The Viscolite is amazingly robust – able to withstand the most heavy-handed use without sacrificing outstanding accuracy and sensitivity. You can even stir the fluid with it! Furthermore, the absence of any moving parts, seals or bearings means maintenance is virtually eliminated. All Viscolites are factory calibrated in an ISO 9001 laboratory and come complete with their own carrying case, User Manual, and Calibration Certificate. A standard feature is integral temperature measurement for automatic temperature correction of viscosity.
The solid stainless steel sensor is simply immersed into the fluid to obtain an immediate viscosity measurement. There is no limit on vessel size or fluid volume, so long as the tip of the probe is covered. Simply wipe clean after use.
- Fast, accurate and robust
- Hand-held or retort stand clamped
- Solid 316 Stainless Steel construction
Ideal viscometer for testing almost any fluid
Most traditional laboratory viscometers need to be handled with care. Delicate parts, tedious cleaning and maintenance often make for fussy and laborious use. Everything’s different with the Viscolite. Instant viscosity readings and a simple wipe-clean sensor give you speed without compromising accuracy. Small sample volumes, retort stand clamping, and a narrow sensor for direct immersion into bottles add to the Viscolite’s versatility.
Benchtop Viscolite offers PC connectivity
The mains-powered benchtop version of the popular Viscolite portable viscometer provides real-time continuous viscosity monitoring in laboratory-scale equipment. The Viscolite HP offers all the benefits of the portable version with the added advantages of a 4-20mA analog viscosity output and an RS232 serial data link for connection to a PC. With a range of 0 to 10,000 cP in fluids at -20 degrees to +100 degrees C, the instrument has very high repeatability and excellent sensitivity, even at low viscosity. It is ideal for tracking changes in viscosity during polymerization reactions in the laboratory. Operation is quick and easy. As with the portable instrument, the solid rod sensor is simply immersed in the fluid under test and viscosity is immediately displayed on the dedicated readout unit. The standard HP-d21 can be used with any fluid volume over about 100ml, while the small-sample HP-d15 model requires little more than 10 ml. Once measurements are completed, the probe is cleaned within seconds.
