Cone and Plate Viscometer

Model Number: Cone & Plate Viscometer

Dual Speed Operation
Fully automated
Precision Temperature Control
Accurate wear resistant Cone & Plate

The PAINTLAB+ Cone and Plate Viscometer provides high accuracy viscosity measurement of non-newtonian paints and coatings. This Viscometer is specifically designed to provide stringent testing conditions to allow the measurement of these materials as the viscosity changes according to the shear stress that is applied. A precision wear resistant cone rotating at high speed on a temperature controlled plate produces standardised shear rates during measurement. Fully automated operation ensures rapid and accurate positioning of the cone onto the plate each time after the plate temperature has reached its preset value. Results are displayed instantly on screen after test.. Real-time high resolution graphing provides monitoring of changes in viscosity during measurement allowing the identification of changes in flow behaviour.

Features:
Real time high resolution graphing of test samples
Results displayed on screen immediately after test
High stability motor speed control for accuracy and repeatability of measurement
Easy clean design- even in the harshest environment both screen and chassis are easy to clean
Date / time stamped results output to printer
Annual re-calibration can be performed by user
Extended warranty

Viscosity measurement of coatingsis essential at each stage of the manufacturing process to ensure consistent quality standards.
Many parameters can effect the rheological behaviour of a finished coating resulting in undesirable effects such as inconsistent performance, poor levelling orsagging. The use of high precision measuring instruments is therefore essential in quality control to prevent such problems occurring during formulation, manufacture and application.
The Rhopoint PAINTLAB+ Cone & Plate Viscometer provides high accuracy viscosity measurement of non-newtonian paints and coatings. This viscometer is specifically designed to provide stringent testing conditions to allow the measurement of these materials as the viscosity changes according to the shear stress that is applied.

Features
Rhopoint cone and plate viscometer screenPrecise Measurement
High stability motor speed control ensures accuracy and repeatability during each test. Real-time high resolution graphing allows monitoring of changes during measurement providing identification of inconsistencies between samples.
Measurement results displayed instantly on screen after test in P, cP, Pa.s or mPa.s.

Advanced Temperature Monitoring
The viscometer utilises an integrated high stability temperature controlled plate onto which the samples are applied to test.
A preheat function allows rapid stabilisation of sample temperature which is accurately controlled throughout the measurement process.

Easy Clean Design
Lab-tough easy clean glass allows easy removal and cleaning of unintentional splashes and smears from the capacitive sense buttons and screen. The solvent resistant anodised aluminium instrument chassis ensures that the instrument can be cleaned and restored to pristine condition even in the toughest working environments.Cone Plate Viscometer Label
Data Transfer
Measurement data including time, date and test temperature can be printed to a Rhopoint label printer (supplied as an optional accessory).
Printed labels can be attached to each sample for easy identification and recording of results.
