The CaBER®, or Capillary Breakup Extensional Rheometer, is a low cost, easy to use instrument for quantifying the flow response of a polymer liquid and melt to an extensional deformation. This instrument can be used to quantify the viscosity, surface tension, relaxation time, and breakup time of filaments formed in an extensional flow. This instrument was developed under an SBIR grant from the NSF.
CPG is pleased to announce a range of enhancements that greatly improve the flexibility of the instrument and the quality of the data generated. These enhancements are designed to interface virtually transparently with the existing commercial CaBER® currently marketed by Thermo Haake (see here for more information).
