Automated Viscometers

Product release test work needed, preferably with full automation...

PSL Rheotek develops and manufactures several ranges of automated glass capillary viscometer system.

Kinematic Viscosity

The Rheotek Ubbelohde Viscometer (RUV) platform is designed to fully comply with test methods - ASTM D445-IP71, ISO 3104.

The RUV-2 Analyzer includes a viscometer bath with optional cooling, one to four measuring positions and in-situ cleaning.

The analyzer mimics each step of the manual methods and provides complete traceability of results.

Solution Viscosity

The Rheotek Polymer Viscometer   (RPV-1) is used widely throughout the world for testing a wide range of polymer, pulp and cellulose applications. First launched in 1999, a Generation 2 platform is now available in 2018 based upon a new main micro-processor. The RPV-1 Gen 2 is also more compact, however, retains its modular structure.

The RPV-2 Polymer Analyzer provides a more integrated solution, accommodating all of the main components within a single unit - including viscometer bath with cooling, optical detection system, vacuum pumps and PC processor.

Isaac - first "App" based viscometer system

In 2018, PSL Rheotek is proud to launch Isaac, a completely new "App" based viscometer system.

The Isaac viscometer is controlled by a wireless tablet which captures all viscosity results.
