MiniVisc Series


MiniVisc viscometers are the first truly portable, solvent-free, temperature-controlled 40°C kinematic viscometers, providing high-accuracy measurements for easy detection of viscosity variations caused by contamination, mix-up and oil degradation. The devices were designed to determine kinematic viscosity in the field for applications where immediate results are essential for determining the health of critical equipment. The MiniVisc family includes two models

  • MiniVisc 3050 portable viscometer, 1-700 cSt @ 40° C
  • MiniVisc 3000 portable viscometer, 10-350 cSt @ 40° C

Features & Benefits

  • Conforms to ASTM WK40831 – “New Test Method for Field Determination of Kinematic Viscosity Using Microchannel Viscometer”
  • A measure of a liquid’s flow under the influence of gravity is provided at a constant temperature, so viscosity can be compared and trended with prior readings. Requires no density check, temperature measurement, instrument pre-configuration or calculation
  • Using a very small sample size; the sampling chamber controls temperature while infrared sensors measure flow and trajectory, delivering immediate results
  • Self-contained with high-resolution touch screen, battery and microprocessor
  • Works with transparent and opaque oils
  • No cleaning solvent necessary
  • Designed for remote locations, the MiniVisc 3000 series includes a hinged cover that protects the sample chamber and touch screen while being carried by hand, in a toolbox or in a knapsack

Battery operated

Stays charged for more than 6 hours. Built-in universal charger for use worldwide; region-specific power cable included. The MiniVisc units can be ordered as a combination kit with the FluidScan® 1000 or 1100 portable infrared fluid condition monitors.
