New Fully Automatic Krebs Viscometer Elcometer 2250



Fully Automatic Krebs Viscosity Test from Elcometer



Manchester, UK May 2011 – Elcometer are pleased to announce the launch of the new Elcometer 2250 Krebs Viscometer. Featuring a unique automatic test mode, the Elcometer 2250 measures the viscosity of paints, varnishes, adhesives, pastes and liquid inks at the touch of a button.


With a fixed spindle speed of 200rpm - accurate to ±1%, the Elcometer 2250 offers users both a fully automatic or manual Krebs viscosity test, displaying the viscosity on screen in a choice of Krebs Units, Grams or Centipoise.


Reliable and consistent results can be achieved using the instrument’s ‘Automatic’ mode – ideal for continuous testing. Simply position the sample on the support and press ‘Start’. The drive head automatically moves down until the spindle is immersed in the sample at the correct position. After a pause to let the sample settle the test will begin and, once complete, the head automatically returns to the start position allowing the sample to be removed.


The Elcometer 2250 can also be used in ‘Manual’ Mode – ideal for testing when using non-standard container sizes.


Key features include:

  • Fully automatic Krebs test – simply position the sample and press ‘Start’.
  • Standard Krebs spindle with fixed speed of 200rpm.
  • Designed for ‘automatic’ use with either a 600ml beaker, 1 pint or ½ pint container or with non-standard containers and sample volumes.
  • Choice of measuring units: Krebs Units (KU), Grams (g) or Centipoise (cP).
  • Results can be printed to a thermal printer for a permanent record.
  • Date and time stamp for each reading.
