Key Features

The Best now Better: the New MCR Evolution Series

Anton Paar had consistently worked for more than 25 years to extend the portfolio in close association with the customers and rheometer users. The company takes the privilege to launch the new MCR Evolution series. These are the rheometers that help to progress to the next level.

The Benefits of the New MCR Evolution Series

  • The quick one-hand coupling and decoupling of calculating geometries in a second, even at extreme temperatures ranging at −160°C to 1000°C, is a novel quick-connect mechanism
  • Delivers stable results even for long-term measurements with low torque, offering improved thermal management within the EC motor starting from MCR 302e
  • Enables accurate measurement of low-viscosity samples even with the entry budget model with a higher sensitivity ranging from 7.5 nMm to 2 nNm
  • This is the only commercially available device with a trimming mirror of 360° view of the sample with no blind spots, eliminating sample preparation errors and resulting in high reproducibility outcomes
  • Ability to detect any sample behavior change even at the shortest time scale with a reproducible time of each measuring point ranging down to 1 ms
  • Additional space for sample handling and exchange of accessories with an extended working height starting from MCR 302e
  • Full pharma compliance: The best pharma package for the RheoCompass software (21 CFR Part 11, full data integrity according to ALCOA+)

Takes Work off the Hands: Unique Motor and Sample-Adaptive Controller Technology

The MCR Evo series is a result of 25 years of research, development and constant improvement. Technology has enhanced the capability of rheometry.

The combination of the EC motor (Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor) using a high-accuracy air bearing with active thermal management, integrated normal force sensor and a high-resolution optical encoder enables rheological measurements even at the lowest torque range.

The exclusive sample-adaptive controllers for measurement in rotation (TruRate™) and oscillation (TruStrain™) work for 99% of all samples and measurements “out of the box” with an ideal combination of speed and precision. This saves time and workload and provides better data in parallel.

Excellence in Every Component and Every Work Step

With decades of experience in the field, Anton Paar understands and predicts the requirement for high-performance rheological analysis. With this knowledge, the company has designed each component and developed every handling step to be a part of a smooth and intelligent device.

  • Enables single-handed exchange of measuring systems due to the QuickConnect coupling
  • The patented Toolmaster™ technology is capable of automatically recognizing measuring systems
  • The TruGap™ feature detects the real measuring gap
  • T-Ready™ is capable of detecting sample temperature equilibration in real-time
  • The trimming mirror offers a 360° view of the sample and facilitates high measurement repeatability and many more features

Choose from More than 100 Test Templates, Set Report Filters and Use Remote Control

The intuitive RheoCompass software provides predefined and customized test templates and analysis definitions. Additionally, it is possible to export the rheological information and generate reports, and data can be filtered, for example, by year, batch number or operator, and is displayed within seconds.

Thanks to the Ethernet connection, the rheometer can be remote-controlled from anywhere through the company network. Gap setting, adjustments and tests can be started directly from the MCR rheometer. This reduces annoying switches between the computer and the device, for example, during sample preparation.
