Hand-held unit checks viscosity of many liquids, including liquid asphalt cement with rubber additives (FLDOT).
Viscotester employs the rotating cylinder principle.
A rotor turning at constant speed is inserted into the liquid to be measured.
The resistance to the rotor movement caused by the viscosity (torque) is measured using a special mechanism to obtain direct readings in millipascal-seconds (mPa.s) or decipascal-seconds (dPa.s).
Supplied with 3 rotors for various viscosity levels.
Measurement accuracy is +/- 10% of indicated value.
Reproduciblity is +/- 5% (calibrated with silicon oil).
Stand Not Included VT-2205
