KV-2 Low Temperature Viscometer Bath – 94710-4

The Seta KV-2 is a two-place low-temperature viscosity bath designed to achieve ultra-high stability in the temperature range of +20 °C to -40 °C. The bath offers high stability of and ±0.01 at -20°C. Temperature is measured by a PT100 probe, a twin display shows the current and set temperature.

The instrument has a small footprint and is ideally suited for busy labs. It is fully self-contained and requires no external chillers or connections. A heated top plate and viewing window prevent condensation and ice formation. The easy to use controller features large 13 mm digits and high intensity, long-life ultra-bright LED lighting ensures clear bath visibility at all times.

Methods: ASTM D445, ASTM D446, IP 71, BS 188, BS 2000-71-2 & ISO 3105, BS EN ISO 3104 & BS 2000-71.1 & ISO 3104

Features

  • Temperature range -40°C to +20°C
  • High stability ±0.01 at -20°C
  • Accommodates up to 2 standard viscometer tubes
  • Illuminated Bath
  • Insulated and heated viewing window
  • Heated top plate

The KV2 bath requires 2 Ubbelodhe Viscometer tubes. The maximum viscosity of jet fuel at -20 °C is 8 mm2/s so we recommend that one each of the following viscometers is used:

• Calibrated Ubbelodhe Viscometer size code 0B which has a viscosity range of 1 to 5 mm2/s. Seta Ref 11643/03
• Calibrated Ubbelodhe Viscometer size code 1 which has a viscosity range of 2 to 10 mm2/s. Seta Ref 11643/04

The bath has an independent over-temperature and low fluid level cut-out and a warning alarm for safety in the laboratory environment.

Data logging via the external RS-232 port is possible when connected to a PC and suitable software.

The insulated bath is sealed by 8 mm thick glass front and rear with 60 mm plexiglass providing additional insulation.
