The analytical choice in most laboratories is the rotational viscometer, which measures the viscous drag on a rotating disk having a known spacing to the cylinder containing the sample being measured.
The primary goal of the initial testing program was to compare the solid-state viscometer to existing ASTM methods.
The viscometer performed reliably and was accurate to within [+ or -]10% of the laboratory reference viscosity.
Glass capillary viscometers are often used in quality control applications for the oil & gas, plastics, and organic chemistry industries.
Like the kingdom searching for a princess sensitive enough to be kept awake by a single pea, segments of the food industry are seeking an in-line viscometer that is sensitive and consistent when processing highly viscous, non-Newtonian fluids with particulates.
Tenders are invited for Procurement Of Viscometer (Oil Bath) Provided With Microprocessor Temperature Control Between Ambient And 150 Deg.
The DV-100 disposable viscometer with tube and 7-sample preheating block reduces testing time since instrument cleaning is not required.
With the push of a button, the viscometer glides up and down, allowing for quick positioning, rapid sample change and improved laboratory efficiency.
One of the three instruments is a high speed cone/plate viscometer (as described in D4287, "High-Shear Viscosity Using a Cone/Plate Viscometer") that provides useful data related to brushability and sprayability.
says its new viscometer line features three models, each of which is suited for a unique user requirement: the Thermo Scientific Haake Viscotester E ("the expert model"), for automatic flow curve measurements with full PC control; Viscotester D ("the distinct model"), for routine viscosity measurements with data transfer; and Viscotester C ("the convenient model"), for manual viscosity measurements.
The vacuum on the eight-screw MRS device is controlled by an in-line viscometer located before the melt pump that feeds the die, The viscometer sends a signal to raise or lower the vacuum to maintain consistent melt viscosity.
