EMS-1000S Electromagnetically Spinning Viscometer

For Viscosity of Very Small Samples and Reuse of Precious Samples

The KEM EMS-1000S for CANNON offers a new style of viscosity measurement with cutting-edge technology and user-friendly operation. It employs an electromagnetically spinning method, with a small titanium or aluminum probe sphere rotating in the sample by Lorentz force. The intuitive software calculates the viscosity. Perfect for very small samples and reuse of precious samples, suitable for anaerobic conditions and offers a short measuring time. Temperature range up to 200 °C and viscosity range of 0.1 to 100,000 mPa.s (depending on the sphere used).

Common Applications

  • Biochemistry
  • Polymers
  • Petrochemistry
  • Cosmetics

Wide temperature range

  • Temperature range of 0 °C to 200 °C
  • Stability within ± 0.1 °C
  • Heats from 25 °C to 200 °C within 10 minutes 
  • Special software program mode facilitates easy and fast studies of the temperature dependency of the viscosity
  • Automation provides an alternative to labor-intensive manual testing and reduces operator to operator variability
  • A well tested CANNON viscometer platform offers reliability and dependable support

Ideal for very small sample sizes

  • Small required sample volume of only 300 μL or 90 μL
  • Tiny samples perfect for precious substances, with the ability to reuse samples
  • Samples stay contamination-free during measurement and can be reused for other purposes
  • Low viscosity samples like blood, beverages, proteins, inks and solvents
  • High viscosity samples like polymers, resins, bitumen and heavy oils

Versatile measuring container and disposal

  • No cleaning required - measurements performed in a disposable sample container
  • No possibility of sample cross-contamination
  • Suitable for measurements under anaerobic conditions
  • Sealed sample container allows sample measurements in an inert-gas atmosphere
  • Ideal for samples needing a sterile environment, such as proteins. Autoclavable
  • Examine the shear-rate dependency of the viscosity

Inuitive and user-friendly

  • Contains and easy to use graphic user interface
  • Measurement result, sample status, device status and a graph plotting the result all display on one screen
  • Easy to compare measured data with a powerful search function and database
  • Built-in camera allows user to check the status of a sample in real time
  • Camera also allows more accurate measurement by checking and adjusting the position and rotation status of the spherical probe
  • Measuring time of only 1 second to 1 minute, depending on the viscosity of the sample
