The KV-6 Viscometer Bath is a temperature-controlled bath that maintains the temperature of viscometer tubes, which are used to measure
the viscosity of liquid petroleum products.
The instrument consists of an oil-filled temperature-controlled bath. The bath holds up to six standard viscometer tubes, which can be
viewed through the glass panel at the front of the instrument. Each aperture has a cover to minimise heat loss when not in use. LEDs
illuminate the bath so that you can view the viscometer tubes more easily.
- Accommodates up to 6 viscometer tubes
- Temperature range ambient to 150°C
- Temperature stability ±0.01°C up to and including 100°C, ±0.03°C above 100°C
- Digital temperature control with Thermostir Plus
- Oil, silicone fluid or water filled depending on temperature of use
- Double wall glass front panel ensures optimum insulation and reduce heat loss
- Integral safety features
- Clear and precise reading of viscometer tubes
An uninterrupted view of viscometer tubes is provided by an oversize double glazed front panel with the outer panel made from toughened safety glass to BS 3463. The outer panel is removable for easy cleaning.
A removeable and recessed 6 place top plate has 62 mm apertures and covers with provision for two thermometer holders. The recessed design allows viscometer tubes to sit low in the bath and provides you with a much improved vision of the upper timing marks on the viscometer tubes.
The instrument can hold seven viscometer tubes when used with the optional viscometer tube plate 84202-0 and 51 mm viscometer tube holders. A digitally controlled thermostir unit heats and stirs the bath, maintaining the temperature between 37 and 150 °C. A baffle helps ensure that the temperature is uniform throughout the bath.
When performing tests in higher ambient temperatures, you can connect an external cooling supply to the instrument’s internal cooling coil. The coolant circulates through the internal cooling coil, providing a temperature differential and allowing the thermostir to control the bath temperature more efficiently. The 99300-4 Mini Low Temperature Bath/Circulator can supply chilled water to the KV-6 Viscometer Bath for use at high ambient temperatures.
The large 50 litre capacity ensures minimum temperature recovery time after loading of bath, improving sample throughput.
