Software

Software

When advanced sample analysis is required, Brookfield's Capcalc application software can "control" the CAP 2000+ Viscometer from any PC. Capcalc software provides automatic data capture and graphical data display to facilitate analysis of test samples.

The software allows control of a sample's temperature for integrated viscosity/temp tests between 5°C and 75°C or between 50°C and 235°C, depending on the model you choose. It also allows the user to specify speed ramps and/or temp ramps for more rigorous material testing.

 

Ordering Information

top

The CAP  Viscometer is supplied with choice of one cone spindle. Choice of operating temperature range must also be specified with order:  5° C to 75° C,  or 50° C to 200° C.

Accessories include:  Certified Viscosity Standard Fluids which are necessary for performing calibration tests; additional standard cone spindles or custom designed spindles; Brookfield CAPCALC application software.All Brookfield Viscometers are guaranteed for one year against defects in materials and workmanship.

 
Helpful Hints
  1. Need Extended Range? - Order additional cones or optional torque range. High Torque (ICI Specifications): 181,000 dyne • cm, Low Torque: 7,970 dyne • cm (Automotive Paints) Comes standard with High Torque range - Low Torque (for Automotive Industry) also available.

  2. Order Brookfield Viscosity Standards to verify calibration. - Specific Standards for each cone are available.

  3. You can turn your CAP2000+ into a "Rheometer". - Order CAPCALC software.

Brookfield Cap Oil Fluids (4 oz.)
For calibrating CAP Series cones each spindle has its own fluid.
How to select a CAP Fluid

  • Determine which viscometer is being used: High Torque or Low Torque.
  • Determine which temperature model is being used: Low Temperature (5°C - 75°C) or High Temperature (50°C - 235°C)
  • Determine which cone is being used.
