Understanding Viscometer (VISCO)


What is a viscometer?

A viscometer is a tool used to measure the viscosity of a material.
By measuring the viscosity, the viscometer can quantify the thickness or the amount of internal friction of a material.
(*Viscosity is a quantitative expression of viscousness)
*Some liquids are silky and smooth like water, and neba-ne-ba (slimy/sticky) liquid like honey. The degree of this smoothness or stickiness is called viscosity.

There are many different types of measurement methods for viscometer: Rotational Viscosity Meter (which is what ATAGO uses), Falling Ball Viscometer, Viscosity Cup, Line Spread Test, Capillary Viscometer, and Vibrating Viscometer (Visit here to learn more detail for each method).
Some features of our viscosity meters VISCO are tha it is easy to operate and set up, can measure with a small amount of sample, use disposable cups for measurement, and be powered by both battery and AC power supply. 

The VISCO is our portable stand size of the viscometer.
The other option will be the VISCO 895, which gives you slightly better portability since it has a lighter weight.
However, both have the same measurement range and accuracy.

The VISCO B(L) is more like a benchtop style, with a wider measurement range and flexibility in adjusting the stand height.
