TQC Sheen Krebs Viscometer

Our modern krebs viscometer is based on the 80-year-old KREBS method for measuring viscosity of paint but with a modern, digital twist.


Industrial viscometer

Brought to you by TQC Sheen, our paint specialist testing brand, this industry-leading krebs viscometer uses a paddle immersed in a vessel containing a fixed volume of the paint under test. A constant speed motor drives the paddle at exactly 200 r.p.m. and the torque induced is proportional to the viscosity of the sample and is converted into viscosity (cP), Krebs units (KU) and weight units (g).

Krebs viscometer DV2300 measurements

You get a direct, accurate reading in KU (Krebs units), cP (centipoise) or g (grams). The unit conversion is done automatically by the instrument and shown on the LCD display. Depending on the setup the measurement is manual and continuous with all three units shown or just one unit shown with max hold functionality or automatic and timed after a set delay.

Rotational Viscometer – Design

Due to the sturdy design of our viscometers, you can use it in the laboratory but also in a harsh production environment. Rotational viscometers measure the viscosity of the sample by turning a spindle in a cup.
