• BVS4000 Brookfield Viscosity Liquid Bath System

BVS4000 Brookfield Viscosity Liquid Bath System



Determines the low temperature, low shear rate viscosities of gear oils, automatic transmission fluids, hydraulic oils and other lubricants by use of a rotational viscometer.

  • Conforms to ASTM D2983 and related specifications
  • Mechanically refrigerated with digital indicating temperature control
  • Operating range to -50 °C
  • 16 sample capacity

Mechanically refrigerated cold cabinet prepares samples for dynamic viscosity determinations on petroleum lubricants. A built-in turntable rotates the samples at 4 RPM per specifications. Cooling system maintains cabinet temperature within ± 0.1 °C at temperatures as low as –50 °C. Cabinet temperature is displayed in digital format on the front panel. Cabinet accommodates sixteen (16) sample cells with cell carriers. Includes insulated cover.
