Viscosity Flow Cups are very easy to use instruments of anodized aluminium with a stainless steel orifice, for measuring the consistency of paints, varnishes and similar products. The measured kinematic viscosity is generally expressed in seconds(s) flow time. If the Standards stipulate conversion methods the flow time can be converted into Centistokes (cSt).
Elcometer offers the option to order the FORD/ASTM Viscosity Flow Cups complete with calibration certificates which offer traceability and assurance that the viscosity cups have been individually tested and comply to Standards. The flow cups can be supplied separately or with an adjustable stand which includes a precision level and an overflow glass draw plate. The stand can also be supplied with a flow jacket for temperature control (thermojacket).
