A viscometer is an instrument used to measure the viscosity of a fluid.The Brookfield Viscometer measures fluid viscosity at given shear rates.
Viscosity is a measure of a fluid’s resistance to flow .We have two viscometer LV and HB used to measure low and high viscosity fluids.
The DV-II+ Pro EXTRA offers exceptional versatility in modes of control allowing for traditional standalone operation, automatic operation through programs downloaded from the PC or with complete control by PC using Brookfield Rheocalc Software.ion. The principle of operation of DV-II+pro is to drive the spindle which is immersed in the test fluid through a calibrated spring.The viscous drag of the fluid against the spindle is measured by the spring deflection. Spring deflection is measured with a rotary transducer.The measurement range of DV-II pro is determined by the rotational speed of spindle, the size and shape of the spindle,the container the spindle is rotating in,and the full scale torque of the calibrated spring.

The WaveNow Potentiostat/Galvanostat System breaks with the past replacing traditionally large and stationary benchtop instruments with lightweight, portable, and powerful alternatives. Weighing less than 200 grams, the WaveNow series potentiostat systems features a convenient USB interface, a fully-functional potentiostat and galvanostat, and our powerful AfterMath instrument control and data analysis software. Key features of the WaveNow are as follows:

  • Applied/Measured Current: ±100 nA to ±100 mA
  • Applied/Measured Voltage: ±4 V
  • Operation Modes: Potentiostat, Galvanostat, OCP, ZRA
  • Techniques: All common DC sweep and step experiments plus specialty corrosion, rotating, and spectroelectrochemistry techniques
