The world’s only truly portable viscometer
The Hydramotion Viscolite 700 is the world’s only truly portable, handheld viscometer. Any fluid volume, just dip the tip and read. You can even stir the fluid with it!
- Fast, accurate and robust
- Truly portable viscosity meter
- Solid 316 Stainless Steel construction
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.
Digital precision in an instant
Measurements are shown instantly on a digital display. The lightweight readout unit and probe, combined with long battery life, make the Viscolite hand-held viscometer well suited to long duty in the factory, laboratory or on the move.
Accurate and tough
The Hydramotion Viscolite 700 handheld viscometer 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 portable Viscolites are factory calibrated in an ISO9001 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.
Lab accuracy in the field
Why take samples back to the lab when you can get lab accuracy in the field? With its long battery life, the robust yet lightweight Viscolite handheld portable viscometer is perfect for mobile viscosity measurement. All portable Viscolites come with their own carrying case, so the instrument is ready to go where you go. And then straight into action without any setup or effort. That’s why, for so many companies, the Viscolite has become the ideal solution for their customer service, field and on-site viscosity measurement requirements.
Factory floor viscometry
Viscosity measurement in tough conditions calls for a tough viscometer. That’s why the Viscolite 700 portable handheld viscometer, with its solid stainless steel probe, is used extensively on factory floors in a huge range of industries. It can take the expected knocks but also deliver the sensitivity and accuracy you require where you need it. Whatever your business – inks, oils, food, chemicals – you’ll find the Viscolite indispensable for keeping on top of product viscosity.
Why the viscolite works so well
The portable handheld Viscolite includes an integrated temperature probe and temperature-correction software as standard. 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. Operation is quick and easy. The solid rod sensor is simply immersed in the fluid under test and viscosity is immediately displayed on the dedicated readout unit. The standard d21 model can be used with any fluid volume over about 100 ml, while the small-sample d15 model requires little more than 10 ml. Once measurements are completed, the probe is cleaned within seconds.
