Automatic Programmable Viscometer

The Model 45 APV (Automatic Programmable Viscometer) allows for pre-programmed customized test schedules using touch screen controls and digital measurement technology.

Custom testing profiles can be created and saved on the unit, no external computer is required. Data is graphed on screen and saved into memory as tests are performed. The data can later be exported to an external drive through the USB port.

This Couette type coaxial viscometer measures the shear stress in the gap between an outer rotating cylinder (rotor) and an inner suspended bob. The viscosity measurements are made by rotating the rotor at a known velocity and measuring the drag (torque) that is exerted on the bob. This measured torque value is then used to compute the viscosity in centipoise and dial units.
