Viscosity Process Analyzer VISC-4


The BARTEC BENKE Viscosity Process Analyzer (VISC-4) is a continuously kinematic viscosity measuring capillary analyzer suited to measure the viscosity of a product. The VISC-4 operates online. It serves to monitor/maintain product quality for the in-spec production of mineral oil products.

Three basic variants are available:
  • measuring temperature 20 to 60°C (68 to 140°F)
  • measuring temperature 41 to 60°C (106 to 140°F)
  • measuring temperature 61 to 100°C (142 to 212°F)

Each variant available with following measuring ranges:

  • viscosity 0.7 to 30 cSt
  • viscosity 10 to 500 cSt


Special Features

  • Direct and continuous measurement of kinematic viscosity
  • Direct comparison with laboratory results without any need for conversion
  • Integral measurement of the density
  • Calculation and display of the dynamic viscosity
  • Temperature control and insulating system without oil bath/pumps
  • Minimized maintenance requirements
  • Compliance of the temperature stability (0.02 K) as defined in standard ASTM D 445
  • Necessity of Hagenbach correction is eliminated
  • Multi-stream capability
  • Automatic rinsing and draining facility
  • Integrated failure diagnosis and self monitoring
  • No atmospheric drain required, backpressure at analyzer outlet permitted
  • Single-Phase Power Supply
  • Wide range of acceptable sample- and coolant temperature at analyzer inlet
  • Available communication interfaces:
  • Modbus/RTU, Modbus/TCP (bidirectional)
  • Remote Access via modem, ISDN, LAN, VPN
