VISGAGE®

Pocket Viscosity Comparator

The Visgage is used by companies around the world to verify oil viscosity and perform oil analysis. Its small size and ease of use allows users to operate the Visgage on site and obtain immediate results. Consistent use of the Visgage can warn users of viscosity changes.VISGAGE

Visgage Models

top
Saybolt Universal Second Models:
Saybolt Universal Seconds is an English kinematic viscosity standard that is gradually being replaced by the International Centistokes. Our Visgages are calibrated at room temperature but give the equivalent Saybolt Universal Seconds reading @ 100°F.

The Model 2 is best for oils from approximately 40 to 800 SUS.
VISGAGE
 
The Model 4 is best for oils from approximately 400 to 1400 SUS.

Centistoke Models:
Centistokes is a kinematic viscosity standard created by the International Standard Organization. Except for the in the United States the Centistokes standard is nearly universal. Unless there is a specific reason to be using SUS we recommend that everyone uses a Visgage that reads in Centistokes. Our Visgages are calibrated at room temperature but give the equivalent Centistokes reading @ 40°C.

The Model 38 is best for oils from approximately 8 to 160 CST.
VISGAGE
 
The Model 76 is best for oils from approximately 80 to 300 CST.

Quality Control

top
The Visgage can be used to quickly test the viscosity of bulk oil shipments and oil inventory. By drawing a sample and running a quick test expensive mixing mistakes can be avoided.

 

Oil Analysis

top
The Visgage's ease of use makes it a great part of an oil analysis program. By monitoring lubricating oil viscosity your company can be warned when there are changes and make the appropriate decisions.

If you find the viscosity of the oil increasing over time then the oil is being overheated and oxidized, or particle contaminants are being introduced. Either situation causes equipment wear and should be remediated as soon as possible.

If you find your oil viscosity going down quicker than normal then there has probably been a mixup of oils. Fuel oil may be leaking into your reservoir or the wrong viscosity of oil was added to the tank.
