MiniVisc 3000
Portable Kinematic Viscometer

The MiniVisc 3000 series (formerly the SpectroVisc Q3000 Series) viscometers are the first truly portable, solvent-free, temperature-controlled kinematic viscometers, providing high-accuracy measurements for easy detection of viscosity variations caused by contamination, mix-up and oil degradation. The devices were designed to determine kinematic viscosity at 40C in the field for applications where immediate results are essential for determining the health of critical equipment.  

MiniVisc 3000 viscometers use a patented split cell design that enables measurement of kinematic viscosity using only a few drops (60µL) of oil. When closed, the centrepieces of the split cell form a funnel with the 100-micron gap allowing oil to flow down by gravity. Sensors along the funnel are triggered when oil flows by and flow time between two sensors is measured.

The kinematic viscosity is then calculated. When opened, the split cell can be easily cleaned with a non-abrasive cleaning pad and ready for next sample. The split cell is controlled at 40C throughout the measurement. 
Key Features
  • Direct kinematic viscosity measurement
  • Split-cell capillary channel
  • Self-contained with high-resolution touch screen, battery and microprocessor
  • Small sample size of 60 µl, reduces waste
  • Controlled temperature (40 °C ±0.1 °C)
  • Provides accurate results for even the dirtiest samples
  • Works with transparent and opaque oils
  • Does not require solvent cleaning
  • Battery operated and built-in universal charger for easy use
  • User-friendly and suitable for remote field use as it quickly provides lubricant viscosity measurement
