Product Description


Why the brookfield-ku-2-viscometer?

This instrument is used widely for making viscosity measurements on paints/coatings in accordance with ASTM D562.


  • Continuous sensing and display in Krebs units, grams, and centipoise
  • Allows rapid sample measurement to determine required consistency
  • LED Digital Display of:
    • Krebs Units (increased resolution in 0.1 KU increments)
    • Grams (in 1 gm increments)
    • Centipoise (cP)
  • Expanded measurement range (40 to 141 KU; 32 to 1099 g; 27 to 5274 cP).
  • Accuracy to ±1% of full scale range.
  • Reproducibility to ±0.5% of full scale range.
  • Output to parallel printer for automatic test documentation.
  • Easy to use; no weights; simplifies an established test procedure.
  • Compatible with industry specification (ASTM D562).
  • Base accommodates standard pint, ½ pint, and quart cans.
  • Optional air purge allows interior of KU-2 to be pressurized with air or inert gas.
  • The optional paste spindle is suitable for use with high consistency materials such as roller mil pastes.
  • NIST traceable viscosity standards available
