Questions Answers
Can the viscosimeters be dried after cleaning in the drying cabinet? If yes, what is the maximum temperature? The viscosimeter can be dried in the drying cabinet - preferably in a vacuum. We recommend a maximum temperature of 120°C.
I would like to measure totally different oils. How do I rinse the viscosimeters between measurements? Pour the samples out of the viscosimeters or suction them out and then rinse repeatedly with a suitable solvent (such as petroleum spirit). Finally rinse again with a volatile solvent (such as acetone or light petroleum) and dry the viscosimeter using a dust-free air flow, preferably generated by underpressure (for example, water jet pump).
