U-Visc

Kinematic ViscometerKinematic viscometer

The OmniTek Kinematic Viscometer U-Visc combines several unique features, makingit the instrument of choice in many applications, ranging fromQC to R&D to used oil analysis. While offering full compliancewith ASTM D445/ASTM D446, the specially designed viscometer tubescover a 100-fold range, e.g. from 1 to 100 mm2/s.

The Kinematic Viscometer tubes are based on the well-known and proven Ubbelohde design, but only require 8-12 ml of sample and approx.10-15 ml of solvent for each cleaning cycle. Available with single or dual solvent cleaning, the instrument measures kinematic viscosity in lubricants between 0.5 and 10,000 mm2/s.
