Gel Timer Instrument

For gel coats, resins, potting compounds

Hot Pot Gel TimerHot Pot Gel Timer

The most popular Brookfield viscometer now measures gel time using unique magnetic coupling that attaches the glass rod to instrument. When gel time is reached, display shows both gel time and equivalent viscosity value. Glass rod is quickly and easily detached from instrument. Integrated temperature probe provides peak exotherm data if needed.

Gel Timer RVDV2T comes with magnetic coupling and glass rod, lab stand with adjustable stop for quickly positioning glass rod at proper immersion depth in test sample, and temperature probe. Test method can be run either manually or using program stored in instrument memory. Accuracy and reliability of Gel Timer RVDV2T make this instrument the preferred choice in QC for measuring gel coats, resins, and potting compounds. Viscosity data generated during the test may also prove helpful for complete characterization of material flow behavior.
