Failure to continuously monitor accurate oil viscosity can lead to potential disaster when it comes to refineries. Many factors can easily affect the viscosity of the oil thus viscosity
must be monitored frequently. With the goal of facilitating faster and simpler oil viscosity measurements, microVISC-m
, has been made to provide the perfect combination of portability and accuracy that allows the end user to perform proper oil condition monitoring.
This application note utilizes well-established calculations specified in ASTM D341, which correlates to the equation for kinematic viscosity with temperature:
programmed to calculate the kinematic viscosity based on the dynamic viscosity and density at ambient temperatures. End users can enter the kinematic viscosity values of new oil at 40 ºC and 100 ºC.
