TA Instruments DHR3 Rheometer

Bard Hall B56

The DHR3 can be used to measure: viscosity, shear stress, storage and loss modulus, strain, and phase angle – with respect to: time, temperature, shear rate and frequency.  It can also be used for transient testing such as creep and stress relaxation, and UV cure kinetics.  Available geometries include: 40 mm parallel plate, 25 and 40 mm 2° cones, and cup and rotor with options of vaned or conical rotor. It has three heating system options, Peltier plate, Peltier concentric cylinders, and an environmental test chamber.



  • Torque, minimum oscillation 0.5 nN*m, minimum steady shear 5 nN*m, maximum 200 mN*m;
  • Torque resolution, 0.05 nN*m;
  • Frequency, 1.0 E-07 to 100 Hz, Angular velocity, up to 300 rad/s;
  • Strain step time, 15 ms;
  • Rate step time, 5 ms;
  • Maximum normal force, 50 N;
  • Normal force sensitivity, 0.005 N;
  • Normal force resolution, 0.5 mN;
  • temperature range, -20 °C to 60 °C, or 60 °C to 500 °C – depending on configuration.
