The Elcometer 2300 range of rotational viscometers measures the viscosity of liquids in accordance with several standards. Using a rotational viscometer, the properties of liquids and their resistance to shear or flow can be accurately measured.

Available in four model variants, with a large selection of speeds, spindles and accessories, this range ensures determining the viscosity of liquids has never been easier. 

  • Accurate, easy to use and reliable: Easy to use control panel.
  • Clear, backlit LCD display: Shows viscosity reading in cP or mPa, spindle rotation speed, % torque, sample temperature, auto range, shear rate and shear stress.
  • Quick connect spindles: Rapid and simple attachment to any of the Elcometer 2300 rotational viscometers.
  • Selectable speeds: Provides a wide range of viscosity and shear rate measurements.
  • Wide range of spindles and accessories: Versatile viscometer can test any liquid.
  • RS232 interface: Allows for data download and complete control of spindle speed via PC on RV2 models.
  • Temperature probe: Directly measure sample temperature.
  • ViscosityMaster™ Software: Powerful yet easy to use software specifically designed to maximise the versatility of the viscometer. Stores data along side associated photographs, test notes and any other information.

Rotational viscometers & other viscosity products
Rotational Viscometers and Cone & Plate are used to gather data on a material’s viscosity behaviour under different conditions. They are ideal for determining viscosity of liquids which do not depend solely on temperature & pressure.

Flow cups and dip cups - Frikmar, Zahn, Shell etc.- measure viscosity using the process of flow through an orifice. This is used as a relative measurement & classification of viscosity.

This kinematic viscosity is expressed in seconds of flow time which can be converted into Centistokes.

Elcometer offer the most comprehensive range of flow cups, dip cups, cone & plate and rotational viscometers to meet your viscosity requirements.

Spindles & Accessories
Spindles
Each Elcometer 2300 is supplied with a set of spindles as standard, which are suitable for use with both Newtonian & non-Newtonian fluids. The large R1 spindle for low viscosity liquid is supplied on request.
Small sample volume adapter
Consists of a cylindrical sample chamber which can be used in conjunction with spindles TL (for low to medium viscosity) or TR (for medium to high viscosity). Used to measure shear rate and shear stress of small volumes between 8 and 13ml / 0.27 and 0.44fl.oz.
Low viscosity adapter
Consists of a cylindrical chamber complete with spindle. Used to accurately obtain viscosity measurements, shear rate and shear stress of low viscosity materials from 1cP(mPa), such as biological fluids, chemicals etc.
High temperature low viscosity adapter
Accurately obtains viscosity measurements, shear rate and shear stress from 1cP (mPa) up to temperatures of 200°C / 392°F. Ideal for hot resins, bitumens and hot oils.
Helical movement adapter
Supplied complete with 6 T-shaped spindles, when attached to an Elcometer 2300, the measuring head moves smoothly up and down, allowing the spindle to cut into the material making a helical path through the sample. Ideal for use with creams, pastes, gels, epoxies etc.

Elcometer 2300 ViscosityMaster™ Software
The ViscosityMaster™ software is the powerful yet easy to use software supplied with all Elcometer 2300 Rotational Viscometers.

When used with the Elcometer 2300 RV1 viscometers, the software is used to transfer data from the viscometer to a PC.

When used with the Elcometer 2300 RV2 viscometers, the software allows bi-lateral transfer of data between the viscometer and PC allowing PC control of the viscometer. The PC can then be quickly set up with simple or advanced programs allowing for more complex tests, including: • Variation des vitesses dans un programme unique
  • Multiple rotation speeds can be set up in one test program
  • Rest periods – where the rotations are stopped for a user defined period

  • ViscosityMaster™ has been specifically designed to maximise the versatility and usability of your viscometer and data can be stored along with associated photographs, test notes and any other test information.
  • You can access all your associated files and folders, create new batches and reports and programme your viscometer.
  • An example batch is pre-loaded into the software allowing you to discover all the features available.
  • When using ViscosityMaster™ software, the Preferences window helps you to customise your working environment.
  • Choose your unit of measurement, default values, spindle type, company name and operator.
  • You can also specify the report page style and whether e-mail reports are formatted as PDF or JPEG files.
  • There are two operating modes, manual and automatic. In manual mode, measurements are recorded as they are taken by the instrument, but the software does not control the viscometer.
  • In PC controlled (automatic) mode, available only on RV2 model viscometers, measurements are recorded and the viscometer can be controlled by the software via the PC.
  • In automatic mode, the viscometer is controlled using processes. Processes are groups of data which specify settings such as spindle speed, rotation, duration, measurement, frequency etc.
  • A single batch can incorporate any number of processes required and are easy to set up using the Process Wizard.
  • Whether you want to use the data collected for analysis or to create professional reports for distribution, ViscosityMaster™ with built in reporting templates and easy data, image and associated files access make managing data quick and easy.
  • Custom reports are simply produced with report wizards and page designers. When complete, the report can be saved and exported as an Adobe PDF (Portable Document File) or a JPEG image and e-mailed as an attachment anywhere you require.
