When there is a simulation system of components or a process line that is critical to operations, it is essential to know that the viscosity parameters are correct or controlled always.
The VISCOpro 2000 viscometer offers menu-driven electronics to complement and control Cambridge Viscosity’s high-quality in-line and in-tank sensors. It is powerful yet features ease of use and offers temperature, viscosity, temperature-compensated viscosity, and optional density readings on an enhanced visual display panel.
For higher accuracy, thirteen factory-set standard measurement ranges from 0.2-20,000 cP is available. Selecting control set points, alarms and operating characteristics is easy using a menu-driven interface with RS232(standard) and RS485(optional) communications ports.
An inbuilt 1000 point logger captures essential data in real time that can be exported easily to common graphing programs for analysis. The VISCOpro 2000 can be programmed easily for up to 40 different fluid settings, enabling rapid changeovers in production processes with consistent results.
The key features of the VISCOpro 2000 are:
- The VISCOpro 2000 will also switch to cleanout mode whenever necessary.
- The system is factory-set yet configurable.
- Its microprocessor “learns” how much control is needed for each fluid setting, and automatically adjusts to the ideal level, maximizing accuracy and allowing for minimal operator intervention.
- The VISCOpro 2000 does more than measure viscosity, it transmits analog signals for temperature and temperature-compensated viscosity (TCV); optional density measurement is available.
- VISCOpro 2000 eliminates the effects of variations in process temperature and increases viscosity-control efficiency.
- The data can easily be exported to spreadsheet programs for further analysis and customized reports. The VISCOpro 2000 features a supervisory lock-out function to prohibit unauthorized viewing of line status or changing of settings.
- When levels reach user-configured thresholds, alarms are triggered to alert operators so they can quickly take appropriate action.
