Viscometer Rapidly Calculates Values

July 13, 2018
BYK-Gardner's viscometer is calibrated with NIST traceable oils.

The byko-visc DS Viscometer displays simultaneous direct digital readouts of Krebs units (KU), centipoise (cP), and grams (gm).


The viscometer calculates viscosity values within seconds simply by lowering the spindle into the sample, which automatically starts and stops the shaft rotation. The digital stormer maintains the rotational speed at 200 rpms in compliance with ASTM D 562.
