HELISTAND SetThe motorized IKA HELISTAND allows you to measure the viscosity of highly viscous samples with a high level of reliability. It moves the mounted viscometer and its rotating body slowly and uniformly up and down in the sample.
Highly viscous samples such as creams, pastes, paints and gelatin cause a static viscometer to run empty. These substances are so viscous that they are forced to the edge by the rotational movements. An air channel is created around the rotating body, which is why the acting torque is then no longer meaningful. The IKA HELISTAND can prevent this by means of slow movements, up and down.
Combined with the included T-spindles for non-flowing samples, you can thus acquire meaningful viscosity measurements.
