Discovery Hybrid Rheometers

No other line of rheometers combines state-of-the art patented measurement technology and an unrivaled line of rheometer accessories in an easy-to-use platform.

The Discovery Hybrid Rheometer is available in three models to meet your specific needs of sensitivity and capability. From the world’s most sensitive rheometer – the HR-3 – to general purpose HR-1, every Discovery Hybrid Rheometer is built on a common core of the TA Instruments advanced drag cup motor and second generation magnetic thrust bearing.

Find out how the Discovery Hybrid Rheometer will improve your rheological characterization by making better measurements, over a wider range of conditions, with less time in the laboratory.

The new Discovery Series Hybrid Rheometer (DHR) represents the latest technological breakthroughs from the world leader in rheology. It combines a patented advanced drag cup motor, a second generation magnetic bearing, force rebalance transducer (FRT), and the new patent-pending True Position Sensor (TPS) in a single-head Hybrid rheometer. The DHR has unprecedented performance specification and delivers unsurpassed direct strain control, direct stress control, and normal force measurement accuracy. The DHR features all popular TA innovations including patented Smart SwapTM geometries and the widest range of Smart Swap temperature systems and accessories commercially available. The result is the most advanced, versatile rheometer platform imaginable.

The HR-3 is the pinnacle of the Discovery Hybrid Rheometer family. Featuring the world’s best available torque sensitivity and the all new patent-pending Optical Encoder Dual Reader, the HR-3 is the most advanced single-head rheometer in the world.


ARES-G2 Rheometer

The ARES-G2 is the most advanced rotational rheometer for research and material development. It remains the only commercially available rheometer with a dedicated actuator for deformation control, Torque Rebalance Transducer (TRT), and Force Rebalance Transducer (FRT) for independent shear stress and normal stress measurements. It is recognized by the rheological community as the industry standard to which all other rheometer measurements are compared for accuracy.

The ARES-G2 platform offers an array of incomparable features including:

  • Unrivaled data accuracy
  • Unmatched strain and new stress control
  • Fully integrated fast data sampling
  • Separate electronics
  • New Smart Swap? environmental systems
  • Patented Active Temperature Control
  • Advanced accessories
  • TRIOS Software providing extreme testing flexibility
  • Large Amplitude Oscillatory Shear (LAOS) and Fourier Transform (FT) Rheology Analysis Software package
  • NEW Orthogonal Superposition (OSP) and 2 Dimensional Small Amplitude Oscillatory Shear (2D-SAOS) techniques
  • NEW DMA mode for measurements of solids in bending, tension and compression

There simply is no comparison to any other rheometer
