Bostwick Type Consistometer

Meets ASTM Designation: F 1080, Standard Test Method For Determining The Consistency Of Viscous Liquids Using A Consistometer. Meets MIL-R-81294B

Bostwick Type Consistometer Significances and Use - ASTM F1080 states the measurement of flow gives results that cannot be predicted with viscosity measurements due to surface tension and density effect. The measured flow is related to flow performance of viscous materials sprayed on aircraft surfaces or other large areas.

This stainless steel device is designed to determine the flow of a standard volume of thick liquid or semisolid under its own weight. It consists of a stainless steel reservoir with trap door, engraved graduated track with sidewalls and leveling screws with bubble level.

Precision and Bias

top
Precision
Reproducibility - Viscous materials often vary in consistency dependent upon age, temperature, and shear history. Caution should be exercised between laboratories regarding the history of a sample. Duplicate results by the same operator on the same sample shall be within 0.5 cm.
Bias
No statement can be made regarding bias as there are no absolute nor widely accepted standards for the property measured by the consistometer.
 
It is the responsibility of the user of the equipment described herein to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
