Power Point Presentation

Introducing a new approach to measuring viscosity!


  • Small Sample Volume
  • Disposable Sample Container
  • Sealed Vial for Measurement

From the esteemed Japanese manufacturer KEM (Kyoto Electronics Manufacturing Company, LTD) comes a new instrument that is at the forefront of viscosity testing technology.

The EMS-1000 Vicsometer provides contact-free measurement. The sample is placed in a disposable tube, and an aluminum sphere - also disposable - is dropped in. Inside the instrument, magnets surrounding the tube create a rotating magnetic field that drives the motion of the sphere within the sample.

The disposable tube and sphere allow for a sterile testing environment. There's no clean-up required at the end of the test. All you have to do is throw away the sample tube, preventing the possibility of cross-contamination between products or samples. 

Measurement accuracy for toxic, volatile, or air-sensetive samples is ensured with the EMS-1000 Viscometer's sealed measuring cell. A CMOS camera also makes it easy to observe coagulation or detect impurities by letting you see the sample tube during the test.

Temperature control between 0 to 200oC is a built-in feature of the instrument. Tests can also be conducted at elevated pressures
