Brookfield Engineering


Methodology Consulting

The key to successful quality control is designing effective viscosity test methods. Our Methodology Consulting Service brings a Brookfield Consulting Engineer to your facility to review and recommend appropriate test methods for your materials. We will work with you to define acceptable viscosity behavior taking into consideration relevant shear rates, shear stresses, temperature and time sensitivity issues.

A detailed report will include:

  • Sample preparation method
  • Equipment recommendations
  • Controlled shear rate and shear stress tests
  • Temperature profiling
  • Thixotropic testing
  • Material structure recovery evaluation
  • Data collection and reporting
  • QC viscosity control limit values

Consulting Services can also be scheduled to take place at Brookfield's facility in Middleboro, MA.
