• KV1000 Kinematic Viscosity Bath

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) dia. 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 overtemperature cutoff 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.
