Helical Movement Adaptor
Elcometer 2300 Rotational Viscometers Helical Movement Adaptor Some materials, such as creams, pastes and gels, do not flow easily, so standard spindles and testing methods cannot be used as they create a ‘hole’ in the material, generating invalid results.
The measuring head, when attached to the Elcometer 2300, moves smoothly up and down and automatically stays within pre-programmed limits.
This allows the needle style spindle to cut into the material, making a helical path through the sample, making the measurement of viscosity. The kit is supplied with the motor and 6 T-shaped spindles: PA, PB, PC, PD, PE, PF.
