Measuring Viscosity in Chemical Processing Applications

CVI's viscometers help to assess fluid condition in a wide range of chemical processes

  • Monitors and controls viscosity in a wide range of operating conditions

  • Measures viscosity in slurry accurately and reliably—with very low maintenance, due to self-cleaning sensor technology

  • Analyzes fluid condition in chemical processes to confirm the correct components were incorporated into a particular reaction

  • Precisely measures fluid viscosity using a very small sample

Supporting Consistency Targets Through Accurate Viscosity Measurement in Chemical Processing Plants

Improving process yields requires increasing the throughput of an on-spec product. Consistency targets must be achieved despite changes in raw materials, blending practices, reaction characteristics, and other process conditions with fluids ranging from Newtonian to non-Newtonian. This presents significant challenges to lab, pilot, and full-production environments.


Viscosity is an excellent measure of fluid condition in many processes. It is a clear measure that the correct components have been incorporated into a reaction and that the process is proceeding as expected. Of course, the data must be accurate and repeatable at a particular point in the process, regardless of the operator or other characteristics of the measurement.


Cambridge Viscosity helps chemical manufacturers monitor and control viscosity in a wide range of operating conditions. Our systems are accurate and reliable, incorporating patented self-cleaning sensors and intuitive software to ensure clear, operator-independent data on product and process quality. Sensors are made in a variety of configurations to easily fit into customer operations to produce statistically verifiable results in processes, quality labs, and research laboratories. Our in-line, in-tank, and in-lab systems are designed for full scalability and linkage to research, formulation, pilot and process needs.
