The Visgage is a pocket viscosity comparator used by companies around the world to verify oil viscosity and perform oil analysis. Its small size and ease of use allows users to operate on site and obtain immediate results. Consistent use of the Visgage can warn users of viscosity changes.
The Visgage's ease of use makes it a great part of an oil analysis program. By monitoring lubricating oil viscosity your company can be warned when there are changes and make the appropriate decisions. If you find the viscosity of the oil increasing over time then the oil is being overheated and oxidized, or particle contaminants are being introduced. Either situation causes equipment wear and should be remediated as soon as possible.If you find your oil viscosity going down quicker than normal then there has probably been a mixup of oils. Fuel oil may be leaking into your reservoir or the wrong viscosity of oil was added to the tank. Test viscosity in minutes

Frequently Asked Questions:
Yes, the bubble has been installed at the factory to allow for expansion.
Proficient operators can get accuracies of 95% or better.
The Visgage can remain in calibration for years or even decades depending on how it is handled. We recommend that you periodically test the accuracy of the Visgage with an oil of known viscosity that is near the mid-range of the lower scale.
Visgages can be repaired at the factory. They will function like a new Visgage after the repairs are completed.
We do not sell parts for the Visgage since they must be re-calibrated so that the readings are accurate. The glass tubes can vary and they must be matched at the factory.
Yes, we manufacture special Water Glycol Visgages. We install the specific Water Glycol you wish to test in the reference tube and you compare directly against this standard.
There are no National Standards that govern the operation of the Visgage. The Visgage is user dependent and quality results are obtained by proficient use.
Oil must be cooled in a separate container before drawing it into the Visgage. The glass is shock resistant but introducing hot oil can break the plunger tube.
Gauge comes with case.
