Portable rotary viscometer according to the Brookfield Method suitable for production process and for laboratories and research centres any time when quick and reliable determination of viscosity are required.

The most outstanding feature of the portable viscometers VP 1000 M is their user-friendliness. Thanks to this characteristic it becomes an ideal tool to carry out measurements in the own premises during the manufacturing process for batch control.

Viscometers from the VP 1000 M series are very light (1,8kg) already assembled and ready to be used. They offer an important autonomy to the end user because they are battery operated. Two lines digital display with backlight. Viscosity reading is shown in screen together with full scale %. Instrument displays maximum measurement range when selecting spindle.

Instrument is supplied with 6 standard spindles (R2 – R3 – R4 – R5 – R6 – R7) and with a tailor-made measuring vessel, featuring a special anchoring system to ease centering of sample container and preventing vessel to be pushed aside by the rotating forces.

The portable viscometer VP 1000 M series is used to measure viscosity in samples from different industrial sectors: chemical, pharmaceutical, food, cosmetic and print among others.
