ACCESSORIES
SMALL SAMPLE ADAPTER

The Small Sample Adapter (SSA), consisting of a cylindrical sample chamber and spindle, provides a defined geometry system for accurate viscosity measurements of small sample volumes in the order of 2 to 16 ml at precise shear rates. The Small Sample Adapter’s rheologically correct cylindrical geometry provides extremely accurate viscosity measurements and shear rate determinations. The design of the SSA allows the sample chamber to be easily changed and cleaned without disturbing the set-up of the viscometer or temperature bath. This means that successive measurements can be made under identical conditions. The sample chamber fits into a flow jacket so that precise temperature control can be achieved when a Brookfield circulating temperature bath is used. Direct readout of sample temperature is provided using sample chambers with embedded RTD temperature sensors connected to the DV1 (w/temperature option), DV2T, or the DVNext. Working temperature range for the SSA is from 1°C to 100°C.

Features:

  • For rheological evaluation of materials where sample volume is limited
  • Sample chamber easily changed
  • Optional disposable chamber also available
  • Water jacket allows rapid and precise temperature control of sample
  • Simultaneous sample temperature measurement is possible by ordering embedded temperature probe in sample chamber

Also available with disposable sample chambers and magnetic option.

dv1_helipath-resized HELIPATH STAND

The Helipath Stand is designed for measurement of non-flowing substances such as gels, pastes, creams and putty using a T-bar shaped spindle.

The Brookfield Helipath™ Stand is designed to slowly lower or raise a Brookfield Viscometer/Rheometer so that its rotating T-bar spindle will describe a helical path through the test sample. By always cutting into fresh material, the problem of channeling or separating is eliminated and meaningful viscosity/consistency measurements can be made. The automatic reversing feature of the Helipath™ Stand allows measurements to be made over a variable period of time.

Features:

  • Designed for viscosity/consistency measurement of gels, pastes, creams, putty, gelatin and other non-flowing substances.
  • A Brookfield Viscometer or Rheometer is mounted on the Helipath drive motor and a T-bar spindle is attached to the viscometer using a special coupling. The drive motor slowly lowers or raises the viscometer so that the T-bar spindle creates a helical path through the test sample thus eliminating the problem of “channeling”.
  • Compatible with standard Brookfield Viscometers and DVNext Rheometers
  • Simple to set up and clean
  • Provides a solution for hard-to-measure materials
  • T-Bar Spindles
  • Can be used with any standard Brookfield Viscometer and is supplied complete with a set of six T-bar spindles and a special coupling

VISCOSITY STANDARDS
GENERAL PURPOSE SILICONE

Silicone viscosity standard fluids are most commonly used to verify calibration of Brookfield lab Viscometers / Rheometers and are less temperature sensitive than mineral oils. General purpose silicone fluids are the most commonly used standard for verifying calibration of your Brookfield Viscometer / Rheometer. Silicone Standards are Newtonian fluids which are accurate to ±1% of viscosity value. Silicone fluids provide excellent temperature stability and are less temperature sensitive than oil viscosity standards. Brookfield Viscosity Standards are certified by methods traceable to the United States National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The selection of one or two fluids will normally provide sufficient measurement points to verify calibration of your instrument. All fluids are supplied in ½ liter (1 pint) containers complete with a certificate of calibration.

Features:

  • Accuracy: ±1% of viscosity value
  • Excellent temperature stability
  • Recommended for use with Brookfield and most other rotational viscometers
  • Most economical
  • Special viscosity values and temperature calibrations available upon request
