The Global Leader In Viscosity For Over 75 Years


Brookfield AMETEK

Dial Reading

With Multi-Speed Electronic Drive

Product Description

Dial Reading Viscometer

The original Brookfield Dial Reading Viscometer is the lab standard used around the world.

Now it's improved with a multi-speed electronic drive and ergonomically designed speed control knob. Quickly select any one of 10 pre-set speeds (8 speeds on LVT models). This new direct-drive design means extremely quiet operation and greater versatility. The new Universal Power Supply facilitates the use of worldwide power sources.

Each of our standard Laboratory Viscometers/ Rheometers are supplied with an internal spring used to calculate the viscosity of a material. These springs have different measuring capabilities:

  • LV is for low viscosity materials and can measure the “thinnest” materials. Typical examples include inks, oils, and solvents.
  • RV is for medium viscosity materials than those measured with an LV torque. Typical examples include creams, food, and paints.
  • HA is for higher viscosity materials than those measured with an RV torque. Typical examples include gels, chocolate and epoxies.
  • HB is for even higher viscosity materials than those measured with an HA torque spring. Typical examples include asphalt, caulking compounds, and molasses.

Additional special springs are also available upon request. To learn more about spring ranges and model selection, please call Brookfield AMETEK or one of our authorized dealers.
