Flow Cups

Flow cups are used by many industries to measure Kinematic Viscosity. They are a low cost and simple means of measuring the viscosity of a wide range of paints, inks, & oils.

All our flow cups are made in the UK by Rhopoint Instruments and fit important standards including:

ISO flow cups BS EN ISO 2431 and BS EN 535 

Ford flow cups  ASTM D1200

AFNOR flow cups NF T30-014

DIN flow cups DIN 53221

BS flow cups BS 3900 (withdrawn standard but these cups are still widely used)

Frikmar dip cup (Ford flow cup with handle) ASTM D1200

Zhan dip cup ASTM D 4212 & ASTM D 1084-D

Benefits of Flow Cups:

  • Quickly and effectively measure product viscosity
  • Manufactured to the requirement of National & International standards
  • Accurate viscosity that can be expressed as efflux time or calculated into a viscosity reading of centistokes (cSt) or millimetre squared per second (mm²/s).
  • Works with a wide range of fluids
  • Low cost

Looking for flow cup calibration?

The calibration service is available onsite or offsite. We are the only company in the UK offering onsite calibration of flow cups this can be particularly cost-effective if you have many flow cups to calibrate. We also supply a full range of viscosity standards if you would like to calibrate your own flow and dip cups.
