Information on this viscometry product

The VM range of spindle viscometers from Sheen Instruments, are the ideal solution for performing precise viscosity measurements quickly and efficiently. Ease of use and versatility enable them to be used in many industrial applications where the determination of fluid properties and behaviour is essential. The principle of measurement is simple, but reliable, based on the well-established method of measuring the resistance of a spindle rotating in the sample under test. The resultant torque measurement, rotational speed and spindle properties are then combined to automatically calculate the resultant viscosity value.
