RST Spindles

The choice of coaxial cylinder, cone and vane spindles accommodates viscosity measurement of a wide variety of materials.
RST spindles 201x583
The RST series Rheometers are available as three different models each with a different spindle geometry:

RST-CC Rheometers use coaxial cylinder spindle geometry
RST-CPS Rheometers use cone and plate spindle geometry
RST-SST Rheometers use vane spindle geometry
