The CANNON Thermoelectrically-Cooled Cold-Cranking Simulators measure the apparent viscosity of oils at temperatures from –35°C to –5°C with the CCS-2100 and –40°C to –5°C with the CCS-2100LT within a viscosity range of 900 mPa•s to 25,000 mPas.
The CCS-2100 and the CCS-2100LT combines automatic sample loading, computer-controlled operation, and solvent-free cleaning to permit completely unattended operation. No further operator involvement is required after initial loading of the sample table and identification of samples. The CCS-2100 will automatically test up to 30 samples at one time, calculate their viscosities, and record the results, freeing the operator for other tasks.
Improved temperature management of the rotor/stator eliminates the need for grouping the samples by temperature of analysis, as was necessary in previous CCS models. In addition, a thermoelectric sample warming cycle greatly improves the sample flushing process.
