Viscoball

The Viscoball measures accurately the viscosity of transparent Newtonian liquids and gases (with a special glass ball).
Features

New
Changeable angle

Fixed angle
Complies with
DIN 53015 / ISO 12058

Kit of 6 balls
Wide viscosity range covered

Simple thermostatic
Measuring with easy conection to our thermovisc series

Viscosity readings
Dinamic (cP or mPa·s)
Kinematic (cSt)

Reproducibility: 0.5%
Comparability: 1%

Viscosity range
0.5 - 10^5 mPa·s (cP)
0.5 - 105 mPa·s (cP)

- High accuracy through improved visibility of falling ball.
- Minimized test time due to accurate return run of the ball.
- Reduced cost of ownership through increased life time of falling tube.
- Extended re-calibration periods through improved bearing support.

The VISCO BALL viscometer is mainly used for low viscosity substances such as used in:
- Mineral oil industry (oils, liquid hydrocarbons).
- Food industry (sugar solution, honey, beer, milk, gelatine, fruit juice).
- Chemical industry (polymer solutions, solvents, resin solutions, latex dispersions, adhesive solutions).
- Cosmetic/Pharmaceutical industry (raw materials, glycerine, emulsions, suspensions, solutions, extracts).
- Petroleum industry (light crude, machine oil, crude petroleum).
- Fuels (petrol, diesel oil, paraffin).
- Paper industry (emulsions, pigment dispersion, paper additives).
- Paints and varnishes (printing inks, varnishes, water lacquers, inks).
- Detergents (liquid washing agents, washing-up liquids, tenside solu- tions).

Measuring principle
The rolling and sliding movements of a ball through the sample liquid are timed in an inclined cylindrical measuring tube. The sample viscosity is correlated to the time a ball requires to traverse a definite distance. By turning the measuring tube upside down again the return of the ball may also be used for an additional measurement applying the return cons- tant. The test results are given as dynamic viscosity in the internationally standardized, absolute units of mPa·s.

Materials
Balls 1,2 and G, Borosilicate glass
Balls 3 and 4, Nickel iron alloy
Balls 5 and 6, stainless steel

The instrument is supplied with 6 balls, control thermometer (-1 to +26ºC) cleaning tools, calibration sheet and instruction manual.

On request:
Glass thermometer for different temperature ranges
V91002 Glass thermometer +24 to +51 ºC, div. 0.1 ºC
V91003 Glass thermometer +49 to +76 ºC, div. 0.1 ºC
V91004 Glass thermometer +74 to +101 ºC, div. 0.1 ºC
V91005 Glass thermometer +99 to +126 ºC, div. 0.1 ºC
V91107 Ball G for gas measurements
Standard oils of differents viscosities are avaible for calibration.

Datalogger software for Evo
Software that offers you the possibility to work with the data gathered by the unit in your viscometer screen in an Excel® file format. Easy to use and to manage your viscosity measurements in just one touch. You can also download the data to the computer using our datalogger software.

FDB Software for Evo Premium:
The FDB software developed by Fungilab has been designed to work with the Evo Premium series. It offers the the possibility to program the viscometer for step, ramp and multi-step curves, and it is an important tool to study the viscosity behaviour of different liquids.

Control software:
Establishing viscosity programs, documenting the procedure and the results in real time are some of the options offered by the Fungilab Data Boss software developed by FUNGILAB. The software has been designed to be very intuitive. The option menu provides a clear view of the program. The help menu provides charts and descriptive texts that offer a clear explanation of the working options.
