Rheological Characterization

These are the results of exemplary rheological experiments for a commercial EOR polymer. At ITE EOR chemicals can be characterized by rotational and elongational rheology. Typical results of the analysis are standard flow curves, longest relaxation time, first normal stress difference and elongational viscosity.
