U-Visc kinematic viscometer

Dec 10 2018 Read 278 Times

The Omnitek U-Visc combines several unique features, making it the instrument of choice in many applications, ranging from QC to R&D to used oil analysis. While offering full compliance with ASTM D445/D446, the specially designed viscometer tubes cover a 100-fold range.

The capillary tubes are based on the well-known and proven Ubbelohde design. Available with single or dual solvent cleaning, the instrument measures kinematic viscosity in lubricants between 0.15 and 25,000 mm2/s.

Designed to be versatile and flexible, yet easy to use. Different models are available ranging from 1 bath with 1 or 2 tubes, up to 2 baths with 1 or 2 tubes per bath, where each bath works independently. Each bath features a sampling tray with 16 samples per tube, allowing completely unattended operation at different temperatures. Depending on the viscosity of the sample, the instrument can process up to 12 samples per tube per hour, leading to a maximum capacity of up to 40 samples per hour, satisfying even the needs of high volume labs running several hundred samples per day. An optional sample preheater allows processing samples such as waxes and heavy fuel oils as well.
