To measure the absolute viscosity a rotational viscometer is used. For non-Newtonian liquids a digital viscometer that applies a precise shear rate is needed. For laboratory viscosity measurement BYK-Gardner offers a comprehensive line of rotational viscometers. The viscometer product line can measure viscosity from a near water-like viscosity to a very high viscosity range for epoxy, sealants, and paste. To measure viscosity under a high shear rate Cone and Plate viscometers are available. The easy to use digital Stormer viscometer is also part of the rotational viscometer family.
Rotational viscometers detect viscosity by evaluating the torque required to rotate a spindle immersed in a fluid at a constant speed.

Can rotational viscometers measure both Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids?
Yes, rotational viscometers can measure the viscosity of both Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids, providing valuable insights into their flow behavior.
How often should I calibrate my rotational viscometer?
Calibration frequency depends on various factors, including the manufacturer’s recommendations and your specific usage. It is generally advised to calibrate your viscometer at least once a year or whenever you notice significant deviations in measurement accuracy.
Can rotational viscometers handle high-viscosity samples?
Yes, there are rotational viscometers specifically designed for high-viscosity samples. They offer robust measurements and are capable of accurately assessing even extremely viscous fluids.
