    A rotational benchtop Rheometer with vane spindles can be used to measure the static yield stress behavior of materials. By running at different rotational speeds, the Rheometer data can be equated with the viscoelastic information determined by an oscillating rheometer. The rotational Rheometer offers a less expensive method suitable for Quality Control needs.
