THE LATEST addition to RheoSense’s VROC (viscometer/rheometer-on-a-chip) family, the Microvisc TC, provides precise temperature control for the handheld Microvisc viscometer.
Temperature dependence is one of the most important factors in determining viscosity, and a tiny variation can generate significantly errors in results.
The Microvisc TC temperature controller promises accurate viscosity measurement, says Rheosense, to eliminate any uncertainty and improve the quality of laboratory viscometry tests.
The unit operates on the solid-state Peltier temperature control method, and has a temperature range of 15-50C. A PID controller with advanced fuzzy logic gives temperature control with an accuracy of 0.02C and stability of 0.07C.
Optional software allows remote temperature control, and touchpad operation of the Microvisc.
