Chemical Industry

The wide range of Hydramotion viscosity sensor types and specification options ensures there is a viscometer to suit any chemical processing application. These are true in-line workhorse viscometers designed for continuous use without intervention in extremes of temperature (-150 to over 400 degrees Celsius), pressure, flow and viscosity range.

High accuracy and repeatability is rigorously maintained regardless of process conditions or plant noise. Instruments are available for every possible installation with any process fitting. All viscometers carry IS Safety Certifications and are available in a range of optional materials such as nickel alloys, with a choice of surface finishes like fluoropolymer, for example.


Real-Time Viscosity Control of Silicone Rubber with XL7

XL7 viscometers are installed on both production lines, either directly in the kettle or in the circulating pipelines. The installation directly into the tank allows for real-time tracking of the silicone’s viscosity as the polymerisation reaction progresses. Viscosity is an important parameter as it is directly related to the degree of polymerisation, or molecular weight….

XL5 Meets Strict Viscosity Requirements for PU Dispersion in DMAc

A manufacturer working with a high-quality polyurethane dispersion in dimethylacetamide (DMAc) encountered a challenge in maintaining their dispersion’s viscosity according to stringent quality standards. During production, viscosity is considered the primary specification. By diluting the dispersion until the viscosity target is met, the team can consistently reduce variation in the dispersion, which is their main objective…
