SVM 3000

The SVM 3000 Stabinger Viscometer measures the dynamic viscosity and density of oils and fuels according to ASTM D7042. From this result, the viscometer automatically calculates the kinematic viscosity and delivers measurement results which comply with ISO 3104 or ASTM D445.

Measuring range:
0.2 mPa.s to 20,000 mPa.s

0.65 g/cm3 to 3 g/cm3
-56 °C to 105 °C

Reproducibility: 0.35 %

Repeatability: 0.1 %

Minimum sample volume: 2.5 mL

Optionally combined with:
Abbemat refractometers

Benefits of SVM 3000 at Distillate fuel oil

The viscosity of oil is a measure of its resistance to flow. This is a highly significant parameter of fuel oil, since it indicates both the relative ease with which the oil can be pumped as well as the ease of atomization. Density alone is of little significance as an indication of the burning characteristics of fuel oil. Used in conjunction with other properties, it is of value in mass-volume relationships and for the specific energy of oil.

SVM 3000 is a good solution for determining kinematic viscosity, the API number and density, which are the most important specifications for fuel oil. SVM 3000 meets the requirements of ASTM D7042.
