Pharma, Food, Oil, Fuel | Comparison Lovis 2000 M/ME vs Ubbelohde

Viscosity provides information about the flow properties and applicability of many different materials. Lovis 2000 M/ME offers viscosity measurements of low-viscosity liquids for R&D applications and quality control.

Viscosity of Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids

In many industrial processes, ranging from the chemical and manufacturing industries to medicine and food processing, viscosity is an important parameter for intermediate and final product characterization. It is a measure of a fluid’s resistance to flow and is directly affected by the inner (molecular) structure, ambient conditions, shear rate, and other applied forces. With the Lovis 2000 M/ME rolling ball microviscometer, Anton Paar offers a viscometer for measuring a wide range of aqueous and oily samples. Its modularity and small sample volume make it a highly versatile and economic solution for many industries. This application report focuses on the comparability of the Lovis 2000 M/ME with manual glass capillaries (Ubbleohde-type) on the basis of sample volume, measuring time and measuring result.
