Unveiling the Working Principles of Brookfield Viscosity Instruments

View Products


At the heart of every Brookfield viscosity instrument lies a meticulously engineered system designed to measure the viscosity of liquids and semi-solid materials with unparalleled accuracy. 

These instruments operate on the principles of rotational viscometry, utilizing the torque required to rotate a spindle within a sample substance.

How does a viscosity measurement work ?

Sample Immersion

The Brookfield instrument submerges a spindle or probe into the sample. The geometry of the spindle and the nature of the material determine the viscosity measurement range.

The spindle is gently rotated within the sample. The viscosity of the material creates resistance to this rotation, which is measured in terms of torque.

Data Acquisition

Precise sensors continuously monitor the torque and rotational speed. The instrument then calculates the viscosity value in real-time.

Results Display

The viscosity measurement is displayed on a user-friendly interface, providing immediate insights into the sample's flow properties.
