BYK Cone and Plate (CAP) Viscometers

Meets industry standards: ASTM D4287, ISO 2884, BS 3900

The versatility of the CAP 1000+ and CAP 2000+ makes these instruments a practical tool for any QC or R&D lab requiring quick and easy testing of materials, regardless of application, at high shear rates.

CAP 1000+

  • Two available speeds to comply with all paint industry standards worldwide (750 and 900 rpms), optional speed of 400 rpm upon request.
CAP 2000+
  • Variable speed instrument with a speed range of 5 to 1,000 rpm (1 rpm increments) that allows for varying shear rates from 10 to 13,300 sec-1
  • Bi-directional RS-232 interface that allows for PC control with the optional CAPCALC 32 software
CAP 1000+

Features

top
  • Provides for viscosity measurements at high shear rates
  • LCD display of viscosity in Poise or Pascal-seconds
  • Uses less than 2 ml of sample to avoid excess cleaning and material costs
  • Automatic viscosity range calibration and cone gap positioning make the viscometer easy to use
  • Set the viscometer to take a reading at different timed intervals to ensure accuracy of results with thixotropic fluids

  • Eliminates operator error when recording data
  • Provides instantaneous viscosity flow curves (rheograms) on easy-to-read graphs
  • Creates a permanent record of each test
  • Records up to 1000 data points per test
  • Comparison data sets can be manually entered
  • Saved data in Brookfield (text), Lotus 1-2-3, or Excel®
  • Up to 6 data sets may be plotted simultaneously
  • 12 Plot Types:
    • % FSR vs. RPM, Shear Rate, Time, Temperature
    • Viscosity vs. RPM, Shear Rate, Time, Temp
    • Shear Stress vs. RPM, Shear Rate, Time, Temp

The 1/23 CAPs are for lower shear applications such as automotive clear coats and base coats. Most methods are single point pass/fail criteria using No. 10 spindle at 100 rpm; a shear rate of 500 1/sec and measurement range from 22 - 220 cP is achieved.
There are two instruments available: 1000+L version with a fixed speed of 100 rpms, 2000+L version with a speed range from 5 - 1000 rpms, The multiple speed selection provides more flexibility to modify test procedures. Comes complete with: 1/23 Cone & Plate viscometer, No. 10 spindle, Operation manual
