Rhopoint Krebs and all Viscosity Instruments are discontinued permanently.
The PAINTLAB+ Krebs Viscometer offers high accuracy viscosity measurement with advanced functionality such as:
  • Precise measurement
  • Fully automated
  • Paint resistant design
  • User certifiable

Viscosity measurement of coatings is essential at each stage of the manufacturing process to ensure consistent quality standards.

Many parameters can affect the rheological behaviour of a finished coating resulting in undesirable effects such as sagging, levelling, brushability and atomisation. The use of high precision measuring instruments is therefore essential in quality control to prevent such problems occurring during formulation, manufacture and application.

Features of the Rhopoint Krebs Viscometer:

  • Real time high resolution graphing of test samples
  • Results displayed on screen immediately after test in KU, g and cP
  • High stability motor speed control for accuracy and repeatability of measurement
  • Integrated temperature probe to check and record sample temperature prior to testing
  • Automatic lowering of paddle to test height for selected container
  • Quick release magnetic paddle for easy removal and cleaning
  • Easy clean design- even in the harshest environment both screen and chassis are easy to clean
  • Date / time stamped results output to printer
  • Annual re-calibration can be performed by user
  • Extended warranty
