Product Description

elcometer-1800-densimeter-picnometer-specific-gravity-cups

 

The Elcometer 1800 Densimeter / Picnometer / Specific Gravity Cups is a stainless steel or anodised aluminium precision instrument for determining the specific weight of paints and similar products. This instrument consists of a cylindrical container and cover with a hole for exhaust of tested liquid excess.These can be supplied with or without a tare weight for weighing on a balance.

As the Specific Gravity Cup is an exact measurement of the volume of the liquid, it is imperative that the exact weight of the sample is obtained. Elcometer offers a range of cups and laboratory balances for accurate measurements during the development of a coating.

How to use a Density Cup:

  • Weigh the Cup when empty
  • Fill with the liquid
  • Place lid on the Cup*
  • Weigh the Gravity Cup when full and divide the weight by the volume to determine the Specific Gravity

*Note that each Cup has an escape hole in the lid to allow excess liquid to escape.  Any excess liquid should be removed before weighing.

The Elcometer 1800 Densimeter Picnometer Specific Gravity Cups can be used in accordance with:

  • ISO 2811-1
  • ASTM D 891-B
  • ASTM D 1475
  • DIN 53217-2
  • FTMS 141 4183
  • NBN T22-110
  • NFT 30-020

The standards not in bold have been superseded but are still recognised in some industries.
