Visco Portable Viscometer

Visco Portable Viscometer


The Visco Portable Viscometer measures viscosity in a compact and easily carried unit. It is capable of measurements with only a small amount of sample, and its simple construction and easy, one-button operation allows for anyone to assemble and operate the unit



  • Battery operated - measurements can be taken anywhere
  • Fully digital display allows for anyone to easily read results
  • Any disposable container other than the included beaker can be used
  • With Temperature Sensor
  • Displays with both cP and mPa
  • Uses Only 1/33 of the Standard Sample Amount - 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.
  • Easy to Read, Fully Digital Display - A fully digital display allows for anyone to quickly and easily read results. The simple display is easily and readily understood
  • Quick Measurements Anywhere - 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.
  • Applications: Food, beverages, milk, tomato juice/puree, sauce, ketchup, mayonnaise, olive oil, honey, jam, yogurt, butter/margarine, japanese curry, gelatin, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, cosmetics, adhesives, water glass, resins/polymers, photopolymers, paint, pigment, varnish, insulators, glycerin, hydraulic fluids, lubricant, cutting fluids, slurry, ceramic slurry
