The KU-3 Viscometer displays, Krebs units, gram units and centipoise for paints, coatings and inks.
Brookfield offers a completely digital calculating Krebs Unit Instrument with all the reliability you'd expect in Brookfield instrumentation...now with relative centipoises display.
Why the KU-3? This instrument is used widely for making viscosity measurements on paints/coatings in accordance with ASTM D562.
Continuous sensing and display in Krebs units, grams, and centipoise
Magnetic spindle coupling
Allows rapid sample measurement to determine required consistency
LED Digital Display of: Krebs Units (increased resolution in 0.1 KU increments), Grams (in 1 gm increments) and Centipoise (cP)
Expanded measurement range (40 to 141 KU; 32 to 1099 g; 27 to 5274 cP).
Accuracy to ±1% of full scale range.
Reproducibility to ±0.5% of full scale range.
Output to parallel printer for automatic test documentation.
Easy to use; no weights; simplifies an established test procedure.
Compatible with industry specification (ASTM D562).
Base accommodates standard pint, ½ pint, and quart cans.
The optional paste spindle is suitable for use with high consistency materials such as roller mil pastes.
NIST traceable viscosity standards available
