Lovis Rolling Ball Viscometer

Lovis 200 450x300

Lovis 2000 M/ME is a rolling-ball viscometer which measures the rolling time of a ball through transparent and opaque liquids based on Hoeppler's falling ball principle. The instrument is mainly used for viscosity measurements of low viscous liquids for R&D applications, in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries. A measurement with Lovis 2000 M/ME can yield dynamic viscosity, intrinsic viscosity, molar mass of a polymer and more.

For R&D

  • Small sample amount (starting from 100 μL)
  • Sample recovery
  • Wide temperature range (-30 °C to 100 °C /-22 °F to 212 °F)
  • Wide viscosity range (0.3 mPa.s to 10,000 mPa.s)
  • High accuracy
  • Variable inclination angle for testing shear-dependent flow behavior

For pharmaceutical and medical labs

  • Included in US and European Pharmacopoeia
  • Pharma qualification packages available
  • Optional modular combination with Anton Paar instruments for measuring density, refractive index, turbidity and pH value
  • Flow-through filling for large sample throughput

For the chemical industry

  • Hermetically closed system for volatile or toxic samples
  • High chemical resistance (borosilicate glass or PCTFE)
  • Special polymer measuring and evaluation features
  • Automatic filling using autosampler
  • Testing of opaque samples
