Krebs Viscometer

Krebs Viscometer

Manufactured by Rhopoint Instruments

Ensuring consistent quality standards at each stage of the manufacturing process is easy with the Krebs Viscometer

Many parameters can affect the rheological behaviour of a finished coating resulting in undesirable affects such as sagging, levelling, brushability and atomisation. The use of high precision measuring instruments is therefore essential in quality control to prevent such problems occurring during formulation, manufacture and application.

The PAINTLAB+ Krebs Viscometer from Rhopoint Instruments offers high accuracy viscosity measurement with advanced functionality.

Krebs Viscometer Features:

  • Real time high resolution graphing of test samples
  • Results displayed on screen immediately after test in KU, g and cP
  • High stability motor speed control for accuracy and repeatability of measurement
  • Integrated temperature probe to check and record sample temperature prior to testing
  • Automatic lowering of paddle to test height for selected container
  • Quick release magnetic paddle for easy removal and cleaning
  • 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
