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
