SpectroVisc 310 - Dual-bath Automatic Laboratory Viscometer

SpectroVisc 310 is discontinued


The SpectroVisc 310 is a dual-bath, bench-top semi-automatic kinematic temperature viscometer optimized for the analysis of used and new lubricants. It conforms to the requirements in ASTM D445, D446, D7279, IP 71 and ISO 3104. It is also the ideal system for used oil analysis laboratories that need to test a wide range of lubricant viscosities.

TheSpectroVisc 310 is a self-contained viscometer system that consists of two thermostatic baths with circular heater and a control column. Each bath contains 4 patented viscometer tubes together with optical sensors to detect the flow of oil through the tubes. All measuring tubes and the baths function independently of each other. The SpectroVisc 310 is capable of performing two simultaneous measurements at two temperatures to calculate the viscosity index based on the results of the two individual baths automatically. The control column has an advanced central touch screen display, where all parameters can be easily accessed. An optional external computer can also be used to control the system for applications where more extensive data handling requirements are necessary.

The user of the SpectroVisc 310 has the option to operate in two modes, standard viscosity determinations or measuring tube calibration. In both modes, the user chooses how many determinations have to be made for an average result. The operator also controls additional parameters such as tube constants, and cleaning cycle. The SpectroVisc 310 is so compact that it only has 60% the footprint of two single systems.
