Flow Cup Viscometer : The Process of Flow through a orifice can ofter be used as a relative measurement and classification of viscosity. This measured kinematic viscosity is generally expressed in seconds of flow time which can be converted into Centistokes using a viscosity disc calculator.
(DIN 53211, ASTM D 1200, ASTM D 1084, ASTM D 4212, ISO/DIN 2431, NF T30-014, ASTM D 5125, BS 3900 A6:1971)
Dip Cups: Using the same principle as flow cups, dip cups â€“ Frikmar, Zahn, Shell, etc. â€“ can be used to provide a quick viscosity measurement on the shop floor or on site.
Rotational: Rotational viscometers are used to determine the viscosity of liquids which do not depend solely on temperature and pressure. The behavior of non-Newtonian liquids can be determined using a range of rotational viscometers in particular the cone and plate viscometer range.
