Brookfield Engineering has designed a new, more durable ball bearing suspension system that can be purchased as an option for new viscometers and rheometers as well as a retrofit on your current instrument! This new suspension replaces the traditional pivot point and jewel system and is designed for use in busy work areas where instruments experience exceptionally heavy use and/or have multiple operators.
This retrofit is available for DV-I Prime, DV-II+Pro Viscometers, or DV-III Ultra Rheometers, including Cone/Plate versions, in the torque ranges RV, HA, and HB. It is not available for instruments in the LV torque range.
The cost to retrofit your instrument with the ball bearing suspension, which includes our Calibration and Certification Service is $500. For Cone/Plate instruments, add $85 for calibration of each cone spindle.
This service can also be performed at your facility by our Onsite Technicians for an additional On-Site Service charge.
