K26030 Ambient Temperature Laboratory Viscometer


Test Method
This viscosity technology is based on a simple and reliable electromagnetic concept. Two coils move the piston back and forth magnetically at a constant force. Proprietary circuitry analyzes the piston’s two-way travel time to measure absolute viscosity. Built-in temperature detector (RTD) senses the actual temperature in the sampling chamber. Constant in and out motion keeps samples fresh and mechanically scrubs the sampling area.

Features and Benefits
• Correlates with ASTM D445

• Viscosity measurements from 0.5 to 10,000 cP

• Requires less than 1.5mL of sample

• Fluids measured at ambient temperature

• Piston-style electromagnetic sensor



Laboratory Viscometer
The Laboratory Viscometer contains a piston-style electromagnetic sensor and an internal platinum RTD that provides continuous viscosity and temperature readings. Viscosity measurements for fluid samples with viscosity ranges of 0.5 to 10,000 cP (centipoise) are taken by determining the resistance of piston motion through the sample.
