Technical data sheet
Viscosity is the resistance to the flow of liquid materials. Viscosity is measured by rotating a spindle attached to the viscometer in the liquid sample. The torque against the rotating spindle is converted to viscosity units.
Applicable to liquid samples only. Powdered flours, hydrocolloids, proteins, can be tested if the directions on the procedure to disperse the sample into a liquid are provided with the submission.
Solids and extremely high viscosity liquids cannot be tested by this method.
