Viscometer instrument from Parker

Heated Viscometer

Testing fuel and oil viscosity is very necessary to identify the grade of fuel is delivered.

The Heated Viscometer is convenient for viscosity tests for lub oil and residual fuel in all applications including diesel engines, gas and aeroplane turbines, gear boxes, hydraulics and marine fuels.

When to use the Viscometer?

The heated viscometer is a portable instrument, which is designed specifically for On-Site use. The instrument is suitable for testing and monitoring the viscosity of fuel and oil unheated to 40°C and lubes and fuels heated to 40 °C or 50 °C, as well as for many industrial applications such as:

  • Diesel engines
  • Gas and aviation turbines
  • Gear boxes
  • Hydraulics and marine fuels. 

Moreover, the portable viscometer gives you the ability to test on-side, at the point of use, which enables you, the engineers, and the facilities managers to conduct oil analysis quickly and easily.

How does the Viscometer work?

The heated viscometer is measuring a specific temperature point.

Moreover, the instrument is designed to ‘Tilt’ from side to side in both directions, which makes the ball fall under gravity. This makes it possible to calculated the viscosity of the oil automatically.
