Portable Field Viscometer

 

One Touch™ - Set-up: Visco is very easy to set-up. The spindle can be attached with just "one touch" - simply insert the spindle in the instrument. Absolutely no complicated set-up required

One Hand™ - Preparation: Measurement preparation can easily be done with just one hand. Place the beaker underneath the pre-set area and place the instrument on the stand. No troublesome height adjustment necessary.

One Button™ - Measurement: Operation requires only one dial button. All operations can be performed with the simple act of "sliding" or "pushing" the dial button. No more accidental operations due to pushing the wrong button.

Uses Only 1/33 of the Standard Sample Amount

top

Standard measurement instruments for viscosity require a large amount of sample (500ml). Visco is capable of taking measurements with just 15ml of sample.

This is roughly 1/33 of the standard sample amount. Measurement can be done with only a small amount of sample, resulting in less waste of valuable sample and a significant reduction in cost.

Not only does Visco run on AC power, but it can also operate on battery power. This allows for measurements to be taken anywhere, even in places lacking power source. The instrument can also be placed directly on the beaker, making it possible for quick and simple measurements to be taken. No need to establish a specific location for measurement. With Visco, you can take measurements anytime, anywhere.
