Brookfield AMETEK — New viscometer for flexographic printing
USA • Brookfield AMETEK announced its latest DVE Viscometer featuring a new user interface and keypad. The updated device has a contemporary design, adopting the look and feel of the DV1, DV2T and DV3T family, the company said. It also offers a choice of scientific units for viscosity measurement including both cgs units: cP (centipoises) and P (Poise), and SI units: Pa-s (Pascal-seconds) and mPa-s (milliPascal-seconds). Viscosity test parameters including spindle identity and rotational speed can now be quickly selected from a table in the instrument’s memory. And, the new display shows test control parameters (spindle, speed) and measured values (percent torque, viscosity).
