Koehler Instrument Company

Summary Of Method


Kinematic viscosity is one of the most important properties to be analized on lubricant oils and Biodiesel. In order to measure it, a few mililiters of sample are placed into a tube called Viscometer and then temperature conditioned inside viscosity bath. The time required by sample to pass through a bulb inside viscometer is measured and multiplied by viscometer´s calibration constant to get Kinematic Viscosity in Centistokes (cSt).




  • "Accommodates six round 2"" (51mm) dia. viscometer holders.
  • Test temperatures of up to 150°C (302°F) can be selected.
  • Temperature limit control permits the operator to select an overtemperature cutoff point to protect against accidental overheating.
  • Composition top plate rests on a 12x12"" (30.5x30.5cm) or 12x18"" (30.5x46cm) compatible with former Koehler´s models."
