Quick determination of viscosity index
Apr 11 2019 Read 157 Times
The SVM 4001 from Anton Paar provides an unbeatable combination of features that simplify the measurement process. The innovative double-cell design of SVM 4001 smart viscometer enables a quick determination of viscosity index (VI) by simultaneous measurements at 40 °C and 100 °C from a single syringe. As each of the measuring cells also contains an integrated density oscillator, density measurements according to ASTM D4052 at each temperature are performed as well. The minimum required sample volume is only 2.5 mL. The viscosity index results according to D2270 as well as API calculations are automatically shown on the touchscreen. Moreover, SVM 4001 allows for concurrent determination of viscosity and density at any two temperatures between 15 °C and 100 °C. This smart viscometer is the ideal solution for measuring lubricating oils, base oils, additives, and in-service oils.
