KV1000 Kinematic Viscosity Bath

Kinematic viscosity is of primary importance in the design and selection of a wide range of petroleum products. Calibrated capillary viscometers are used to measure flow under gravity or vacuum at precisely controlled temperatures.

  • Accommodates six capillary viscometers
  • Variable temperature limit control
  • Conforms to ASTM D445 and related specifications

Constant temperature bath for kinematic viscosity testing of petroleum products. Accommodates six round 2" (51mm) diameter viscometer holders. Bath temperature stability of ± 0.02 °C as per ASTM requirements. Test temperatures of up to 150°C (302°F) can be selected. Temperature limit control permits the operator to select an over-temperature cut-off point to protect against accidental overheating. Control unit includes immersion heater, circulating stirrer and temperature probe. Composition top plate rests on a 12x12" (30.5x30.5cm) or 12x18" (30.5x46cm) borosilicate glass jar. Order capillary viscometers, viscometer holders and thermometer separately.
