Providing Consistent Viscosity Measurement of Paints & Coatings

KU 3AMETEK Brookfield introduces the new KU-3 Krebs Unit Viscometer.  The KU-3 is widely used in the paints and coatings industry to measure viscosity in accordance with ASTM D562 and is ROHS compliant with the European requirement that goes into effect in July 2017. 

The KU-3 offers continuous sensing and display in Krebs units, grams (weight) or centipoise. It also now features a magnetic spindle coupling providing rapid attachment and quick release of the KU spindles.  The instrument features a measurement range from 40 to 141 KU, 32 to 1099 gm, and 27 to 5274 cP, accuracy to ±1% of full scale range and reproducibility to ±0.5% of full scale range. Test results can be locked in with hold key. 

The updated KU-3 has a new user interface with touch pad control and bright LED display.  A flexible accordion cover protects the lab stand rod. The base plate supports the instrument and has a convenient recess for placement of a quart-size paint can. A single-piece paint can adapter accommodates pint and half-pint cans in the same recess.

For users who measure higher viscosity non-flowing coating materials, an optional paste spindle is available for order.
