Falling Ball Viscometer from Brookfield

The Höppler principle 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.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

  • Pivot bearing allows for quick and easy tube rotation - ideal for repeat tests
  • Connection to 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
