Miniature Viscometer 501
The SPC 501 is used extensively for compressor, used oil analysis, on-engine and hydraulic fluid applications. It is ideal for installations where form factor and small sample volume are important.
Our viscosity management technology is based on a simple and reliable electromagnetic concept. Two coils move the piston back and forth magnetically at a constant force. Proprietary circuitry analyzes the piston’s two-way travel time to measure absolute viscosity.
A built-in temperature detector (RTD) senses the actual temperature in the sampling chamber. Constant in and out motion keeps samples fresh, mechanically scrubs the sampling area and provides excellent viscosity
Measurements can be made in any of 6 different 20:1 viscosity ranges between 0.5 and 500 centipoise (cP).
Recommended fluid flow over the sensor is up to 30 cm/sec.
