Paul N. Gardner Co. Inc. has introduced a new device for viscosity measurement of coatings. The ConePlate viscometer is specifically designed to provide stringent testing conditions to allow the measurement of coating materials as the viscosity changes according to the shear stress that is applied. A high stability motor speed control ensures accuracy and repeatability during each test. Real-time high resolution graphing allows monitoring of changes during measurement providing identification of inconsistencies between samples. The unit uses an integrated high stability temperature controlled plate onto which the samples are applied to test. A preheat function allows rapid stabilization of sample temperature which is accurately controlled throughout the measurement process. Other features include teal time high resolution graphing of test samples; display of results on screen immediately after the test, and an easy clean design. Date / time stamped results output to a printer, and annual re-calibration can be performed by the user. An extended warranty is available.
