AFNOR Viscosity Flow Cups

The Elcometer 2352 AFNOR Viscosity Flow Cups are very easy to use instruments made of anodized aluminium with a stainless steel orifice, for measuring the consistency of paints, varnishes and similar products.

The measured kinematic viscosity is generally expressed in seconds(s) flow time.

Calibration certificates which offer traceability and assurance that each viscosity cup has been individually tested and comply to Standards are also available.

The cups can be supplied separately or with an adjustable stand which includes a precision level and an overflow glass draw plate. They can also be supplied with a flow jacket for temperature control (thermojacket).

Please Note: There is no calculation to convert flow into Centistokes (cSt) using the AFNOR Flow Cup.

How to measure viscosity using Elcometer Flow Cups

A flow cup is a cup of a specified size and volume, with an overflow channel at the top, and a hole of a defined size in the bottom. And they are available in a range of designs in accordance with National and International Standards, with various orifice diameters to suit different viscosities.
