The temperature can affect the viscosity

It is possible to measure viscosity with a temperature-controlled bath to determine the relationship between different temperatures and corresponding viscosity values. For some applications, the effect of temperature on the viscosity of a solution can be directly critical.


It is possible to vary the temperature in the bath between 10 oC and 150 oC by using different media. The viscosity meter provides a very reliable relationship between temperature and viscosity. Examples of customer assignments can be that we measure the viscosity of different batter components, which gives the customer an idea of ​​the viscosity of the finished coating batter.

The viscosity of homogeneous solutions can be determined, but not fiber suspensions because they are not homogeneous solutions.
