Range of viscometers for oils and fuels

Apr 26 2019 Read 315 Times

Anton Paar's SVM™ 3001 is a highly precise viscometer with an integrated density measuring cell. A single measuring cycle on a small sample volume yields kinematic viscosity, density, dynamic viscosity, viscosity index, and more. One combined measuring cell covers the entire measuring range for viscosity, density, and temperature and is filled in one go. A minimum sample amount of only 2 mL is sufficient for multiparameter results according to standards. The SVM™ 3001 has a wide measuring range from -60 °C to +135 °C with unprecedented heating/cooling rates of up to 20 °C/min, allowing for measurements of samples ranging from jet fuel to crude oils, heavy fuels and waxes. As the heating is electrical, no thermal transfer liquids are needed for temperatures down to -20 °C.

The innovative double-cell design of SVM™ 4001 allows for 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 and ISO 12185 at each temperature are simultaneously performed. The minimum sample volume needed for Viscosity Index determination and the density measurements is only 2.5 mL. The Viscosity Index results according to D2270 as well as freely selectable API calculations are automatically shown on the touchscreen.
