Viscometers for the Pharmaceutical Industry from PCE Instruments

PCE Instruments

Viscometers are devices aimed at the determination of the viscosity of different liquids. Viscometers are commonly used in laboratories, but also in process regulation and control. To detect viscosity there are several types of viscometers. They are diverse in their functional principle. Today, there are a lot of viscometers on the market in several designs and for several measuring tasks. Some are made for use at a fixed place and some for mobile measurement.
