miniAV-LT Single-Bath Sub-Zero Kinematic Viscometer

CANNON product

ASTM D445/D446, ASTM D1655, ASTM D2532, DEF STAN 91:91, IP 71, ISO 3104/3105. For Sub-Zero Kinematic Viscosity of Transparent and Opague Liquids. miniAV®-LT is a fully automated, single sample, benchtop viscometer for low temperature (sub-zero) viscosity testing. 

Category: Tag:


The miniAV-LT Low Temperature Automatic Viscometer is specially designed to handle the unique needs of low temperature (sub-zero) kinematic viscosity determinations of jet fuels, turbine lubricants, and hydraulic fluids.

The miniAV-LT offers determination of kinematic viscosity in accordance with ASTM D445 and D2532 specifications. At the core of the instrument resides the miniAV instrument–providing a familiar system and software interface. The operator places the test sample(s) in small vials in the sample holder(s), enters sample identification information from the computer keyboard, and initiates testing with software commands. Without any further operator involvement, the miniAV-LT determines kinematic viscosity and cleans the capillary tube in preparation for the next test. All pertinent test data can be saved to a computer database for future retrieval and reporting.
