A new automated temperature calibration option from Paar Physica provides users of MCR series rheometers precise temperature calibration quickly and easily. Accurate measurement and control of temperatures are crucial to achieving reliable rheological data. Frequent calibration to insure the sample temperature is measured and controlled correctly is recognized as a requirement for collecting good data. Paar Physica's fully automated calibration procedure is controlled by a new temperature calibration routine in its US 200 software. All the user has to do is select one or more points of calibration, place the sensor between the plates, and start the program. After collecting data at each of the selected temperatures, calibration data are calculated automatically and can be stored in the operating software of the rheometer for automatic use in subsequent measurements.
