John Morris Scientific introduces the new miniPV-HX viscometers from Cannon Instrument.  

Based on the miniAV design, the new miniPV-HX viscometers feature added functionality for the measurement of polymer solution viscosity. The miniPV-HX is suitable for aggressive acids and solvents commonly used for the dilute solution viscosity measurement of polymers.  

The completely automatic miniPV-HX viscometers feature automated operation for tube filling, cleaning and drying along with flow time measurement and data logging into a standard database format.  

The Viscpro II software supplied with the miniPV-HX viscometers helps determine relative viscosity based on accurate flow time measurements to 1/100th of a second made under conditions of temperature control within 1/100th of a degree.  

Reduced and inherent viscosity values can also be reported and the intrinsic viscosity can be determined by one of two single-point methods, or the more rigorous Huggins-Kraemer analysis. The software also supports Mark-Houwink-Sakurada parameters and an optional branching factor for reporting polymer molecular weight.  

Key features of miniPV-HX viscometers:  

  • Measures about 77cm in height and has a benchtop footprint of about 40cm² 
  • Modular design includes a control unit and solvent station that can be stacked to conserve workspace 
  • Viscpro II software provides flexible report formatting and versatile data export functionality 
  • Integrated auto sampler allows an entire sequence of samples to be measured without an attending operator
