Being able to test viscosity oil on board is of great value. Both for spot testing bunker oil such as HFO and lubrication oil, but also continuous measurements in fuel line systems greatly improves the ability to operate a vessel optimally. The viscosity will greatly impact the fuels efficiency and ensuring that the oil is heated correctly to obtain the optimal viscosity, will help in engine operation optimization. Periodic measurements of the viscosity help avoid critical deterioration of the lubricating ability of the lube oil. Whether you are measuring dynamic viscosity (mPa∙S and cP) or kinematic viscosity (cm2/s and cSt), we have an instrument that can help you.

Parker Kittiwake Heated Viscometer

Heasted Viscometer. Testing fuel and oil viscosity is very necassary to identify the grade of fuel delivered. The heated viscometer can be used to test lube oil and residual fuels in all applications including diesel engines, gas and aeroplane turbines, gear boxes, hydraulics and marine fuels.
