Thermo Scientific HAAKE Falling Ball Viscometer C and Rotational Viscometers


Thermo Scientific HAAKE Falling Ball Viscometer C

The traditional HAAKE Falling Ball Viscometer C, well known as the Höppler viscometer, accurately measures the viscosity of transparent Newtonian liquids and gases. It meets the requirements of the DIN 53015/ISO 12058 standards and is accepted as an official reference instrument. The measurement requires a stopwatch only.  Reduce your cost of ownership while getting the high accuracy you need. 

Product Detail 

Traditional and simple viscometer for very precise measurements of transparent Newtonian fluids  and gases according to ISO12258 and DIN53015 in the temperature range from -20°C to 150°C. It is a proven tool for precise viscosity measurements which requires only a stop watch and no power connection.  

HAAKE Viscotester 1 plus/2 plus rotational viscometer

The Thermo Scientific HAAKE Viscotester 1 plus & 2 plus are quick, exact and reliable rotational viscometers with one button operation which can be operated hand-held or on a stand. A digital display delivers clear results. Battery powered, these units do not require external power. These Viscotester models are delivered in a sturdy carrying case as a complete ready-to-use package with 3 measuring systems.

Thermo Scientific HAAKE Viscotester E,D and C 

The HAAKE Viscotester E,D and C are  classic rotational viscometers according to ISO 2555 (''Brookfield method'') and many ASTM standards.

Thermo Scientific HAAKE Viscotester  550

 The HAAKE Viscotester 550 is a rotational viscometer designed for fast and precise measurement of viscosity and flow behaviour for quality control and has established itself as a state of the art instrument in quality control. 

Product Detail 

The HAAKE Viscotester 550 is a Searle viscometer. A rotational speed is preset and the flow resistance of the sample is measured in other words, the torque maintaining the set speed is proportional to the viscosity. All final information on the viscosity, shear stress and the shear rate is calculated from the torque required, the set speed and the geometry factors of the applied sensor. The results are displayed digitally and can be printed simultaneously.

For viscosity measurements a total of 60 different rotational speed steps are available. 50 out of these 60 are factory set; the remaining 10 are user programmable. The 60 steps cover a wide range reaching from 0.5 rpm to 800 rpm. The resulting torque is measured via a non-contact, low displacement sensor which enables the extended measuring range with perfect signal linearity over the whole range. The operating temperature can be measured by Pt100 probes located either in the sensor used or directly in the test material.
