The OmniTek U-VIsc combines several unique features, making it the instrument of choice in many applications, ranging from QC to R&D to used-oil analysis. While offering full compliance with ASTM D445/446, the specially designed viscometer tubes cover a 100-fold range, e.g. from 1 to 100mm2/s.
The U-VIsc viscometry system provides users with very high throughput, unattended operation and delivers the ultimate in kinematic viscosity testing.
Versatile and reliable
The tubes are based on the well-known and proven Ubbelohde design, but only require 8-12ml of sample and approximately 10-15ml of solvent for each cleaning cycle. Available with single or dual solvent cleaning, the instrument measures kinematic viscosity in lubricants between 0.5 and 10 000mm2/s.
Designed to be versatile and flexible, yet easy to use
Different models are available ranging from one bath with one or two tubes, up to two baths with one or two tubes per bath. Sophisticated temperature control ensures that measurements are carried out according to D445 requirements. Each bath features a sampling tray with 16 samples per tube, allowing completely unattended operation. Depending on the viscosity of the sample, the instrument can process up to 10 samples per tube per hour, leading to a maximum capacity of up to 40 samples per hour, satisfying even the needs of high volume labs running several hundred samples per day.
The U-VIsc viscometry system was designed with full ASTM D445 compliance in mind, combined with low solvent consumption, high unattended throughput, ease of use and reliability.
The U-VIsc requires a PC for operation but can also be controlled as a stand-alone unit through the responsive colour touch screen interface. For data collection, storage, calculations and reporting, an advanced PC software application is provided with the instrument, which can gather data from up to four instruments simultaneously.
If the baths are run at 40 and 100ºC, the instrument will automatically calculate the sample’s Viscosity Index, based on the results from both baths.
