Lead Times Vary by Product


The DV1 is AMETEK Brookfield’s workhorse QC viscometer. A low cost, continuous sensing instrument, now with timed measurement function. The DV1 measures viscosity and temperature simultaneously with a choice of 18 different speeds. With its timed measurement function, data can easily be sent to a PC or printer. 

  • LV is for low viscosity materials and can measure the thinnest materials. Typical examples include inks, oils, and solvents.
  • RV is for medium viscosity materials than those measured with an LV torque. Typical examples include creams, food, and paints.
  • HA is for higher viscosity materials than those measured with an RV torque. Typical examples include gels, chocolate, and epoxies.
  • HB is for even higher viscosity materials than those measured with an HA torque spring. Typical examples include asphalt, caulking compounds, and molasses.

Features & Benefits 

  • PC Interface for use with optional software and output connection to printer
  • Available in multiple languages: English, French, German, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish 
  • Direct access to time measurement function (time to torque, time to stop) 
  • Temperature off-set capability to ±5°C 
  • Displayed info includes: viscosity (cP/mP·s), temperature (°C/°F), shear rate/stress, % torque, spindle/speed  
  • Torque measurement accuracy: 1% of full-scale range
  • Repeatability: 0.2% of full-scale range 
  • Select all functions from user-friendly keypad 
  • Auto-zero function to ensure precision torque measurement 
  • Auto-range function to define full scale range (FSR) for all spindle/speed combinations 
  • Warns of under- or over-range torque measurement condition 
  • Timed Stop feature to measure viscosity at precise user specified time interval 
  • Time to Torque feature to measure the time interval for sample to reach user defined torque value
