The new modular microviscometer from Anton Paar provides accurate viscosity determination from only 400µL sample volumes. Results allow deep insights into the viscosity of liquids, providing accuracy up to 0.5% and repeatability up to 0.1%. The microviscometer is available as a stand-alone viscometer or in combination with a DMA M density meter for simultaneous determination of density, kinematic viscosity and dynamic viscosity. Combinations with other parameters, such as sound velocity, are also available.
Depending on the task, the Lovis 2000 M/ME microviscometer provides the following benefits:
Easy-operation viscometer: Manual operation of Lovis 2000 M/ME requires only selection of the measuring method, sample filling and pressing “Start”. Connecting a Plug and Play sample changer enables automatic measurement of up to 96 samples at the push of a button. Temperature control is quick and precise. Under optimal conditions, results are ready after 30 seconds.
Low-viscosity rolling-ball rheometer: Lovis 2000 M/ME is also a “lo vis” rolling-ball rheometer. It provides the option of varying the inclination, which corresponds to the shear rate. The microviscometer therefore determines the shear rate dependence of low-viscosity liquids, which makes it suitable for zero-shear viscosity investigations.
All-round viscometer: Lovis 2000 M/ME is specially designed for low-viscosity liquids but can be used for viscosity measurement on samples with a viscosity of up to 10,000 mPa.s, at any temperature from 5 °C to 100 °C. Lovis 2000 M/ME is also suitable for measuring highly corrosive or aggressive samples.
