miniAV®-LT Single-Bath Sub-Zero Kinematic Viscometer

For Sub-Zero Kinematic Viscosity of Transparent and Opague Liquids
ASTM D445/D446, ASTM D1655, ASTM D2532, DEF STAN 91:91, IP 71, ISO 3104/3105

miniAV®-LT is a fully automated, single sample, benchtop viscometer for low temperature (sub-zero) viscosity testing. A Ubbelohde-style tube covers a 10-fold viscosity range for values between 1 mm²/s (cSt) and 20,000 mm²/s (cSt) from ‒20 °C to +30 °C.

Common Applications

  • Jet fuel
  • Turbine oils
  • Hydraulic fluids
  • Transformer oils

D445 precision in a compact, robust design

  • Temperature range: −20 °C to +30 °C
  • Viscosity range: up to 20,000 mm²/s (cSt) in 10-fold increments*
  • Fits in roughly the same bench-top area as an analytical balance
  • Peltier cooling is environmentally friendly and requires no pressurized coolants (an air-water heat exchanger is included)
  • A well-tested CANNON viscometer platform offers reliability and dependable support

Fully automated bench-top testing and reduced consumable costs

  • Affordable alternative to labor-intensive manual KV testing
  • Single PC manages up to 4 instruments using VISCPRO® software
  • Automated vial washing & drying reduces vial consumption and replaces manual washing

Simplified maintenance & test versatility

  • Modular bath for easy maintenance access
  • Operators physically replace tubes in minutes, eliminating the need to schedule related service calls
  • Single-point temperature calibration avoids recalibration costs and maximizes test flexibility
  • Single dual solvent input
