Portable Field Viscometer

Model PDVdi-120

Conforms to SAE AIR 5704 and ASTM D 5478

Portable Field Viscometer

A new instrument for rapid and accurate determination of the viscous properties of Newtonian and Non-Newtonian fluids including De-/Anti-icing Fluids.

The new PDVdi-120 Portable Field Viscometer consists of a viscometer main body with a reusable syringe (tube) and a falling needle attached to an extension bar with two markings.

The viscosity of the sample is determined by measuring the falling time of a needle through a predetermined distance (between two markings on the extension bar attached to the needle) within the fluids held in the reusable syringe. The falling time can be measured manually by a stopwatch.

Special Features - Field Viscosity Test, No Instrument Calibration, Minimal Disturbance of Sample's Mechanical Structure and Particle Size Distribution with Gentle Needle Passage.

Operating Procedure

top
Figure 1   Figure 2
Fig.1 Slide the syringe into the viscometer main body.   Fig.2 Pour the sample into the syringe up to the top of the viscometer main body.
     
Figure 3   Figure 4
Fig.3 Insert the needle into the syringe until the top of the needle reaches the top of the syringe and then drop the needle.   Fig.4 Measure the falling time between two markings on the extension bar attached to the needle. Use the included table to determine the viscosity.
