PCE-RVI 7 Viscometer / Viscosity Meter
Rotational viscometer to measure viscosity according to the Brookfield method

PCE-RVI 7 is a rotational viscometer used in industrial and research applications to measure viscosity according to the Brookfield method. Featuring 3 different viscosity measuring ranges, this viscometer is delivered with spindles R1, R2 and R3 and displays measurements in millipascal-second (mPa.s) and decipascal-second (dPa.s).

Basic operation
To turn on the viscometer, press and hold the enter button for 2 seconds. Once the display shows the rotational speed, the current viscosity, the selected spindle, the battery status and the full scale percentage, press the up or down buttons to find the applicable spindle and press the enter button to confirm your selection. Press enter again to start the measurement. Be sure your sample is in place before pressing the enter button, as the enter button begins rotation of the spindle. When you have finished your viscosity test, press enter to stop the measurement and the rotation.


Ideal for testing, development, manufacture and quality control in the food, chemical, paint and cosmetics industries as well as for the study of materials, this viscometer:

- Offers a lightweight yet sturdy frame for ease of portability
- Comes with a factory / manufacturer calibration certificate
- Includes a protective, foam-filled, hard-plastic carrying case
- Provides a max. battery life of up to 30 hours of continuous use
- Maintains a constant speed of 62.5 revolutions per minute (rpm)
