RPV-1 Polymer Viscometer

Intrinsic Viscosity or IV is an important quality parameter for polymers. Measurement of IV of any polymer involves dissolving the polymer in a solvent and running the solution through a glass capillary viscometer. Exact procedures for all the commonly used polymers are given in International Test methods under ISO, ASTM, DIN, IEC, etc. Product specifications typically require the IV to measured on method compliant equipment. At PSL Rheotek, we have been supplying process industry laboratories with compliant instrumentation for 20 years.

  • Two positions Auto PET polymer system PSL-Rheotek

    RPV-1 (2) AutoPET

    The PSL Rheotek RPV-1  (2) AutoPET two position AutoPET viscometer system is configured specifically for fully automating the Intrinsic Viscosity of polyethylene terephtalate (PET) in accordance with ASTM D4603 and/or ISO 1628 Part 5. The AutoPet is the most advanced fully automated viscometer available for polyester.

    Auto systems fully integrate sample preparation, sample dissolution & sample loading, as well as flow time measurement, cleaning and reporting of results. One or two heating and stirring zones can be configured to control the dissolution of batches of samples. Both heating temperatures and stirring times are computer controlled and samples are cooled prior to being automatically loaded into the viscometer. Typical sample throughput is 6 to 8 samples per hour with two measuring positions.
