Just did not work well

About Me Academic/Professional Researcher
Comments about Gilmont<reg> Fallng Ball Viscometer, 0.2 to 2 / 1 to 10 centipoise:
I tried to measure the viscosity of a light juice and the ball got stuck in the tube and would not fall. The allowable tolerance are to tight for this product,.. They have lab experiments online that are more open than this product. I found this viscometer difficult to use.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Bargain Price for Reliable, Repeatable
from Winston-Salem, NC
Provides an economical way to measure viscosity, a manual process requires accurate time keeping (the rate of ball drop between two measured points). Ambient temperature must be controlled and accurate vertical set up is critical for accurate, repeatable results.Our R&D department has found this to be a fast and easy to use method to measure viscosity of the protein solution development. Because it is manual, I do not consider it to be a precision quanitative or qualitative instrument, but it is a great value for feedback in your process development.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We were not able to complete a single viscosity test with this instrument. I would recommend a Cannon viscometer instead.

About Me Student
The knobs were difficult to use to drop the ball, and when I tried measruing the viscosity of water at room temperature it gave me 2 cp! I followed the instruction exactly, even building a tabletop just to make sure its perpendicular to the ground and that there's no micro-air bubbles or spinning of the ball.

It is more accurate than rotating one. Rotating one is really not good compared to this (Brookfield) I guess I catch easily 0.2 centipose repeatability with this. They say you can do more.
