The Brookfield Enhanced UL Adapter is used
with any standard Brookfield Viscometer and
Rheometer to make accurate and reproducible
measurements on low viscosity materials.
Newtonian and non-Newtonian materials can be
measured. It is most commonly used with the LV
series instrument (at 60 rpm, these models have
a full scale range of 1-10 cP with the UL Adapter).
The UL Adapter consists of a precision cylindrical
spindle rotating inside an accurately machined
tube. Its rheologically correct cylindrical
geometry provides extremely accurate viscosity
measurements and shear rate determinations.
The tube has a removable end cap which allows
the open ended tube to be used in a beaker or
tank. With the cap in place, the closed tube can
be immersed in a temperature bath or used with
the ULA-40Y water jacket for precise temperature
control. Working temperature range is from 1°C
to 65°C. Use Closed Tubes for higher temperature
