SB+2    Scanning Brookfield Technique / Gelation Index
Low-temperature measurement of viscosities from -5C to -40C or below. Automated data acquisition and analysis. Tabular and graphical printout of Gelation Index and Gelation Index Temperature. The viscosity/temperature curve is continuously updated and displayed on the monitor while data is written to disk for later analysis. The PlusTwo model also permits running five additional low-temperature tests: MRV-TP1 (ASTM D 4684), Pour Point (D 97), Stable Pour Point (FTM 203C), Kinematic Viscosity (D 445) and Brookfield (D 2983). Principle: - Liquid bath for analyzing fluids at low temperatures.
ASTM D 4684, ASTM D 97, ASTM D 445, ASTM D 2983
Special Features: - Programmable and Manual bath controls. - Viewing window into bath. - Easily removable Insert Modules for adaptation to other tests . - Removable viscometer Bracket for D2983 testing.
