LAUDA Glass capillary viscometers
• Kinematic viscometers in accordance with ISO 3105, DIN 51562, ASTM D445
• For automatic and manual viscosity measuring
• Greatest precision and durability
Viscosity measuring with Ubbelohde, Cannon-Fenske and Micro-Ostwald capillary viscometers
Glass capillary viscometers are available in va¬rious designs, which differ with respect to appli¬cation area, accuracy and operation. As of now, they can be supplied by LAUDA in the Ubbeloh¬de, Cannon-Fenske, Micro-Ostwald and special designs. For high-precision, automatic measu¬ring, the Ubbelohde version with the suspen¬ded level is used by preference, among other reasons because the flow time is independent of the precise sample volume.
To keep the measuring times within the optimum range between approx. 60 and 600 s, different capillary diameters are supplied to cover the complete viscosity range. The procedure, parti-cularly with automatic LAUDA measuring tech¬nology and precise temperature control using LAUDA clear-view thermostats, is unrivalled in terms of accuracy for measuring liquids with nearly Newtonian (ideal) flow properties.
