Viscosity is a measure of the resistance of a fluid which is being deformed by either shear stress or tensile stress. In everyday terms (and for fluids only), viscosity is “thickness” or “internal friction”. Thus, water is “thin”, having a low viscosity, while honey is “thick”, having a higher viscosity. Put simply, the less viscous the fluid is, the greater its ease of movement (fluidity).
ATAC offers the most versatile range available. ATAC is the only manufacturer to offer a process viscometer to measure very high viscosity fluids including those that behave in both a Newtonian (model 1077) and non Newtonian way (models 491 and 421).
Key Features Model 1077
Key Features Model 491
The Hallikainen Model 421 Viscometer is a completely automated process stream analyser which can be suited to offer a number of ranges.
The wide bore capillaries designed to suit highly viscous non Newtonian applications complement the 491 and 1077 models to meet all your viscosity measurement needs.
