Brookfield Engineering is offering its Practical Course on Viscosity Measurements. The course is designed to help Brookfield viscometer users comprehend the functionality of their instrument, solve the mysteries of fluid behavior and rheology, and create successful and repeatable viscosity test methods for use in both R&D and QA/QC environments. Consistent measurement is vital in the success of any product and understanding viscosity is a key part to maintaining quality control, according to the company.
The course is offered at Brookfield’s headquarters in Middleboro, Massacusetts, and at major cities across the US. Space is limited and customers are encouraged to sign up early. “On-Demand” courses are conducted at the customers’ facilities or at Brookfield’s headquarters. An advanced course, Lab Day/Advanced Viscosity Test Methods, is an on-demand course covering more advanced viscosity topics utilizing sample testing.
