RION Viscotester (for high viscosity measurement) VT-06

Uni-Cylinder Rotational Viscotester Allows Easy Measurement of Fluid Viscosity

The VT-60 is designed for quality control applications in the manufacturing process of industrial products such as petrochemicals, paint, and adhesives, as well as foodstuffs. Viscosity measurements covering a wide range are possible, such as gear oil used in fluid. The resistance to rotor movement caused by the viscosity (torque) is measured to obtain direct readings.

Viscotester (for high viscosity measurement)






  • Compact and lightweight make the unit easily portable and allow operation with one hand
  • Can be powered by alkaline batteries, nickel-hydride rechargeable batteries, or AC adapter
  • Direct indication of viscosity in decipascal-seconds (SI units)
  • Dedicated stand for measurement available as option



1:  Attach rotor to unit and hold unit in the hand or place on dedicated (Unit should be approximately horizontal in either case.)

2:  Insert rotor in sample fluid, turn power on, and select rotor number.

3:  Press start button and read indicated viscosity.
*The supplied extension rod can reach fluid that is further away. (Only for use with the No.1 and No.2 rotors.)
