miniPV®/miniPV-X | Automated Dilute Solution/Kinematic Viscometer

The CANNON® miniPV and miniPV-X are automated, benchtop viscometers for the unattended processing and testing of up to 10 samples in organic solvents and aqueous solutions for dilute solution viscosity (DSV) of polymers and kinematic viscosity (KV) for general purpose applications.

Features and Benefits

Designed For Your Testing Needs

  • A trusted CANNON viscometer platform offers reliability and dependable support
  • Viscosity range for DSV from 0.3 to 700 mm2/s (cSt)
  • Viscosity range for KV from 0.02 to 1,200 mm2/s (cSt)
  • Excellent temperature control (±0.01°C) from 15 to 100 °C with integrated Thermoelectric cooling
  • On-board software determines dynamic (with optional density meter), inherent, intrinsic, reduced, and specific viscosity, plus molecular weight

Fully Automated

  • Unattended operation up to 10 samples
  • Lowers operator-to-operator variation
  • Automated washing and drying replaces manual tube cleaning
  • Software controls the instrument and simplifies calibration, data entry, method selection, calculation selection, report formatting, and data exporting
  • Employing VISCPRO® software, one PC can manage up to four instruments

Sealed System

  • Eliminates sample evaporation
  • Reduces operator exposure to harmful chemicals
  • Allows for measurement of atmospherically sensitive and volatile samples

Robust Design

  • Results unaffected by fillers
  • 10x less sensitive to moisture content
  • Compatible with most aggressive aqueous, aqueous, caustic, halogenated, organic, and salt solutions
  • Conserve bench space with compact design

Accurate Measurements

  • 25x greater viscosity accuracy
  • 4x more accurate molecular weight determinations

Highly Sensitive

  • Reliably measures viscosities less than water

Simplified Maintenance & Test Versatility

  • Operators able to replace tubes in minutes
  • Modular bath allows for easy maintenance access
  • Single-point temperature calibration eliminates tube recalibration and maximizes test versatility
  • Standard dual solvent input

Meets testing methods for ASTM D445, ASTM D1243, ASTM D1795, ASTM D2857, ASTM D3591, ASTM D4243, ASTM D5226, ISO 1628-1, ISO 1628-2, ISO 1628-4, ISO 1628-6, ISO 3104, ISO 5351, DIN 51562-1, IEC 60450, Ph. Eur. 1472, Tappi T230, USP 911.
