The brand has been considered the world standard in viscosity measurement and control of liquids and semi-solids for more than 80 years.
Viscosity behaviour allows manufacturers to understand and gather precious information about their product: predicting its pourability, its performance in a dipping or coating operation, or the ease with which it may be handled, processed, or used. The interrelation between rheology and other product dimensions often makes the measurement of viscosity the most sensitive or convenient way of detecting changes in colour, density, stability, solids content, and molecular weight.
Controlled Shear Rate (CSR) - selecting a speed
Controlled Shear Stress (CSS) - selecting a force/area
Relative Measuring Systems - Standard - Spindles, Vane-Spindles, Helipath-System
Absolute Measuring Systems - Coaxial Cylinder, Cone/Plate, Plate/Plate, Spiral-Adapter
Viscosity Range: approx. 0.5 to 1,000,000,000 mPa.s
Temperature Range: to 300°C
Shear Rate: 0.01 to 13,333 1/s
Viscometers are a crucial part of research, development, and process control programs. Especially in some industries, like pharmaceuticals or cosmetics, where being able to have full traceability of your processes is so important.
The Ametek Brookfield Touch Screen Viscometers and Rheometers (example: DV2T, DV3T and RST) are 21 CFR Part 11 Compliant. Also, having a 21 CFR Part 11 Compliant Viscometer and Software package can make your life much easier.

Here at Lab Unlimited we are the only company in Ireland who can calibrate your Brookfield viscometer to manufacturer specifications, providing the most accurate and fully traceable calibration.
Preventative Maintenance and Calibration is not simply cleaning down an instrument followed by a check with a Calibration Standard. We verify the instrument 'As found' and then routinely change instrument wearing parts in the course of the PM / repair. The uniqueness in our service is that the Instrument is adjusted into tolerance and 'Tuned' to a Brookfield Certified Master Viscometer.
