Blog posts : "Elcometer: Viscosity Cups"

ISO Viscosity Flow Cups

The Elcometer 2353 ISO Viscosity Flow Cups are very easy to use instruments made of anodized aluminium with a stainless steel orifice, for measuring the consistency of paints, varnishes and similar products.

The measured kinematic viscosity is generally expressed in seconds(s) flow time. If the Standards stipulate conversion methods the flow time can be converted into Centistokes (cSt) using the Elcometer ElcoCalc™ Mobile Apps.

Calibration certificates which offer traceability and assurance that each viscosity cup has been individually tested and comply to Standards are also available.

The cups can be supplied separately or with an adjustable stand which includes a precision level and an overflow glass draw plate. They can also be supplied with a flow jacket for temperature control (thermojacket).

BS Viscosity Flow Cups

The Elcometer 2354 BS Viscosity Flow Cups are very easy to use instruments made of anodized aluminium with a stainless steel orifice, for measuring the consistency of paints, varnishes and similar products.

The measured kinematic viscosity is generally expressed in seconds(s) flow time. If the Standards stipulate conversion methods the flow time can be converted into Centistokes (cSt) using the Elcometer ElcoCalc™ Mobile Apps.

Calibration certificates which offer traceability and assurance that each viscosity cup has been individually tested and comply to Standards are also available.

The cups can be supplied separately or with an adjustable stand which includes a precision level and an overflow glass draw plate. They can also be supplied with a flow jacket for temperature control (thermojacket).

FORD/ASTM Viscosity Flow Cups

The Elcometer 2351 FORD/ASTM Viscosity Flow Cups are very easy to use instruments made of anodized aluminium with a stainless steel orifice, for measuring the consistency of paints, varnishes and similar products.

The measured kinematic viscosity is generally expressed in seconds(s) flow time. If the Standards stipulate conversion methods the flow time can be converted into Centistokes (cSt) using the Elcometer ElcoCalc™ Mobile Apps.

Calibration certificates which offer traceability and assurance that each viscosity cup has been individually tested and comply to Standards are also available.

The cups can be supplied separately or with an adjustable stand which includes a precision level and an overflow glass draw plate. They can also be supplied with a flow jacket for temperature control (thermojacket).

DIN Viscosity Flow Cups

The Elcometer 2350 DIN Viscosity Flow Cups Viscosity Flow Cups are very easy to use instruments made of anodized aluminium with a stainless steel orifice, for measuring the consistency of paints, varnishes and similar products.

The measured kinematic viscosity is generally expressed in seconds(s) flow time. If the Standards stipulate conversion methods the flow time can be converted into Centistokes (cSt) using the Elcometer ElcoCalc™ Mobile Apps.

AFNOR Viscosity Flow Cups

The Elcometer 2352 AFNOR Viscosity Flow Cups are very easy to use instruments made of anodized aluminium with a stainless steel orifice, for measuring the consistency of paints, varnishes and similar products.

The measured kinematic viscosity is generally expressed in seconds(s) flow time.

Calibration certificates which offer traceability and assurance that each viscosity cup has been individually tested and comply to Standards are also available.

The cups can be supplied separately or with an adjustable stand which includes a precision level and an overflow glass draw plate. They can also be supplied with a flow jacket for temperature control (thermojacket).

Elcometer 2210 Zahn Viscosity Dip Cups

The Elcometer 2210 Zahn Dip Cup is a small U-shaped viscosity cup suspended from a looped wire.

This method is ideal for measuring the consistency of paints, varnishes and similar products.

Simply dip the cup into the product to be measured, lift it out and measure how long it takes for the contents to empty through the orifice.

There are five cups with five different orifice sizes available, ranging from 5 to 1840cSt.

Elcometer 2215 Lory Viscosity Cup

The Elcometer 2215 Lory Viscosity Cup is a conventional cylindrical cup with a needle fixed into the bottom for quick measurements on-site or during production.

The cup is first dipped into the product to be measured, then empties through the escape hole.  Unlike other Viscosity cups, the flow time is measured as soon as the point of the needle appears.

Elcometer 2310 Shell Viscosity Dip Cups

The Elcometer 2310 Shell Viscosity Dip Cups are stainless steel cups for quick measurements on-site or during production.

These viscosity dip cups are often used in the printing or ink industry. 

Simply dip the cup into the product to be measured, lift it out and measure how long it takes for the contents to empty through the orifice.

The measured kinematic viscosity is generally expressed in seconds (s) flow time, which can be converted into Centistokes (cSt).

Elcometer viscosity dip cups are available in six different orifice sizes for measurements between 2 and 1300cSt.

Elcometer Frikmar Viscosity Dip Cups

Thanks to its handle, the Elcometer Frikmar Viscosity Dip Cup is very easy to use to perform viscosity checks on site or during the manufacturing process.

It is ideal for measuring the consistency of paints, varnishes and other similar products.

Simply dip the cup into the product to be measured, lift it out and measure how long it takes for the contents to empty through the orifice.

The measured kinematic viscosity is generally expressed in seconds (s) flow time, which can be converted to Centistokes (cSt) if the Standard stipulates a conversion method.

Several ranges are available, according to the Standards being used; from 7 to 1100cSt.

Elcometer 2410 Viscosity Cup Standard Calibration Oils

In order to check the viscosity cup’s calibration or to certify it for ISO purposes, it is imperative that viscosity cup standard calibration oils are used.

Standard oils have a specific drain time, dependent upon the viscosity cup type (Ford, Shell, Zahn etc.) and the orifice or cup number used.

To check the viscosity cup, use the standard viscosity oils in place of the liquid and measure the drain time.

Specific calibration oils can only be used with specific flow and dip cups. Please use the table below to determine which calibration oil is required with each cup, or contact Elcometer. Viscosity oils are supplied in ½ litre (1 pint) bottles.

Elcometer Rotational Viscosity Standard Calibration Oils

Silicone standard oils are used to check viscosity measurements.

The values are given for 6 different temperatures between 20°C and 27°C (68°F and 80°F).

These oils are specifically manufactured for use with Elcometer 2300 Rotational Viscometers and values quoted are nominal at 25°C (77°F).
