Easy Operation

Easy Operation

The assembly takes 30 seconds. It frees you from the hassle of preparation, cleaning up, and removes hesitation for measurements. Only one button to deal with. From setting up to measurements, you can do it with one hand. The state of the actual assembly is here.

Small Sample Volume

Small Sample Volume

The amount of sample required for measurement is only 15 mL or 100 mL. The time to wash the beaker is greatly reduced, too.

Disposable Containers

Measureable even with a paper cup

VISCO™ can measure using paper cups or plastic cups. It's disposable and does not require you to wash the beakers. It is safe even in the areas where glassware is restricted.

Lab to the Production Site

Compact

ATAGO's viscosity meter VISCO™ is very lightweight and compact with a height of 20 cm and a weight of 895 g. Easy to carry from the lab to the production site.

Battery Powered

Battery Powered

VISCO™ is powered by AC power supplies or batteries. The battery life is about seven hours. Easy measurements, any place and in any situation.

Incredible Cost Performance

Incredible Cost Performance

The price of VISCO™ is less than half the price of a B-type viscometer. ATAGO provides high-value, high-quality products at the right price for customers to experience it first-hand and use it a lot.

Good with Low Viscosity

Good with Low Viscosity

Low viscosity samples can be measured with VISCO™. ATAGO’s VISCO™ has an adapter for low viscosity samples.

Selection Guide

Selection Guide


The temperature controller is a lightweight, compact, and constant temperature device that does not require water circulation.

Because the viscosity is greatly affected by the temperature of the sample, it is very important to control the temperature of the sample when measuring viscosity. In general, a constant temperature water bath takes time to adjust the temperature because it circulates water. In addition, it requires a large space. It also requires preparation and maintenance such as preparing water and drying water properly after use. The VISCO Temp Controller is a lightweight and compact constant temperature device that has been developed to save the time and effort brought about by a conventional constant temperature water bath.

VISCO Temp Controller

No water required

No water required

Since the peltier is used to control the temperature, the sample can be constantly warmed without the use of water. The heavy labor is no longer necessary, no longer a need to worry about algae and mold.

Reduced Time Spent

Reduced Time Spent

Because the container where the sample is placed is made of aluminum, the heat from the peltier is transferred to the sample much more efficiently requiring a shorter time.

Lightweight and Compact

Lightweight and Compact

The total weight is about 4 kg and the temperature control unit only is merely 2.7 kg. Less than half the weight of a typical constant temperature water bath. The size is just about the size of VISCO fitting perfectly, without worrying about the workspace.

Simple Operation

Simple Operation

It is operated by two buttons. Despite the common notion that “apparatus and devices used for experiments are considered difficult without being a researcher or expert,” it is an easy to use product that anyone can use.

Uncompromised Design

Uncompromised Design

A novel and stylish design that reverses the image of such conventional viscosity measurement, It can offer not only usability but also an environment where users can comfortably measure viscosity.

Environmentally friendly

Environmentally friendly

Stress-free from loud noise or vibration and environmentally friendly because it does not use refrigerants such as fluorocarbons.



What is a Viscometer?

Viscosity TypesThere are different types viscometers that uses various measurement methods. For example, in the Japanese Industrial Standard JIS Z 8803, viscometers are classified as follow:

• Capillary viscometers        • Falling ball viscometers
• Rotational viscometers     • Vibrational viscometers


There are also other measurement methods such as viscosity cups and Line Spread Tests (LST).
ATAGO's viscosity meter VISCO™ is measured on a principle called rotational viscosity.

Principle of Rotational Viscometer

回転式の原理The rotational viscometer is one of the most common viscometers used. The structure is simple, easy to use, and the measurement range is wide and can be measured with high accuracy. When a cylindrical spindle is placed in the sample and rotated at a constant speed, the viscosity is determined by measuring the torque (shear stress) acting on the cylindrical surface. There are different types of spindles: coaxial double cylinder, single cylindrical, and cone, and plate. The cone plate type can determine the flow characteristics of non-Newtonian fluids by changing the rotational speed.

Calibration compares the true value and the value measured from the instrument. Calibration is an important task to ensure the reliability of the measurement results. Calibration is recommended when the measurement environment has changed drastically or when the measurement results are out of the norm. If you are considering routine calibration, we recommend that you decide the frequency based on the circumstance in which the instrument is used and past measurement results. ATAGO's viscometer VISCO™ provides the following standard solutions:
The standard solutions are available in various viscosity. It is recommended to calibrate with a standard solution that is close to the viscosity of samples being measured.
