Elcometer 1800 Density Cup Stainless Steel

The Elcometer 1800 Density Cup is a stainless steel precision cup for determining the specific gravity or density of paints and similar products.

The Pyknometer consists of a cylindrical container and lid with a hole for the exhaust of excess liquid.

How to use a Density Cup:

  • Weigh the Cup and Lid when empty
  • Fill with the liquid
  • Place lid on the Cup, removing excess liquid*
  • Weigh the Density Cup when full
  • Divide the weight by the cup volume/capacity to determine the Specific Gravity

*Each Pyknometer has an escape hole in the lid to allow excess liquid to escape.  Any excess liquid should be removed before weighing.
