We are able to provide on our entire range:
- The board
- Installation and training
- Maintenance and calibration services in the workshop or on site
Our different products cover the following areas :
Color and Shine:
In this category, we offer a whole range of products to highlight the appearance properties of your products:
Colorimeters and spectrocolorimeters (also called spectrophotometers) from the X-Rite range.
These colorimeters and spectrocolorimeters are used for color measurement in quality control or in formulation for solid products, liquids, powders.
They exist in 45/0 ° measuring geometry or integrating sphere (also called Ulbricht sphere, or diffuse 8 ° geometry) or in multi-angle geometry used for paints or effect inks.
These devices can be portable or benchtop. Laboratory devices exist in measurement by reflection or transmission
Spectral colorimeters or spectrocolorimeters for liquids from the Hach Lange range
These spectral colorimeters or spectrocolorimeters for liquids are specially designed for the measurement of optically transparent liquids. They measure according to the Hazen, Gardner, Iodine, Saybolt, European Pharmacopoeia scales ...
Light booths from Verivide or TQC
These light booths allow you to observe your products in a standardized environment and using standardized illuminants (daylight D65, UV, F, A ...)
Light booths exist in different sizes, different combinations of illuminants, with observation table, with diffuser ...
Glossmeters, opacimeters, Haze and orange peel (DOI) measuring devices from the Rhopoint or TQC ranges
These glossometers (also called refractometers) are available in different measuring angles 20, 45, 60 or 85 °, with integrated or separate probe. in mono angle or multi angle models.
Viscosity, Rheology, Texture
This category includes all the viscometers and rheometers of the Ametek Brookfield range.
Labomat Essor is the exclusive representative of Ametek Brookfield, world leader in viscometers and rheometers, in France, the Maghreb and French-speaking Africa.
As such, Labomat Essor provides advice, marketing, installation, training, calibration and maintenance of the entire range of Brookfield viscometers and rheometers.
Brookfield viscometers can be equipped with different sensors (LV RV HA or HB for the main viscosity ranges). The principle is to have a rotating mobile in the product and to determine the resistance of the product to the rotation of the mobile as a function of the mobile and the speed used.
Brookfield viscometers will be available in different performance ranges depending on the number of speeds, their possibility of interfacing with a printer, data storage, computer control, etc.
They therefore exist in the following models:
Analog viscometers : recognized for their robustness and reliability in the most extreme conditions for many years.
Viscometers for quality control : DVE and DV1M
Viscometers for quality control and research and developmentt: DV2T and DVNext
While Brookfield viscometers measure the viscosity of a product under a limited number of agitation conditions, the purpose of Brookfield rheometers is to determine the rheological properties of products. That is to say the evolution of the viscosity of the products according to their stirring conditions. We can then draw rheograms (flow curves, rheological curves) according to the speed, the shear rate (speed gradient, agitation, shear rate) or according to the shear stress (shear stress) or even in oscillation (oscillation sweep or frequency sweep, amplitude or frequency sweep).
These rheometers can be used alone or controlled by computers and allow you to draw curves but also to help you in the interpretation of results using mathematical models: Thixotropy, Newton, Casson, Bingham, Oswald, Herschel Buckley ... determine the yield point
In this section, you will find:
Brookfield fixed speed rheometers DVNext models : These Brookfield DVNext viscometers have several thousand speeds and can thus determine the rheological properties of your products according to the speed of rotation of the moving part or the shear rate (speed gradient, shear rate).
Brookfield rheometers at imposed speed or constraint Brookfield RST models : In addition to the functions of a Brookfield DVNext rheometer, the Brookfield RST rheometers can be used to measure imposed stress (as a function of shear stress shear stress). They also have a much wider measurement range than the analog Brookfield viscometers and rheometers, DVE, DV1M, DV2T or DV3T.
Brookfield RSO Oscillating Rheometers : While the DVNext or RST rheometers allow measurements to be made using rotating mobiles, Brookfield RSO rheometers measure by oscillation of the mobile. This makes it possible to determine the rheological properties of visco-elastic products by carrying out an amplitude sweep or a frequency sweep (respectively oscillation sweep or frequency sweep).
These different Brookfield rheometers are available in cone / plane, plane / plane, coaxial cyclinders or with vane spindles.
These various Brookfield viscometers and rheometers can be supplemented by various accessories such as Brookfield thermostatic baths, specific accessories such as for example the low volume SSA adapter, the low viscosity ULA adapter, the Thermosel oven, the Helipath system ...
These different accessories allow you to further expand the performance range of your Brookfield viscometers and rheometers and often avoid you having to invest in a new viscometer or rheometer.
Brookfied Powder Rheometers
Liquids are by definition incompressible products. On the other hand, powders are compressible products and their properties depend on the compression rate.
This is the whole purpose of the Brookfiled Rheometers for powders model PFT (Powder Flow Tester) which measures their rheological properties as a function of the compression ratio of the powders.
Some products cannot be described using a Brookfield viscometer or rheometer. Thus in the food industry, we more often speak of the texture of products.
In this section, Labomat Essor offers the Brookfield model CT3 texturometer with single load cell or the Brookfield model CTX texturometer with interchangeable load cell.
The principle of a texturometer and of making penetrate by plunging tool (disc, sphere, needle, cylinder ...) in the product by determining a deformation to be reached and by measuring the reaction force of the product or vice versa by applying a force and measuring displacement.
Thanks to a wide range of accessories, Brookfield texturometers cover a wide range of uses in the food industry, cosmetics, packaging, pharmaceuticals, etc.
In the paints industry, for example inks, it is necessary to have the necessary tools to be able to deposit with precision a known thickness of paint or ink on a support.
Labomat Essor offers film applicators (spiral bar, bar coater, 4-opening applicators, Bird applicators, Baker applicators, micrometric applicators, etc.) that can be used for manual or automatic application.
As such, we offer RK Print and TQC manual or automatic applicators, the ranges of which complement each other in terms of both price and performance.
The quality of the application also depends on the quality of the support on which the paint or ink is deposited. This is why Labomat Essor offers the world reference in terms of application support: LENETA cards.
A good quality of application and a reproducible application are the sine qua non conditions to be able to formulate using the X-Rite spectrocolorimeters proposed above.
With regard to the protection of metals, manufacturers use surface treatments or paint to give their products the appearance or corrosion resistance properties.

Labomat Essor offers a wide range of thickness measuring devices with the brands Deflesko, TQC and Winterthur
The Positector UTG wall thickness gauges manufactured by Deflesko are used to determine the wall thickness by ultrasound.
The Positector UTG thickness gauge measures the total thickness of a painted or unpainted metallic or non-metallic wall. The device is available with a corrosion probe (single echo) or with a probe for measuring the wall of painted parts (multi-echo probe)
Labomat Essor also offers coating thickness gauges on a metal support. These are the positest banana, posipen, positector 6000 and Positest DFT coating thickness gauges manufactured by Deflesko.
The Positest banana and Posipen thickness gauges are used to measure the thickness of a non-magnetic coating on any ferrous substrate. The Positest Banane and Posipen thickness gauges use a magnet that is put on the coating and we pull harder and harder on the magnet until it comes off.
The Positector 6000 and Positest DFT coating thickness gauges are used to measure coating thicknesses on metal substrates. It is possible to measure for example the thickness of metallization, the thickness of anodization, the thickness of paint, the thickness of surface treatment but also the thickness of film such as for example plastic film, packaging film, adhesive , paper. The Positector 6000 thickness gauges and Positest DFT thickness gauges are used to measure the thicknesses of dry films of liquid or powder paint. The Positector 6000 and Positest DFT coating thickness gauges operate by magnetic induction or eddy current. The thickness measurement of coatings by magnetic induction only works on a ferrous support (white iron, cast iron, steel, magnetic stainless steel). The magnetic induction coating thickness measurement technique measures the thickness of non-magnetic coating on ferrous media. The Positest DFT and Positector 6000 coating thickness gauges can also measure paint thicknesses or other types of coatings using the eddy current method. Eddy current coating thickness gauges measure any non-conductive coating on any non-ferrous metal support. The Positest DFT and Positector 6000 thickness gauges are used to measure the thickness of anodization (OAC, OAS) on aluminum but also the thickness of paint on non-ferrous support such as aluminum, copper, titanium.
