ASTM D-1200 Flow Cup Viscometers
These types of flow cups are available in two options: with or without handle. The cups without handle can be supplied separately or with an adjustable stand that includes a precision level and an overflow glass draw plate. The handle types are fitted dir.
Flow cup viscometers provide kinematic viscosity data. The measured kinematic viscosity is generally expressed in seconds (s) flow time when the fluid is flowing through an orifice at a specified temperature. Thanks to the conversion equations the viscosity is calculated from the flow time to centistokes (cSt). The calibration certificates are supplied with the cups.
According to the standards, there are several viscosity ranges available from 5 cSt. Flow cups made of anodized aluminium body with a stainless steel orifice.
Ensuring the accuracy of the test results, FUNGILAB recommends a periodic calibration check. You can check the viscosity results using the standard oils specially manufactured for these kind of viscometers (available under request), or sending the instrument to our calibration laboratories.
Industries like paint, ink, varnishes and similar products use this very easy to use flow cups to quickly calculate the viscosity.
