Experience the power of "Two"

Think about all the possibilities – how would it be if you had a dual-cell viscometer and could finish two measurements in one run? With SVM 4001 this has now become reality.

You can measure the kinematic viscosity of your lubricant in the first cell at 40 °C, while the second cell measures your sample at 100 °C at the same time. The instrument automatically calculates the viscosity index (VI) compliant with ASTM D2270 and reports it on the screen in real-time.

Or you can measure kinematic viscosity of your lube oil at 40 °C, while measuring its density simultaneously at 15 °C, avoiding a separate measurement and saving your valuable time.

Experience the incomparable benefits of two measuring cells in one powerful instrument.

Features of Kinematic viscometer: SVM 4001

Twice the cell – twice the benefit

Save time, effort, and sample: With its double-cell design, SVM 4001 is the ultimate standardized solution for the determination of lubricant viscosity and viscosity index from a sample volume as low as 2.5 mL. SVM 4001 also enables you to measure kinematic viscosity and density simultaneously at any two different temperatures between 15 °C and 100 °C – all in one instrument.

Go for multi-talent

SVM 4001 opens up a new world: it doesn’t just measure viscosity but also multiple parameters, complying with the following standards:

  • Viscosity index (VI) (ASTM D2270)
  • Kinematic viscosity (ASTM D7042, EN 16896, DIN 51659-2)
  • Density (EN ISO 12185, ASTM D4052, IP 365)
  • Dynamic viscosity (ASTM D7042)
  • API grades (ISO 91, API 2540, ASTM D1250, IP 200)

Flexibility right at your fingertips

Tired of looking for a capillary suitable for your sample’s viscosity? There’s no need for that anymore. With SVM 4001 you have the flexibility you need, as each of the two measuring cells covers the entire measuring range. This means that you can measure a huge variety of samples, from base oils and additives to lube blends and used oil, without changing the cell. This single viscometer is all you need for your viscosity and viscosity index measurements.

Reduced costs, increased output

SVM 4001 scores points for its performance and sustainability, since it requires only small amounts of solvent (min. 2.5 mL) for cleaning, which lowers solvent and disposal costs. Thanks to its Peltier temperature control, no bath or external cooling is required, saving energy, money, and lab space. A variety of sample changers can be connected to improve your productivity, whether at the filling line or in the QC lab, giving you time to perform other important tasks.

Simplify your work through unbeatable ease of operation

From the initial start-up to the maintenance of the instruments, SVM 4001 is outstandingly easy to operate. The instrument is already factory-adjusted when it reaches you and is ready for immediate use – all you have to do is to inject your sample and push the Start button. Thanks to the new patented motor concept, access to the measuring cells is tool-free. The robust metal cells mean that SVM 4001 is safe to handle without any risk of glass breakage. The state-of-the-art design of the instrument offers a fully customizable user interface showing you exactly the results and parameters you need. SVM 4001 is a stand-alone instrument and all calculations are performed automatically by the integrated PC.
