VCP-1 online capillary viscometer for high-temperature, high-viscosity fluids

VCP-1

The VCP-1 is the online viscometer for high-temperature and high-viscosity fluid. It is for measuring the apparent viscosity of viscous fluids precisely. The viscosity measurement detects the quality of measured fluids and the degree to which reactions have progressed. It is suitable for managing the process of synthetic resin continuous polymerization and endpoint inspections of batch manufacturing processes.

Features

  • The online viscometer for precisely measuring the apparent viscosity of viscous fluids.
    The viscosity measurement determines the quality of measured fluids and the degree to which reactions have progressed.
    It is suitable for managing the process of synthetic resin continuous polymerization and endpoint inspections of batch manufacturing processes.
  • The performance of measurement based on the Hagen-Poiseuille's law. This law makes VCP-1 reliable for measuring the apparent viscosity as the difference in pressure between the entry and exit points when a viscous fluid travels a fixed distance.
  • Available for measuring the apparent viscosity of non-Newtonian fluids.
  • The capillary diameter, the shear speed, and the pressure gauge scale are available to change to measure a range of viscosities widely.
  • Available to be attached directly, to the vacuum tanks and decompression tanks to measure the apparent viscosity of internal fluids continuously.
  • Quick response with almost no retention of measured fluids within the meter.
  • Simple design and structure for easy maintenance.
  • Track records have been over 720 units since 1972.
