The economical, accurate method of checking viscosity.
RECOMMENDED FOR QUALITY ASSURANCE
The Consistometer is a low cost, durable, instrument for
accurately checking laboratory or production samples against
consistency, viscosity or flow rate standards.
It uses little bench space yet is probably the simplest, most
accurate method of conducting a variety of flow associated tests.
It is already widely used in the chemical, paint, cosmetic and food
processing industries.It provides a single parameter for a variety
of flow tests which can be carried out over any period under as
near identical conditions as possible.
The Consistometer or Bostwick Consistometer is manufactured from
stainless steel engraved with a series of precise graduations at
0.5 cm intervals.
To ensure accurate reproducibility the instrument is levelled
using the adjustment screws and spirit level.
METHOD OF USE
1. A measured sample, usually 75 ml, is placed in the resevoir
behind the gate.
2. The gate is released, by pressing the lock release lever -
the spring action ensures it opens instantaneously.
3. As the fluid flows down the instrument its progress can be
accurately measured using the graduated scale. By comparing
the flow rate to specified time periods the physical properties of
the sample can be calculated.
An extended version of the Consistometer is available upon
