Features & Benefits

Meets AASHTO T201, ASTM D2170 and ASTM D445 precision requirements

  • Developed specifically for asphalt kinematic viscosity testing at 60 °C and 135 °C
  • Instrument temperature range: 40 °C to 150 °C
  • Viscosity range: 0.5 mm²/s (cSt) to 10,000 mm²/s (cSt)* in 100-fold increments (easily covering the range of 5 separate manual glass viscometers)
  • A well tested CANNON viscometer platform offers reliability and dependable support
  • Includes adjustable sample preheater and heated waste lines

Simple, automated benchtop testing

  • Automation provides an alternative to labor-intensive manual testing and reduces operator to operator variability
  • VISCPRO® PC software enables one PC to manage and control up to four instruments
  • User-configurable reports may be viewed, printed, saved and exported
  • Up to 12 determinations/hour

Compact, convenient design

  • Modular bath for easy maintenance access
  • System fits in roughly the same benchtop area as an analytical balance

Reduced maintenance and consumable costs

  • Ubbelohde-style tube reduces solvent usage and disposal costs by 50%
  • Operators physically replace tubes in minutes, eliminating the need for related service calls
  • Single-point temperature calibration allows calibration at a single relevant test temperature and avoids the need for tube recalibration at other temperatures
  • Instrument includes standard dual-solvent input

* Some upper viscosity measurements may be limited by test temperature and sample type.
