New Viscometer Simplifies Routine Oil-Viscosity Measurements
RheoSense, Inc., has announced the release of its new viscometer, microVISC-m™. designed to simplify daily or routine measurements of lubricating oils’ viscosity.
The microVlSC-m is an excellent tool for oil-condition monitoring and It is portable, easy to use, fast, and requires only a few drops of oil. RheoSense says its microVlSC-m measures oil viscosity through an easy, one-minute test, eliminating the need to wait for test results from remote labs. The instrument requires a sample volume as small as 100 microliters.
The viscometer displays dynamic viscosity at ambient conditions. It also extrapolates kinematic viscosities at 40, 80, and 100 °C, following industry-standard ASTM D341 formulas.
The savings in time and sample volume, makes the microVlSC-m more affordable, easier and quicker than ever. It offers high return on investment, and is an ideal viscometer for field operators.
