The Falling Ball Viscometer is based on the Höppler principle which is used to measure the viscosity of Newtonian liquid by measuring the time required for a ball to fall under gravity through a sample-filled tube that is inclined at an angle. The average time of three tests is taken; the result is converted into a viscosity value using a simple formula.
Pivot bearing allows for quick and easy tube rotation
Ideal for repeat tests
Connects to a circulating bath for temperature control of sample
Set of six balls to test a wide variety of samples
Complete with temperature probe
Accuracy 0.5% to 2.0% depending on ball being used.
