K34710 BV3000 Brookfield Viscosity Liquid Bath


 

Test Method
Determines the low temperature, low shear rate viscosities of gear oils, automatic transmission fluids, hydraulic oils and other fluid lubricants by use of the Brookfield viscometer.

Features and Benefits
• Sample soaking and testing in a single bath, eliminating the need for an air bath and the risk of sample temperature rise during transfer

• Redesigned for improved control of sample movement and handling during testing

• Microprocessor PID temperature control duplicates the sample cooling rates in ASTM D2983

• Up to 40 cooling/testing temperature profiles can be stored in memory

• Redesigned turntable mechanism seals out moisture to minimize ice formation

 


 

BV3000 Brookfield Viscosity Liquid Bath
Constant temperature liquid bath permits testing of samples without the risk of sample temperature rise. After cooling in the air bath, the sample must be transferred to the balsa cell carrier for testing with the Brookfield viscometer. If the sample is not tested quickly, there is the risk of sample temperature rise. The Brookfield Viscosity Liquid Bath eliminates this risk by permitting the sample to be tested in a constant temperature environment. The Brookfield viscometer mounts directly on the bath and the samples are rotated into position under the spindle by means of a built-in turntable. Cooling system maintains temperature with 0.05C stability in the range of +10C to –55C. Bath temperature is displayed in digital format.
