Viscosity Measuring Equipment


Viscosity Measuring Equipment Calibration Services – CMS Adelaide


Our fast and efficient Viscosity Equipment Calibration Service can be used to accurately Calibrate many types of viscometers.


Our Viscosity Measuring Equipment Calibration Services

Viscometers are used to measure the viscosity of liquids and they come in many forms. The main types calibrated by CMS are the Ford Cup type and the rotational types such as those manufactured by Brookfield.

The Ford Cup types (such as Zahn) use different shaped cones with exit nozzles of various diameters. The viscosity is determined by measuring how long the liquid under test takes to drain from the cup. Measurements are carried out in accordance with ISO 2431, ASTM D 1200. Note that viscosity is greatly influenced by temperature.

Rotational viscometers use the torque required to rotate a disk or a bob in the liquid at a known speed.


Viscosity Measuring Equipment Applications

Accurate measurements of viscosity are vital in manufacturing when certain characteristics of materials such as pourability or pumpability are required. Although most types of viscosity measuring equipment are robust, users need to ensure that they remain in good working order and accurate.


Viscosity Measuring Equipment Calibration Procedure

Viscosity Measuring Equipment is first thoroughly cleaned and then checked to ensure that it is not damaged. CMS uses calibrated state-of-the-art master equipment to verify that viscosity measuring apparatus is indicating in accordance with requirements and if not, adjusted (where possible).

Viscosity Measuring Equipment is returned to clients with a comprehensive calibration report within three working days of receipt.
