Brookfield celebrates 80 years

16 June 2014

In 2014 Brookfield Engineering is celebrating 80 years of innovation and customer service. It began in 1933 when Donald Brookfield, Sr envisioned a new, unconventional approach to measuring viscosity.

His experimentation with motors and springs in the basement of his family’s home resulted in the creation of a single-speed instrument that would ultimately become known as ‘the world standard’ in viscosity measurement and control. Through the middle years Brookfield Engineering addressed issues of temperature control, small sample volumes and very low viscosities, continually adapting to the changing needs of industry. As technology marched forward, Brookfield answered the call by producing a wide range of digital and programmable viscometers & rheometers. In 2004 it entered the Texture Analysis market, providing a perfect complement to their line of R&D and QC testing instrumentation. And in 2010, the PFT Powder Flow Tester made its debut.
