RheoSense, Inc introduces the microVISC-m viscometer designed to simplify daily or routine measurements of lubricating oils’ viscosity. For oil condition monitoring, the microVlSC-m is a simple, portable tool that requires only a few drops of oil, according to the company.
RheoSense says its microVlSC-m measures oil viscosity through an easy, one-minute test, eliminating the wait for test results from remote labs. The instrument requires a sample volume as small as 100 microliters.
The viscometer displays dynamic viscosity at ambient conditions. It also extrapolates kinematic viscosities at 40, 80 and 100 °C, following industry-standard ASTM D341 formulas.
