Elcometer 2310 Shell Viscosity Dip Cups

The Elcometer 2310 Shell Viscosity Dip Cups are stainless steel cups for quick measurements on-site or during production.

These viscosity dip cups are often used in the printing or ink industry.

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.

The measured kinematic viscosity is generally expressed in seconds (s) flow time, which can be converted into Centistokes (cSt).

Elcometer viscosity dip cups are available in six different orifice sizes for measurements between 2 and 1300cSt.

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.
