Removable Sample Chamber
The design of the Small Sample Adapter allows the sample chamber to be easily changed
and cleaned without disturbing the set-up of the viscometer or temperature bath. This
means that successive measurements can be made under identical conditions.
The sample chamber fits into a water jacket so that precise temperature control can be
achieved when the Brookfield circulating temperature bath is used. The stirring action of
the rotating spindle, plus the small sample volume, helps to keep the temperature gradient
across the sample to a minimum. Direct readout of sample temperature is provided using
sample chambers with optional embedded RTD sensor connected to the DV1 and DV2T
Viscometers and the DV3T Rheometer. Working temperature range for the Small Sample
Adapter is from 1°C to 100°C.
The Small Sample Adapter’s coaxial cylinder geometry provides extremely accurate viscosity
measurements at defined shear rates.
Disposable Sample Chambers and SC4-27D Spindle
Disposable 13R chambers, for hard-to-clean materials, are available in a kit that comes
complete with 100 chambers and special-sized water jacket (Part No. SSA-DCU). Additional
disposable chambers can be purchased in quantities of 100
(Part No. SC4-13RD-100).
Small Sample Adapter is now available with special EZ-Lock spindle coupling for use on
standard Brookfield Viscometers/Rheometers already equipped with the EZ-Lock feature.
