Oil & Gas

Viscosity is a key parameter across the whole oil industry.

Hydramotion viscometers are used widely for the measurement of crude oil and all its refined fractions, either as part of the refinement processes or end products. These are true on-line viscometers designed for continuous use without intervention in extremes of temperature, pressure, flow and viscosity.

Continuous monitoring provides instant feedback of fluid changes allowing real-time optimisation of the process. This drives up productivity and quality, eliminates waste and removes the need for sample-based laboratory testing.

Furthermore our HyperVisc PVT viscometer range is capable of measuring at geological temperatures and pressures. The highest performance viscometer of its type.


A Dependable Tool for Bitumen and Refinery Fuel

Residue oil’s viscosity must be carefully controlled to optimise atomisation prior to combustion. In this case, the viscometer continuously monitors the oil in real-time, providing crucial data to an automated control loop…

XL7 Prevents Polystyrene Line Failures

Hydramotion viscometers are installed at Europe’s largest oil refinery to control the viscosity of polystyrene. The instruments are used to exploit the relationship between viscosity and molecular chain length to prevent polymerisation acceleration and line blockages…

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 provided in a range of optional materials, including, Alloy C22 or C276.
