The DVNext is an easy-to-use, stand-alone instrument for measuring viscosity and yield stress.
It's available in a Standard version and a 21 CFR Part 11 Compliant version.
Each of Brookfield's laboratory Viscometers/Rheometers is supplied with an internal spring used to calculate the viscosity of a material.
These springs have different measuring capabilities:
- LV is for low viscosity materials and can measure the thinnest materials. Typical examples include inks, oils, and solvents.
- RV is for medium viscosity materials than those measured with an LV torque. Typical examples include creams, food, and paints.
- HA is for higher viscosity materials than those measured with an RV torque. Typical examples include gels, chocolate, and epoxies.
- HB is for even higher viscosity materials than those measured with an HA torque spring. Typical examples include asphalt, caulking compounds, and molasses.
