Viscosity

Viscosity is a measure of a fluid’s resistance to flowing under varying temperature conditions. It is typically associated with the concept of liquid density or thickness, and usually increases exponentially with decreased temperatures. This property is determined by friction between particles within the liquid or solution and is quantified as a measure of centipoise (cP). Viscosity measurements apply relatively weak thermodynamic forces to a liquid or solution to encourage the material to flow. Temperatures can be increased and torque can be applied to measure the material’s resistance to these conditions, with common applications in the food and beverage, cosmetics, and chemical sectors.

Meritics provides a substantial range of viscosity analysers suitable for a broad range of applications. The RM 100 Portable enables analysts to measure viscosity outside of laboratory conditions with a sustained accuracy of within 1% of the full scale. The First Plus is an ultra-sensitive viscosity analyser with a torque range as low as 0.005 mNm for outstanding precision.


Viscometers


Unique design removes the problems associated with spring type viscosity measurements. This makes the Lamy range very robust and replacing expensive springs and pointer assembles are a thing of the past!

For ultra-sensitive viscosity measurements, the First Touch features a torque range of 0.005 to 0.8 mNm

With its expanded programming possibilities and increased modularity, the FIRST PLUS will be the ideal tool for your application whether you use it alone or with its software.

Delivery as a single unit or with the spindle sets L1-L4 or R2-R7.
