Elcometer 2210 Zahn Viscosity Dip Cups

The Elcometer 2210 Zahn Dip Cup is a small U-shaped viscosity cup suspended from a looped wire.

This method is ideal for measuring the consistency of paints, varnishes and similar products.

Simply dip the cup into the product to be measured, lift it out and measure how long it takes for the contents to empty through the orifice.

There are five cups with five different orifice sizes available, ranging from 5 to 1840cSt.

ElcoCalc™ Mobile App

Fast and easy to use, ElcoCalc™ instantly converts viscosity cup flow time in seconds into Centistokes (cSt).

ElcoCalc™ is free software that is available on Android and the App Store. Compatible with Android™ mobile devices running Android™ 2.1 or later and also iPod, iPhone and iPad running iOS 4.0 or later.

How to measure viscosity using Elcometer Dip Cups

When measuring the viscosity of a liquid, it is a common misconception that you are measuring how thick or thin a liquid is. What you are really measuring is the resistance a fluid has to flow.

There are a number of ways to measure the viscosity of a liquid, one of which is dip cups.
