microVISC-m Overview


 

microVISC-m is the ultimate solution for your routine lubricant viscosity measurements. This model of the microVISC series incorporate a particular firmware that enables measurements comparable to ASTM Method D445, providing viscosity readings at ambient or room temperature in addition to extrapolating and calculating sample measurements at 40 and 100 °C. This is exceptionally essential for lubricant oil applications. 
 
Battery-operated and portable, microVISC-m can be deployed at any laboratory location or in the field. microVISC-m has been adopted by leading companies worldwide as their choice for quick, easy, and rapid viscometric measurements.

What Is VROC Technology?


 

Understanding Fluid Behavior — Measuring Absolute Viscosity
 
With VROC® Technology, the standard principle for viscosity measurements are visualized on a micron scale by combining microfluidic with MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical-Systems) sensor technology. The VROC Chip provides a new platform that accommodates small sample volume while allowing a wide dynamic range and absolute precision beyond the capabilities of a traditional rotational rheometer. 
VROC Viscometer Rheometer on a Chip
 
Scientific Principle:
 
The VROC Chip (or cell) contains a rectangular slit flow channel with uniform width and depth. The sample is injected at a constant flow rate while the MEMS pressure sensors measure the pressure drop between each sensor. The pressure drop is proportional to the shear stress, which viscosity is then calculated by dividing the shear stress by the shear rate described in the principle.

Chip Selection


 
Choosing the VROC chip(s) for your instrument depends on the user's desired shear rate range, viscosity range, and particle size (if applicable).
 
RheoSense offers transparent dummy chips with which one an study the effectiveness of candidate cleaning solvents. These dummy chips can also be used for sample compatibility and configuring cleaning protocols without the risk of breaking the VROC Chip.
