PORTABLE MICRO-VISCOMETER COMBINES ROLLING BALL VISCOMETER AND ADVANCED DENSITY METER

Jun 03 2009

The MINIVIS 445 from Grabner® Instruments (Austria) is an automatic, portable Micro-Viscometer for determination of viscosity of all kinds of fuels, oils and other liquids in the laboratory or in the field with excellent correlation to standard ASTM D445 capillary viscometers.

The MINIVIS combines a rolling ball viscometer with an advanced density meter with an automatic filling system. The compact unit permits the precise determination of dynamic and kinematic viscosity over a wide temperature range. The instrument is fully automated, fast, portable, rugged and easy to operate.

The instrument incorporates reflection sensors that make it possible to cover a wider range of applications, including samples as dark as used or heavy oil, that are measured with the greatest accuracy and repeatability. Users appreciate the unit’s small sample volume and automatic sample feeding. Its measurement cell is easily accessible, eliminating the cleaning problems associated with other viscometers.

Built-in Peltier elements provide temperature control, eliminating the need for large water baths and allowing for quick determination of viscosity indices.
