Information on this viscosity product

Based on the Rotothinner design, this instrument is specially suited to assess the yield strength and consistency of thick paints and other materials such as gels and putties etc. A 250 ml can containing the sample is magnetically fastened onto a turntable, which is loaded with a calibrated spring

displaying an engraved scale of 0-450 gm/cm. When immersed into the sample, the flat 4 x 2 cm paddle spindle rotates automatically at 2 rpm, and drives the whole can & turntable.

After a peak reading followed by a short time of stabilisation, a steady torque value is indicated on the scale. Other paddle sizes are available on request.
