High temperature constancy and visual observation
Transparent thermostats manufactured by SCHOTT Instruments have been specially designed to measure the viscosity of Newtonian liquids in capillary viscometers. They can be used for both manual measurements and, when used in connection with viscosity measuring equipment, for automatic measurements.
The most important characteristics of the transparent thermostats are their ability to maintain a constant temperature and capability of visual observation of the flow of the fluid in the viscometer. The transparent thermostats of the series CT 53 and CT 54 are suitable for viscosity measurements in compliance with DIN 51 562 (Part 1) and ASTM D 445. They are comprised of a stainless steel bath with insulating glass, a coated steel casing and a bath thermostat. In addition, the CT 54 has an integrated discharge outlet on one side to drain the bath. An RS-232-C interface enables it to be connected to a PC.
