Rotational Viscometers

Digital Viscometer (available only in North America)

To measure the absolute viscosity a rotational viscometer is used. For non-Newtonian liquids a digital viscometer that applies a precise shear rate is needed. For laboratory viscosity measurement BYK-Gardner offers a comprehensive line of rotational viscometers. The viscometer product line can measure viscosity from a near water-like viscosity to a very high viscosity range for epoxy, sealants, and paste. To measure viscosity under a high shear rate Cone and Plate viscometers are available. The easy to use digital Stormer viscometer is also part of the rotational viscometer family.

Model DV-E

Quick Disconnect Accessory for Model DV-E viscometer

UL Adapter Accessory for Model DV-E viscometer

The DV-E model is an easy to use digital viscometer that has a wide viscosity range for all liquid viscosity applications.
The quick disconnect accessory makes it easy to switch spindle and reduce viscometer wear.
The UL adapter is used to extend the range and improve the accuracy of low viscosity measurement.
