Viscosity of Lubricating Oil with SVM 3001 - .PDF file.


Anton Paar’s new SVM 3001 Stabinger Viscometer is a highly precise kinematic viscometer with an integrated density measuring cell. SVM 3001 gives you more parameters than any other kinematic viscometer on the market. A single measuring cycle on a small sample volume yields kinematic viscosity, density, dynamic viscosity, viscosity index and more.

As the density cell of SVM 3001 is integrated, the density measurement does not need to be carried out separately. One combined measuring cell covers the entire measuring range for viscosity, density and temperature and is filled in one go. Due to its measuring principle, the measurement duration is independent of the sample’s viscosity. A minimum sample amount of only 1.5 ml is sufficient for the multi-parameter results including calculation of API degrees.

Peltier elements allow for unparalleled heating rates of up to 20°C per minute. As the heating is electrical, no thermal transfer liquids are needed. By using the special VI method, temperature changes are performed automatically and the viscosity index is calculated in compliance with ASTM D2270.

SVM 3001 is characterized by unbeatable ease of operation – injecting of the sample by syringe ensures easy, safe and fast handling as well as simple cleaning with minimised risk of leakage or breakage, but also low solvent and sample consumption. Multiple parameters are shown on the new 10x4in touch screen. Intuitive display widget shows measurement precision and repeat deviation for both viscosity and density at a glance.

FillingCheck allows for monitoring of the filling quality in real time. This feature saves valuable operating time by bubble detection already during the measurement.

Productivity is maximised by employing an Anton Paar’s sample changer. The automation option ideally serves all applications where high throughput is required.

With the state-of-the-art user management, including an audit trail option for a full traceability of your measurement, accounts for all of your users can be created. The storage capacity amounts to 1,000 data points. Data export can be conveniently performed via USB storage device, printer or ethernet.

The new SVM 3001 is designed for testing of lubricating oils, base oils and additives but also grease and wax in compliance with ASTM D7042, D2270, D4052, D7152, D6074 and EN ISO 12185.
