This unique viscometer is ideal for ink, paint, food, pharmaceutical, chemical processing, rubber, oil, paper, or any viscometry application that requires high accuracy and fast response time. The new tuning fork vibration method ensures excellent accuracy and repeatability with a wide range of continuous and real time measurement. The thin, small size of the sensor plate allows even minute changes of viscosity and temperature to be tracked on a real-time basis. Additionally, the design of the sensor plates allows minimal deformation of the sample texture, and thus enables measurement of Non-Newtonian fluids.
Viscosity is measured by detecting the driving electric current necessary to resonate the two sensor plates at constant frequency of 30Hz and amplitude of less than 1mm. T
