What is it?
Viscosity is a measure of a fluid’s resistance to shearing flow and describes the internal friction of a moving fluid.
The Brookfield Viscometer measures the dynamic viscosity of a fluid, which is the viscosity determined under shearing conditions.
Why do we use it?
Viscosity is the single most important characteristic by which automotive and industrial lubricants are categorised and designed. It is never the only characteristic that is considered, but is most often the starting point when formulating a lubricant.
How does it work?
The Brookfield Viscometer rotates a conical spindle at a precise speed and measures the torque needed to overcome the viscous resistance to the induced movement caused by the presence of sample fluid between the spindle and sample container.
