The measurement of highly viscous samples such as creams, pastes, paints and gelatin is a particular challenge for static viscometers. These substances are so viscous that they are forced to the edge by the rotational movement. An air channel is created around the rotating body, which is why the acting torque is then no longer meaningful.
The new motorized HELISTAND allows you to smoothly measure the viscosity of highly viscous samples, too. It moves the mounted viscometer and its rotating body slowly and uniformly up and down in the sample. Combined with the included T-spindles for non-flowing samples, you can thus acquire meaningful viscosity measurements.
Handling, installing and cleaning the HELISTAND is very easy. The ROTAVISC viscometer is simply placed onto the stand’s drive motor and the T-shaped needle spindle is attached to the viscometer.
