 small sample adaptor   

Small Sample Adaptor


The small sample adaptor consists of a cylindrical sample chamber which can be used in conjunction with spindles TL & TR to accurately obtain viscosity measurements, shear rate and shear stress of sample volumes between 8 - 13ml (0.27 - 0.44fl.oz). 

The TL spindles are for low to medium viscosity samples and TR spindles are for use with medium to high viscosity samples.

Low Viscosity Adaptor

Low Viscosity Adaptor


The low viscosity adaptor consists of a cylindrical sample chamber and is supplied complete with spindle.  Used to accurately obtain viscosity measurements, shear rate and shear stress of low viscosity materials from 1cP (mPa), the stainless steel chamber can hold a sample volume from 16 - 18ml (0.54 - 0.61fl.oz). 
Running temperature controlled water through the water jacket supplied keeps the sample at a constant specified temperature of between 0°C and 100°C (32°F and 212°F).

High Temperature Adaptor

High Temperature Adaptor

 

Ideal for use with materials such as hot resins, bitumens and oils, the high temperature adaptor allows precise measurement of viscosity at high temperatures. It can accurately obtain viscosity measurements, shear rate and shear stress from 1-2100cP (mPa)ǂ up to temperatures of 200°C (392°F).

The stainless steel chamber can hold a sample volume from 16 - 18ml (0.54 - 0.61fl.oz). Each adaptor is supplied complete with a spindle.

Helical Movement Adaptor   

Helical Movement Adaptor


Some materials, such as creams, pastes and gels, do not flow easily, so standard spindles and testing methods cannot be used as they create a ‘hole’ in the material, generating invalid results. The helical movement adaptor moves smoothly up and down, automatically  staying within pre-programmed limits, allowing the needle style spindle to cut into the material without making a ‘hole’ and making the measurement of viscosity possible.

The kit is supplied with the motor and 6 T-shaped spindles: PA, PB, PC, PD, PE, PF.

Rotational Calbration Oils

Standard Calibration Oils


Silicone standard oils are used to check viscosity measurements. The values are given for 6 different temperatures between 20°C and 27°C (68°F and 80°F).

These oils are specifically manufactured for use with Elcometer 2300 Rotational Viscometers and values quoted are nominal at 25°C (77°F).
