Viscometer Calibration Service

Viscometers are instruments that measure liquid flow and viscosity (thickness). Viscometers must be accurate to detect acute changes in the properties of a substance since liquid thickness matters for the product’s end use. Uncalibrated viscometers can give inaccurate readings, affecting product quality and costing your business.

Make sure your viscometers are properly calibrated with viscometer calibration services from Garber Metrology. We ensure your instruments are working correctly and providing the reliable and repeatable results you need.


How to Calibrate a Viscometer

Viscometers measure the internal friction and molecular density of a fluid, as this factor determines how the substance flows. Since these measurements are specific to a molecular level, viscometers must be sensitive to the physical makeup of a product.

Using a viscometer frequently can wear down its components, and the instrument can accumulate debris. These factors impact the integrity of your viscometer results. If you use an uncalibrated viscometer for your testing, it can compromise the quality of your work. Your products may be recalled or wasted if they’re not the correct thickness.

Calibration is necessary if your viscometer is providing results outside of its accuracy specification. This process ensures viscometers can accurately detect viscosity changes, ensuring accurate results. We recommend scheduling a professional calibration one to two times a year.
