Choosing a viscosimeter
I am relatively new to cosmetic formulation and have been tasked with setting up a lab. I have a few questions about buying equipment.
Viscosimeters: How important is it to buy a Brookfield to measure viscosity?
Will it lead to a lot of time savings between my lab work and the production facility I will have contact with? As I work in a small company, the management is hesitant to buy a Brookfield when there are cheaper options. What is the rationale for buying Brookfield over others?
Is buying an overhead mixer sufficient for most mixing needs?
Do high shear mixers such as Silverson’s L5MA offer significant improvements such as smaller droplet size?
Would I likely need a homogeniser if I only bought an overhead mixer?
Thank you in advance for all your help, I have seen a lot of mixed or contradictory advise regarding getting a viscosimeter or mixer.
