Description: The Brookfield DV2T Viscometer measures fluid viscosity at given shear rates. The principal of operation of the DV2T is to drive a spindle (which is immersed in the test fluid) through a calibrated spring. The viscous drag of the fluid against the spindle is measured by the spring deflection. Spring deflection is measured with a rotary transducer. The measurement range of a DV2T (in centipoise or milliPascal•seconds) is determined by the rotational speed of the spindle, the size and shape of the spindle, the container the spindle is rotating in, and the full scale torque of the calibrated spring


  • Speeds: 0.1 – 200 RPM.
  • Temperature Sensing Range: -20˚C to 180˚C.
  • Viscosity Accuracy: ±1.0% of full scale range.
  • Viscosity Repeatability: ±0.2% of Full Scale Range.
