Shear rate 3.5 * 10-3 to 2.5 * 102 s

Measuring Systems & Accessories

Low Shear Measuring Systems

Measuring bodies and the associated measuring cups for investigations of small sample quantities at the lowest shear rates.

DIN Measuring Systems 1.1

Standard accessories when ordering the LS300 consisting of measuring body and measuring cup.


By connecting a Julabo thermostat, the measuring cylinder of the LS300 can be cooled or heated.

Fields of Application

Oil & Fuels

For use at universities and hospitals

What does Low Shear mean?
– Low Shear measurements allow the rheological investigation of substances
with low stress on the internal structure (e.g. erythrocyte accumulation)
– without alteration of the molecules in polymer solutions
– without further effort for measurement very low viscosity (e.g. gases)

The LS 300 measuring unit consists of a measuring head, a
control unit with screen, keyboard and mouse, so that the LS 300 can be operated completely via this control unit. The viscosity values are automatically calculated, displayed on the screen during the measurement, all measurement data are stored and are protected against manipulation. Connection to a commercially available cryostat is possible.
