The VP 1000 R viscometer of the MYR Group is a portable viscometer for quick and flexible viscosity measurements in a wide range of products.
The VP 1000 R is not a hand held viscometer. But in fact, the extreme light weight of the instrument (1,8 kg) allows to carry it wherever the user needs. The instrument is ready to use; just unpack, set up and press a button!
Viscometer VP 1000 R is battery operated and work at a fixed speed (62,5 rpm). Viscosity readings are delivered in two different units: milli-Pascal-seconds (mPas) and deci-Pascal-seconds (dPas).
Measuring principle is based on a rotor immersed in the fluid to be tested and rotating at a constant speed; fluid’s resistance to the rotation is measured to obtain direct readings of viscosity in mPas and dPas.
The most outstanding feature of the portable viscometers VP 1000 R is their user-friendliness. Thanks this characteristic becomes an ideal tool to carry out measurements in the own premises during the manufacturing process for batch control, in laboratories or in research centres whenever quick and reliable viscosity readings are needed.
