RM 100 viscometers work by analysing the unit motor’s absorbed power compensation to maintain a constant speed, providing an immediate reading and output on the device’s display screen.
The springless design of the RM 100 allows it to deliver greater reliability and accuracy than spring-based viscosity measurement devices — particularly when dealing with thixotropic samples — and can also mean reduced maintenance and calibration costs.
The RM 100 offers a measurement range of 1 to 510,000,000 mPa.s and, unlike most similar products, doesn’t tie viscosity measurement to the lab.
Variants include a portable model which offers up to 1 hour’s continuous on-site operation, and an industrial model which boasts a continuous output of 4 to 20 mA.
Also available from Meritics is the ‘Black One’ — another springless viscosity meter that has seen use in a variety of applications including the food, construction, chemical and pharmaceutical industries.
