Viscosity of Corn Syrup as a Function of Concentration and Temperature 

By Gregory E. Ogden, Ph.D. at University of Arizona

"The trends in the viscosity data acquired with the microVISC™ across different temperatures and concentrations follow those seen in other studies [1-4]. Combined with the trends in activation energy found from data fitted to an Arrhenius model shows that the viscometer can deliver reliable temperature dependent viscosity data."

microVISC™ viscometers are powered by RheoSense’s Viscometer-Rheometer-on-a-Chip (VROC®) technology to offer high accuracy and repeatability which makes them ideal for R&D and QC applications.

Features include:

  • Accuracy: 2% of Reading
  • Repeatability: 0.5% of Reading
  • Small Sample Volume
  • Shear Viscosity Range: 0.2 – 20,000 mPa-s
  • Shear Rate range: 1.7 -5,800 s-1
  • Temperature control: 18-50 °C
