Viscol-10A Automatic Kinematic Viscometer

Oil & Fuel Viscometer

Viscosity is the rate of a fluid’s internal resistance to flow. Intermolecular force, molecular mass, and temperature are the main factors that affect viscosity. Fluids that have a directly proportional flow rate with friction resistance are called Newtonian fluids. Viscosity values of Newtonian fluids are commonly determined in terms of kinematic viscosity. Using capillary (kinematic) viscometers is the best method to measure the kinematic viscosity of Newtonian fluids.

With a kinematic viscometer, viscosity is determined based on the flow time of a fluid kept at a specific temperature inside a capillary with a known diameter and length. For the kinematic viscosity measurements of Newtonian fluids, automatic viscometers provide the most reliable results with precise temperature and timing control.

Viscol-10A Automatic Viscometer offers a wide temperature and viscosity range with different models for different applications.
