Rheoline VSC

Rheoline Volumetric Sample Cutter


Our Rheoline Volumetric Sample Cutter can be relied upon to provide consistent samples of volume and size for use with machines from the Prescott Instruments Rheoline range, including the Rheoline Mini MDR Lite. 

To obtain the best performance from your rheometer, it is strongly recommended that samples of exact volume and shape are always used, ensuring the die cavity is filled with only the correct amount of material.

Too little material can cause slippage, affecting the end result.
Too much material inserted may cause the platens to not seal correctly, resulting in imprecise measurement.

This ergonomically-designed pneumatic system is suitable for use with uncured rubber and other polymer materials. Each sample is precisely cut according to a user-defined volume. The conveniently positioned and comfortable buttons are designed to work simultaneously to provide a safe working environment.

Our constant Rheoline VSC operates in two distinct ways:

  1. The material is first compressed to a predetermined thickness
  2. The cutting action takes place, ensuring an exact and constant sample volume
