016 North American Material Processing and Characterization Workshops

Extrusion, Compounding and Rheology

FREE Half-day workshop dedicated to advances in Extrusion, Compouding and Rheology
Get the most information from your material for QC and R&D, with Thermo Scientific™ extruders, compounders, rheometers, and viscometers, designed to accurately measure the properties of fluids and other complex materials.

  • Optimizing Material and Processes Through Rheological Measurements
    Gain understanding of both theoretical and practical aspects of rheological measurements, including viscosity, yield stress, complex viscosity, and extensional viscosity, for a wide range of materials, including fluids, semi-solids as well as molten or solid polymers.
  • Utilizing Small Scale Processing in Formulation and R&D
    This session provides an overview of batch mixing, compounding, and extrusion, in both principles and practical considerations, using a series of and real-world processes and examples from food, polymer, and pharmaceutical industries.
  • Scalable Extrusion Solutions---from Development to Production
    How to use a systematic approach to scale up extrusion processes from R&D to production, using critical process parameters, including screw elements and barrel design, based on selected examples from the industry.
  • Gaining Molecular Level Analysis through Hyphenated Techniques
    Investigating cutting edge hyphenation of rheology/extrusion with vibrational spectroscopy, including Rheometer---FTIR, Rheometer---Raman, and Hot Melt Extrusion---NIR, and their applications for providing real-time molecular insight to material properties and processes.
