The Hercules Hi-Shear Viscometer system measures the viscosity and other flow properties of dispersions and coatings that are subjected to varying degrees of shear. Each viscometer draws the classic "Hercules Rheogram" and reports data. 

The "Hercules Rheogram" has been used for over 50 years as a reliable way to predict flow characteristics in pigment slurries and coating colors. 

The Hercules Model DV-10 is equally suited to generate precise, reproducible results demanded by R&D standards and is durable to withstand the harsh treatment of a process control laboratory. 

The digital model 250's cell pressure is set using a pressure reference knob and a LCD display. This model utilizes a servo pressure control system, which is comprised of two valves, a pressure sensor and electronic control circuitry. Pressure in the measuring cell is continuously monitored and, if necessary, adjusted to maintain precise control to within ±1% of full scale.

SpectroDens is your all-purpose, modern measurement device for every application from pre-press to print. Whether it be in pre-print for verifying proofs, for ongoing quality control at the printing press, during delivery inspection of paper and print products or in a color lab, SpectroDens is exceptionally suitable, whatever your application.

A modern range of ovens, with a maximum operating temperature of 300°C, providing a combination of excellent performance and reliability.

Increased power and low thermal mass encased fibre insulation ensure both fast heat up times and reduced recovery times. 

Reduced holding power once at set temperature, together with the insulation, makes the range economical. Cool safe outer case temperature.

Both gravity and forced air circulation models are available with a wide choice of control options, allowing the most critical performance criteria to be met. Where processes involve the liberation of flammable vapours, a stoving and curing option is available and for processes involving large amounts of water, a moisture extraction option is available.

The AF 11/6 is an economy ashing furnace with a traditional muffle element. It meets the requirement for a low cost unit which will allow materials to be burnt rapidly at closely controlled temperatures.

The SAF 11/1 (shown right) is a more robust traditionally built muffle ashing furnace capable of accepting up to 15 crucibles up to 50mm diameter. 

A chimney is fitted on both models as standard.
