Single Bath Kinematic Viscometer for ASTM D445/446 Testing of Transparent and Opaque Liquids

Aug 17 2021

The CANNON CAV 4.1 is a fully-automated, single bath, benchtop kinematic viscometer with two 14-position sample handlers for unattended ASTM D445/446 testing. Each of the two Ubbelohde-style tubes covers a 100-fold viscosity range at values between 0.5 mm2/s (cSt) and 10,000 mm2/s (cSt) from 40°C to 150°C (down to 20°C requires TE cooling option). 

Common Applications:

  • Hydraulic oil analysis
  • Additive analysis
  • Marine fuel testing
  • Base stock analysis
  • Light and heavy fuel testing
  • Waxes/paraffin
  • Crude oil testing
  • Glycols/polyols

Automated vial washing and drying enables reuse, and reduces consumable costs. Simple, out-of-the-box installation with 35% smaller footprint than CAV-2000 series conserves precious bench space. VISCPRO Windows® 10 software application permits one controlling computer for up to four instruments, and enables programming of user-defined test methods. Automation increases precision. Run multiple predefined/user-defined test methods within the same sample tray. Easily removable, dual 14-position sample trays allow high throughput of 28 samples per hour.
