Measuring Viscosity Of Pastes

Source: AMETEK Brookfield

Rotational viscometers have been used for many years for measuring fluid viscosity. Standard disk spindles are the most commonly used spindle geometry and require large, 600-mL sample containers. Other measurement geometries, such as coaxial cylinder or cone-and-plate geometry, provide options for measuring viscosity with limited sample volumes. Nevertheless, there are samples that present problems even with these techniques. Submitted by Brookfield Engineering
