The Saybolt Viscometer Bath determines viscosity of petroleum liquids at temperatures from ambient to 464°F (240°C). PID control maintains ±0.05°F (±0.03°C) temperature uniformity throughout operating range and provides quick temperature stabilization with protection of an over-temperature control. Set-point temperatures are displayed in °F/°C. Circulate tap water or refrigerated coolant through the built-in cooling coil for operation at near-ambient temperatures.
The enameled steel cabinet has specimen-area backlighting, leveling feet and sliding draft shields. Insulated stainless steel bath with 3gal (11.4L) capacity has overflow pipe and drain valve to simplify filling to required level. Flasks for the 60ml samples are easily centered on the removable, chemical-resistant alignment plate. The unit comes with four thermometer supports, four chained corks, withdrawal tube, tube nut and orifice wrenches, two port closures and four port covers, and oil strainer.
