CAP1 Viscometer image 201x583

The CAP 1000+ Viscometer is a compact, heavy-duty instrument that is ideal for fast, easy, repetitive testing on the production floor or in the QC lab. Small sample size is a plus, along with integrated temperature control built into the sample plate.

 FEATURES AND BENEFITS

  • Quick single point test
  • Choice of shear rate. Standard speeds include 750 and 900 rpm to provide shear rate at 10,000 sec-1.
  • Rapid temperature control with built-in Peltier element in sample plate
  • Meets Industry Standards: ASTM D4287, ISO 2884 and BS 3900
  • Rugged design can handle production environment
  • Small Sample Size, < 1 mL, Simplifies Testing
  • Easy to Clean
  • Customizable options
  • Parallel printer output

 LET US HELP YOU CONFIGURE THE CAP 1000+ TO PROVIDE A SIMPLE, SINGLE POINT, VISCOSITY TEST

  • Specify one speed or shear rate if this is required for your method.
  • Indicate viscosity range.
  • Select the temperature range that best suits your application:  5°C to 75°C or 50°C to 235°C
  • Choose from 10 spindles for multiple viscosity ranges
  • Brookfield will help choose the appropriate instrument configuration.
