The Viscomat and the ViscLab software is designed to work with a balance connected to the system.
The standard balance we supply for the Viscomat is a Sartorius ED124S. This is a modern, fast, and robust balance with RS232 serial interface, internal calibration, 0.1 mg resolution and up to 120 g capacity.
A water bath capable of holding 25±0.1°C is required for the Viscomat. The water baths are delivered complete with a thermostat unit and a water bath container.
Our standard thermostat unit is the SC 100 from Thermo Scientific. This thermostat is designed for ease-of-use and energy efficiency. It has powerful pumping and heating capacity for closed loop applications such as in the Viscomat application, and is an economical choice offering solid performance for applications ranging from -28°C to +150°C.
The water bath container is selected based on the the cooling requirements and the number of samples to fit into the bath. The non-refrigerated water baths are shipped with a tap water cooling coil, since the 25°C required by the viscosity method usually is close to the ambient room temperature.
A set of preselected configurations are shown below:
SC100-S15: Temperature range +20°C – 100°C with tap water cooling, complete with external circulation for connection to the Viscomat II and tap water cooling coil. Capacity: 11-20 liters. Material: stainless steel.
Order #: LV0021
SC100-S21P: Temperature range +20°C – 100°C with tap water cooling , complete with external circulation for connection to the Viscomat II and tap water cooling coil. Capacity: 13-21 liters. Material: Polyphenylene Oxide (PPO).
Order #: LV0018
SC100-A10: Temperature range -10°C – +100°C, complete with external circulation for connection to the Viscomat II. Capacity: 5 liters. Material: stainless steel. This is a refrigerated bath which means that it can keep the temperature on 25 without requiring tap water cooling coil.
Order #: LV0017
All water baths can be delivered with a lifting platform for holding the sample bottles in place. Please contact us for more information.
