Saybolt Viscosity Bath
Constant temperature bath with available automatic timing feature for
viscosity determinations using Saybolt viscometer tubes and orifices.
Microprocessor PID circuitry assures precise temperature control within ASTM
specified tolerances throughout the operating range of the bath. Simple
push-button controls and dual digital displays permit easy setting and
monitoring of bath temperature. Two place calibration offset is provided.
Accommodates four viscometers and four 60mL receiving flasks. Sliding draft
shields and a chemical-resistant alignment plate facilitate handling of the
flasks, and glare-free fluorescent backlighting is provided for easy viewing
of the samples. Communications software (RS232, etc.) ramp-to-set, and
other enhanced features are available at additional cost.
Automatic Timing Option — At the push of a button, the automatic
timer starts the sample flow, senses the 60mL end point, and digitally
records and displays the efflux time in 0.1 seconds resolution with an
accuracy of 0.05%. Automatic timing improves testing accuracy and
convenience, eliminating the chain and cork assembly and the need to manually
time each sample. Timer installation is available in any configuration from
one to four tubes.
Bath Construction and Safety Features — Insulated bath interior is constructed
entirely of heavy gauge stainless steel. A built-in overflow pipe and drain
valve simplifies filling of the bath fluid to the proper level. Chemical
resistant top plate provides excellent insulation and is easily removed to
allow for cleaning of the bath interior. A cooling coil for tap water or
refrigerated coolant is provided for operation at near-ambient temperatures.
Steel cabinet has levelling feet and a chemical-resistant polyurethane-epoxy
