Ford Standard Dip Cups (with No. 3, 4, and 5 orifices)
This cup has the same capacity as the Standard Laboratory type Ford Viscosity Cup designed for use with a stand. However, this new cup is fitted with a red anodized aluminum handle and the drip ring at the top of the cup has been eliminated.

|Ford Dip Cup Number||Standard Oil||Approximate Centistoke Value||Efflux Time In Secs.|
|To find the exact efflux time in seconds, substitute the centistoke value of the oil from the bottle label in the conversion table furnished with the cup. Read from the table the applicable efflux time in seconds or use the formula on the reverse side of the table.|
ISO Dip Cup
The physical dimensions of the new ISO Dip viscosity cups have been chosen to provide just one half of the efflux time in seconds of the Gardco Standard ISO cups of the same number and orifice. The inverted cone bottom shape of the cup terminating in the removable stainless-steel orifice is retained to insure a sharp end point and best possible comparable accuracy. For the first time a dip cup has been developed primarily for field use which is a direct counterpart of the cup used in the laboratory. Gardco is pleased to have made this contribution and to introduce the ISO Mini Dip Cup series along with the new Gardco Standard ISO series. The Gardco Dip series has all of the advantages listed for the Standard series except it does not have a drip ring at the top of the cup & a handle is attached for support. The Dip cup capacity is one-half that of the Standard cup.

It is helpful, and results will be more consistent, if all viscosity determinations are made in a room that is free from drafts or quick temperature change, and is within ±3°C (±5°F) of the viscosity measuring temperature of 25°C.
Ford Dip Cups
The Gardco Mini Dip Cups should have the same care as the Gardco Standard Series as they are produced to the same close tolerance. The use of the dip cup, however, is somewhat different:
