PSL Rheotek specialises in the automated kinematic viscosity measurement of a wide range of petroleum liquids as well as synthetic fuels and oils.

The RUV-2 range of compact viscometer analyzers are suitable for determining kinematic viscosity using gravity flow in a suspended level type viscometer (Ubbelohde), fully complying with ASTM D445-IP71, ISO 3104. The RUV-2 range includes a standard analyzer with built in cooling, two solvent cleaning system and integrated processor. Configuration options include a low temperature “sub-zero” analyzer as well as a multi temperature combination.

  • Two solvent cleaning system
  • Traceability of each step of the test method
  • Integrated processor
  • Recording of all flow times, min, max and av temperature during test, kinematic viscosity results and precision
  • Dual bath option
  • Sub-zero temperature bath option
