Rheometer RheoCAD500

A high performance rheometer for mortar and concrete characterization

Overview - Principle

"Big brother" of RheoCAD420, the new rheometer RheoCAD500 is a rheometer developed specifically for building materials characterization, such as cement, mortar and fresh concrete. Its principle is based on the measurement of the torque developed in response to the controlled rotation of a measuring device in a bowl. It measures torque vs.speed with multiple programming possibilities to obtain the best rheograms.




RheoCAD Principle


  • Easy programming
  • Linear Scale
  • Logarithmic scale
  • Manual, Quick or Expert protocols
  • Rheological models (Bingham, Herschel Buckley...)
  • Direct data transfer to Excel®



RheoCAD500 offers the largest dynamic range with 5 décades (5 order of magnitude) from 0.001 rpm to 250 rpm with 0.0001 N.m to 10Nm torque. It is now possible to accurately study  thixotropy or concrete restructuration phenomena. With such sensitivity RheoCAD500 can be used for many others complex fluids where high torque is needed: Concentrated suspensions, slurries, heavy paste material (from food industry), ferrofluids or magneto fluids for example.
