Ametek Brookfield are the Market Leader in Viscosity Measurement in the world.
The brand has been considered the world standard in viscosity measurement and control of liquids and semi-solids for more than 80 years.
Viscosity behaviour allows manufacturers to understand and gather precious information about their product: predicting its pourability, its performance in a dipping or coating operation, or the ease with which it may be handled, processed, or used. The interrelation between rheology and other product dimensions often makes the measurement of viscosity the most sensitive or convenient way of detecting changes in colour, density, stability, solids content, and molecular weight.
Available Range of Viscometers:
CAP1000 Viscometer: The CAP 1000+ is the ideal viscometer for fast, easy, repetitive testing on the production floor or in a QC lab as it is a compact yet heavy-duty instrument. There are small samples sizes allowed and an integrated temperature control built into the sample plate.
CAP2000 Viscometer: The CAP 2000+ expands on temperature and viscosity ranges with variable speed capability. It offers lower shear rates that make it suitable for many applications that small sample volumes and temperature control are necessary. This instrument is perfect for environments where typical instruments don’t last as it is rugged and has an easy-to-use design.
Dial Reading Viscometer: The original Dial Reading Viscometer has been the lab standard around the world since 1934. Brookfield have since improved their current units to have multi-speed electronic drive and ergonomically designed speed control knob so selecting any of the 10 pre-set speeds is fast and easy. There is a direct-drive design which allows for extremely quiet operation and versatility.
DV1 Digital Viscometer: The DV1 Digital Viscometer is a standout due to the continuous sensing capability for rapid viscosity measurement. There is a choice of 18 different speeds to assist in measuring viscosity and temperature simultaneously. Data can easily be sent to a printer or PC due to the timed measurement function and optional software allows the DV1 to collect, analyse and record test date also.
DV2T Viscometer: The DV2 has many features to assist in fast and easy viscosity measurement such as a 5-inch colour display to guide users through test creation and data gathering. There are new powerful programming capabilities and results analysis involving data averaging and QC limits with alarms. Multi-step test protocols are created using a Program Generator Software and can be uploaded to the DV2T through a USB Flash Drive. The Test Data collected can be recorded directly to a local printer or sent to a PC.
DVE Low Cost Digital Viscometer: The DVE is a combines the traditional Brookfield excellence to provide reliable viscosity readings with economy and ease of operation. This viscometer contains a user-friendly interface that allows operators to change the parameters easily and test like a pro. The digital display allows guarantees easy and accurate readout of test results for simultaneous measurement of viscosity and torque.
DVNext Rheometer: The latest model by Brookfield that combines new advanced features with the repeatability and reliability that is typically expected! This is an easy-to-use, standalone instrument that can measure viscosity and yield stress. This viscometer is also available in a Standard Version and a 21 CFR Part 11 Compliant version. There is also a Cone/Plate version that for routinely determining absolute viscosity of fluids in small sample volumes.
