The PDVdi-120 is a simple to use, accurate, low-cost, compact, and lightweight field viscometer that can be taken anywhere to measure the viscosity of Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids.
The PDVdi-120 consists of a viscometer main body with a reusable syringe (tube) and a falling needle attached to an extension bar with two markings. The viscosity of the sample is determined by measuring the falling time of a needle through a predetermined distance (between two markings on the extension bar attached to the needle) within the fluids held in the reusable syringe. The falling time can be measured manually by a stopwatch. The viscometer includes viscometer main body with two reusable syringes, falling needle, stopwatch, digital thermometer, an instruction manual and carrying case.
Features include: field viscosity test, no instrument calibration, multiple measurements with single sample, easy cleaning and maintenance (reusable syringe and large needle), and conforms to SAE AIR 5704 and ASTM D 5478.
