BLB-DIN, Brookfield Liquid Bath

Low-Temperature Brookfield Viscosity

Similar to the D2983, the German Standard DIN 51398 determines the apparent viscosity of gear oils and related fluids at low-temperature. Features programmable control, digital display to 0.01°C, and cooling at 1°C/min to –55°C.

The BLB-DIN can be adjusted to run either the D2983 test (using SimAir® Cells) or the DIN standard.

Models available:

BLB 701
BLB 702
SimAir® | DIN Liquid Bath

ASTM D2983
IP 267
DIN 51398

  • Unique Tannas SimAir® Test Cells provide proper sample temperature control for accurate, precise results and permits each test cell to operate independently, increasing productivity.
  • Features a 12-position carousel with 12 independent sample cells
  • BLB models:  Capable of measuring a broad temperature range of +30°C to –70°C (BLB702) and +30°C to –40°C (BLB 701).
  • SimAir®/DIN model:  Capable of measuring a broad temperature range of +30°C to –55°C.
  • Fully self-contained internal hermetic refrigeration system – no external refrigeration units or controllers needed.
  • Digital temperature controller keeps bath temperature within +/- 0.1°C.
  • Small bench top footprint with large illuminated viewing window.
  • Includes top mount for Brookfield viscometer (viscometer available separately).
  • Internal air system provides a continuous blanket of dry air over samples to eliminate moisture buildup.
  • Safety features include high-pressure cutout, high temperature limits, and low level shutdown.
  • CE Mark

A user-friendly touchscreen viscometer facilitates D2983 and DIN 51398 testing.
The patented SimAir™ Test Cells utilize a unique air-gap between the test sample and the liquid bath medium to simulate the original air bath method.
The BLB Test Cell Carousel accommodates twelve (12) samples, allows convenient alignment of each cell to the appropriate test position, and holds both SimAir™ and DIN glassware.
The SimAir™ Quick Connectors allow for swift attachment or removal of the spindle from the viscometer shaft which helps reduce fluid disturbance and viscometer wear, and eliminates cross threading.
