Abstract
The effect of addition of dextran on the apparent viscosity of molasses was studied, using a Brookfield Rheometer. The apparent viscosity was found to increase with the addition of dextran and decrease with increase in rpm. T he behaviour observed with and without dextran was pseudoplastic. The appar ent viscosity of molasses was found to depend on temperature. The dependenc e of apparent viscosity on temperature was related through the Arrhenius la w. The activation energy observed was in the range of 2.237-2.482 kcal/g. m ol.
