– Safe operation, low maintenance

Portable Submersible Viscometer VM-250 SERIES best suited for liquid viscosity and temperature measurements directly in the storage or process tanks (up to 6 meters depth). No labor extensive and errors critical sampling required. Instead, the sensors of VM-250 SERIES can be submersed at any required level and record spot viscosity and real temperature at that point directly in the liquid. The operation personal can get in minutes the average viscosity in the tank and its viscosity / temperature / level profile, for example, at every meter.
