DV1 Viscometer

Our low cost continuous sensing Digital Viscometer now with timed measurement function

Product Description

DV-I Prime Digital

A continuous sensing capability for rapid viscosity measurement makes this economical digital viscometer a standout. Measures viscosity and temperature simultaneously (with an optional temperature probe). With its timed measurement function, data can easily be sent to a PC or printer. Optional software allows the DV-I Prime to collect, analyze and record test data.

SPRING TORQUE

DV-I SPRING TORQUE

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.

Temperature Probe

DV-I Prime Temperature Probe

Optional RTD Temperature Probe DVP-94Y.
Also requires special circuit board for temperature sensing. Must be ordered when instrument is purchased. Call for details.
