Rheology is the study of the way a material flows and is a key component in the manufacturing process of any liquid product. It is vital that this property is measured in the manufacture of household and personal care ingredients to enhance operational efficiency and ensure final product quality. Without the correct rheology, items like washing up liquid and shampoo would look and feel very different.
As manufacturers in the personal care industry look to improve process efficiency and grow with demand, a new era of measurement technology is emerging. Real-time, in-line rheology measurements are supporting manufacturers with their efforts to innovate, create new ways to get their products to market, release capacity, and improve quality and agility in their manufacturing base.
