Omnitek S-flow kinematic viscometer

Automated Houillon viscometer system

The S-flow range of instruments consist of compact, bench-top automatic viscometry systems for the analysis of Newtonian fl uids. It complies fully with in ASTM D7279 and as such, gives full correlation to ASTM D445. It is the ideal system for used oil analysis labs that need to test a wide range of lubricant viscosities.

Product Description

s-flow 3000 omnitekThe S-flow range of instruments consist of compact, bench-top automatic viscometry systems for the analysis of Newtonian fluids. It complies fully with in ASTM D7279 and as such, gives full correlation to ASTM D445. It is the ideal system for used oil analysis labs that need to test a wide range of lubricant viscosities.

“The S-flow system was designed for maximum throughput and ease of use while minimizing sample quantity and solvent consumption. It is the ideal viscometer for quick and accurate results”

Fast & accurate

The  S-flow  system  is  a  self-contained  viscometer  system that consists of a thermostatic bath with circular heater and a  control  column.  The  bath  contains  4  viscometer  tubes together with optical sensors to detect the fl ow of the sample through the tubes. All measuring tubes function independently of each other. The control column has an LCD display that provides the user with information about the system’s status  and  an  array  of  LED’s  indicate  the  current  status of  each  measuring  tube.  Although  a  PC  is  not  required  to operate the instrument, additional software is available for operating and data storage and reporting.

High capacity

The entire cycle time ranges between 3-10 minutes per tube, allowing a throughput of up to 80 tests per hour. After  the  injection  of  the  sample,  operator  presence  is  no longer  required.  The  operator  needs  only  to  return  after the system has completed the measurement and cleaned the tube.
