Flow cups are designed to accurately measure the viscosity
of paints, inks, varnishes and similar products.
Viscosity Standards are necessary for checking the entire procedure used in viscometric measurements including timing, temperature control, cleaning as well as the characteristics of the individual cups
Viscosity cups remain the most important quick and simple method to measure the consistency of fluids in the laboratory and in production. Viscosity Cups are, however only suitable for lower viscosity and not for highly viscous substances such as pastes etc. The most accurate results are achieved with fluids within the range complying with Newton’s Law.
It is important to follow all the steps of regular calibration, to assure that the flow cup is in good, working condition.
