The byko-visc RT rotational viscometer provides precise measurement results, with each test condition recorded for detailed results analysis and review. Because of rigorous quality control (QC), this precision is repeatable day-to-day and instrument-to-instrument. Each instrument comes with an ISO 17025 calibration certificate to confirm this performance. Joining the BYK-Gardner offering of viscosity instruments—flow cups, bubble viscometers, the digital stormer viscometer, and cone and plate viscometers—it now brings a comprehensive solution for customers’ QC needs. 

Versatile Features 

The byko-visc RT rotational viscometer offers an intuitive navigation, many control options, and a large capacitive color touch-screen display, which includes preset buttons to quickly recall often-used measuring parameters. These benefits reduce operator time, so users spend less time waiting. 

The viscometer also features an easy snap-on spindle attachment, which saves operator time while protecting the instrument. An adjustable stand allows users to easily raise and lower the viscometer head. It also features a solvent-resistant housing. The instrument is ready right out of the box, with no assembly required. The new line is also compatible with many other rotational viscometer models in terms of results, measurement parameters, and accessories, such as spindles. This also allows users to seamlessly transition to a byko-visc RT system.

Two Models 

This viscometer is available in two models: the byko-visc RT and byko-visc RT Lite. Each model features versatility and compatibility, with three different sensitivities and optional accessories. The byko-visc RT line measures viscosity in materials such as lacquers, paints, primers, resins, lubricants, and pharmaceuticals. Measured substances can be from a near water-like, to very high viscosity, to even the most viscous epoxies, sealants, and pastes. 

The byko-visc RT is suitable for testing the viscosity of liquids and pastes in compliance with ASTM D2196, ISO 2555, and ISO1652 standards. With this level of precision, measurements will be accurate every time.
