  • Application notes - viscosity measurement

    Most laboratory viscometers employ the well-known principle of rotational viscometers to measure viscosity by sensing the torque required to rotate a spindle at a constant speed while it is immersed in the sample fluid. This is because the torque, generally measured using the reaction torque on the motor, is proportional to the viscous drag on the immersed spindle and thus the viscosity of the ...

  • E-Guide Measuring Oil Viscosity

    The most important physical property of a lubricating oil is viscosity. Viscosity determines the load carrying ability of the oil as well as how easily it circulates. The correct balance between high viscosity for load carrying and low viscosity for ease of circulation must be considered for any lubricant and its application. ...

  • In Situ Rheological Monitoring of Viscous Non-Newtonian Fluids using a Helical Ribbon Agitator

    Mechanically degraded food fluids were modelled as Power law fluids in a pilot scale (42 l) helical ribbon agitation vessel. Effective rheological representative flow curves determined from speed/torque data proved comparable to off-line laboratory rheometer measured data. Modelling effective viscosity as a Power law function gave effective consistency coefficient Keff which correlated strongly ...

  • Determination of diurnal water level fluctuations in headwaters

    The aim of this paper is to study diurnal fluctuations of the water level in streams draining headwaters and to identify the controlling factors. The fieldwork was carried out in the Gryżynka River catchment, western Poland. The water levels of three streams draining into the headwaters via a group of springs were monitored in the years 2011–2014. Changes in the water pressure and water ...
