BYK-Gardner GmbH’s (Geretsried, Germany) new Byko-Visc RT Rotational Viscometer enables precise measurement results with each test condition recorded for detailed results analysis and review, and the instrument is said to be ISO 17025 calibration certificated.
The Byko-Visc RT reportedly offers an intuitive navigation, a multitude of control options and a large capacitive color touch-screen display, which includes preset buttons to quickly recall often used measuring parameters. These benefits are designed to reduce operator time, so less time is spent waiting.
Available in two models, the Byko-Visc RT and Byko-Visc RT Lite, each feature versatility and compatibility with three different sensitivities and optional accessories. The Byko-Visc RT line can measure viscosity from a near water-like, very high viscosity to even the most viscous epoxies, sealants and pastes.
The Byko-Visc RT features a snap-on spindle attachment that is said to save operator time while protecting the instrument, as well as an adjustable stand to enable the user to raise and lower the viscometer head. The new line is also compatible with many other rotational viscometer models in terms of results, measurement parameters and accessories, such as spindles. This will also enable users to seamlessly transition to a Byko-Visc RT system.
The Byko-Visc RT is said to be ideal to test the viscosity of liquids and pastes in compliance with ASTM D2196, ISO 2555 and ISO1652 standards. The instrument is ready right out of the box and no assembly is needed.
