Houillon viscometer now includes an optional autosampler

Apr 16 2021

The latest generation of Omnitek’s S-flow builds on the strong foundation of its predecessors to offer the ultimate in automatic viscosity testing of Newtonian samples such as petroleum products, complying fully with ASTM D7279 and correlating with ASTM D445. The system offers all the tried and tested advantages of a Houillon-type tube design such as short process times, small sample volume, and low solvent consumption. 

The new S-flow IV⁺ consists of a 2-bath system with 2 tubes in each bath, providing a total of 4 tubes. The baths were designed to work independently, making it possible to use both baths at the same temperature, or at different temperatures, ranging from 20 °C to 120 °C. Other options include dual solvent cleaning and integrated Duplo testing which obtains 2 flow time determinations with only 1 sample injection.

When paired with the Cito autosampler the S-flow turns into a fully automatic system. The Cito can work together with 1 or even 2 S-flow systems at the same time. The Cito S-flow IV autosampler has excellent repeatability and the multiple tray options make the Cito a very flexible system, while still easy to operate. The Cito autosampler is a highly efficient, compact, fast, and affordable system, operates unattended and it increases both productivity and efficiency in your lab, making it the ideal autosampler for kinematic viscosity applications.
