DVPlus Viscometer


The DVPlus Viscometer is AMETEK Brookfield's latest entry-level viscometer with an advanced user interface and best-in-class features. Our newest model is suitable for all applications where accurate viscosity and yield stress measurements are needed. The easy-to-use, stand-alone interface makes DVPlus the perfect Viscometer for busy labs.

With the DVPlus Viscometer, you get it all: high accuracy, fast response time, and repeatable results.
NIST-traceable viscosity standards are available.




  • 5-inch full-color touch screen display with a dynamic user interface for direct access to the features
  • Advanced interface with enhanced controls and a real-time test indicator
  • Displayed info includes Viscosity (cP, mPa∙s, P, Pa∙s), Temperature (°C, °F or K), Torque (%, mNm, Dyne∙cm), Speed/Spindle, and Step Program Status
  • USB and Bluetooth* interface for use with the DVPlus Connect app
  • Temperature offset capability to ±5°C
  • Choice of multiple languages, including English, French, German, Portuguese, Chinese, Japanese, and Spanish
  • Total of 740 speeds for an excellent range capacity
  • Optional RTD Temperature Probe (DVP-94Y)
  • Direct access to the time measurement function (time to torque, time to temperature, time to stop).
  • Automatic range calculation:
    • Full-Scale Range (FSR) at 100%
    • Maximum Viscosity measured with Spindle / Speed Combination
  • Accuracy of ±1.0% of range
  • Repeatability of ±0.2%
  • 17025 Calibration (Optional)

Each of our standard Viscometers is 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.

Note: Additional special springs are also available upon request.


DVPlus Connect is AMETEK Brookfield's new time-saving app that monitors and records test data.

The app provides an easy way to view test data and create permanent test records. Important features and benefits enhance operator versatility in performing viscosity tests, including:

  • Monitor tests in real-time
  • View and save test data
  • USB and Bluetooth* connection options
  • Available for Windows (iOS and Android coming soon)
  • Print via PC

Need help? Our Education section may be just the thing to clarify unfamiliar terms and help start you on your way to a better understanding of viscosity. Learn about viscosity and rheological relationships, Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids, and how an AMETEK Brookfield instrument can help your production process and much more.

We recommend that this instrument be returned to Brookfield or an authorized dealer on an annual basis for our Calibration & Repair Service. Having this annual maintenance done will ensure the instrument's long life and optimal performance.
