Dip And Read. That’s all it takes to use the Viscolite. No setting up or taking samples.
Simply immerse the solid stainless steel sensor into the fluid to obtain immediate viscosity and temperature measurements. Any fluid volume, just dip the probe – and read. You can even stir the fluid with it!
Unlike other viscometers the Viscolite measurement is unaffected by the size of vessels holding the fluid. Anything from a test-tube to full tank.
It is also extremely tough and portable. So you can use it freely anywhere. Instant high precision viscosity in the lab, on the factory floor or on the move.
There are two basic versions of the Hydramotion Viscolite 700: the fully portable, battery-powered models; and the laboratory/benchtop models, which can be interfaced to a computer.
All models give readings of viscosity, temperature and temperature-corrected viscosity on the handheld display. It is usually important to have the temperature measured at the same time as the viscosity, since viscosity is so temperature sensitive. Unless you are using temperature-corrected data, it can be difficult to compare two different batches of fluid.
The Viscolite portable viscometer is a versatile tool offering an instantaneous viscosity measurement in the lab, factory or field. The Viscolite 700 d21 is the standard fully portable handheld model, with a 21mm diameter sensor, and measures up to 10,000 cP. The Viscolite 700 d15 is the small-sample fully portable handheld model, with a shorter 15mm diameter sensor, ideal for fluid sample volumes down to 10 ml; it measures up to 5,000 cP. A small-sample measurement cell is available for the d15, to get down to 10 ml sample volume.
The HP-d21 and HP-d15 are the laboratory/benchtop models of the Viscolite 700. The transducers may be clamped in a stand or hand-held. The signal processors require a 24 V DC power supply, and can be interfaced to a computer for recording the data and/or graphing the outputs. The small-sample measurement cell also works with the HP-d15. Special ViscoLink software is also available that makes viewing the data on the computer even easier, and can configure the system, export data to Excel, etc.
We accept major credit cards, and we have both portable Viscolite models (d21 and d15) in stock for immediate delivery from California. Lab models (HP-d21 and HP-d15) are typically 2-3 weeks delivery and ship from the UK. Ship weight for the portable models is 6 lbs. Ground shipping within the US is usually less than $70.
