The viscosity of oils and lubricants are essential to the industry. In the case viscosity is not checked or Insufficient lubrication can lead to mechanical friction, wear, heat, and potential equipment failure when it comes to machinery. Being able to successfully monitor viscosity can allow you to simultaneously detect conditions including fuel dilution, oxidation, water dilution, wear, and thermal breakdown.
VROC® powered viscometers deliver accurate and reliable viscosity results that are required to understand behaviors of oils, batch to batch. By applying a wide range of viscosities and shear rates, you can gain a full length range of insight into your lubricants.

The viscosity of engine oils can indicate if the oil has degraded and is in need of replacement.
ASTM, also known as American Society for Testing and Materials, has defined many processes in the oil industry. Following an ASTM standard.
