Dynamic and Kinematic Viscosity Measurement – V-Compact Series

The V-Compact viscometer is part of the FGB V-Series and features a smart and contemporary design. It includes a ground-breaking technology that provides unique and progressive options. The possibility to exchange headboards is one of the most vanguard features of the V-Compact Series. The V-Compact includes different viscometer heads (L, R or H) which can be effortlessly exchanged to cover all viscosity ranges. The unit comes with Push, Plug & Release (PPR) system - spindle coupling for easy lock of the spindle. Further, it includes the built-in HELDAL movement for measuring viscosity of non-flowing substances. An intuitive mobile application controls the V-Compact viscometer.

The V•SERIES product range provides patented technology, unique and innovative options, and a transformative user experience.

Data Displayed

  • Selected Spindle
  • Selected Speed
  • Viscosity readings (cP or mPa•s or cSt)
  • Percentage of Full Scale Range (%)
  • Sample Temperature (Optional, °C or °F)
  • Shear rate (with coaxial spindles) (s-1)
  • Shear Stress (with coaxial spindles) (N/m2)
  • Density (introduced by the user)(g/cm3)

Programs

  • Create and edit multiple programs
  • Store programs for later use
  • Select between Time To Torque (TTT), Time To Stop (TTS), Step and Ramp

Data Storage

  • Results of all performed experiments can be stored in a comprehensive database
  • Users can access the program configuration for each experiment
  • Users can analyze and review the saved data for future testing purposes

Customization

  • A list of customized speeds (0.01 to 250 rpm) can be created
  • Quality Control Limits (QCL) and Out of Range alarms can be activated and deactivated
  • Users can change the axis values on the graphic display
  • Auto- Test: Automatic viscometer calibration with visual and sound malfunction alarm
  • Auto-Range: Shows the maximum viscosity range for the chosen spindle-rpm combination
  • Tablet: All parameters can be accessed on a tablet (included). Free mobile application is available through the Google Play Store
  • Languages: Multiple language selections are available
  • QCL: The quality control limits can be selected for sample analysis

* The minimum measurement when using model "L" standard spindle is 10 cP. For measurements below 10 cP, we recommend to use the low viscosity adapter (LCP or LCP/B)

Standard Delivery

Instruments are supplied with an 8-inch tablet pre-installed with the Fungilab APP.

Also includes: viscometer head (L or R or H), standard spindles (4 spindles for L model and 6 spindles for R or H models), spindles rack, spindle protector, motorized base, power supply cable, temperature probe, operating manual, calibration certificate, and carrying case.

Viscometer head: Extra viscometer heads can be ordered with corresponding spindles; carrying case and protector; or with the carrying case alone.
