The EMS-1000S Viscometer is seeing much use in universities for the research and development of new materials. It has become the choice of researchers owing to many features and advantages such as the simplicity it presents for the measurement of samples with low viscosity and its ability to measure very small volumes of sample. In today's article we would like to introduce another advantage, namely, it's user-friendliness!
The most user-friendly professional viscometer on the market!
The EMS-1000S safely and consistently achieves highly accurate results regardless of operator skill and experience. In a lab setting with multiple students, you would expect a mixture of users that are proficient and not proficient with operating, measuring and cleaning the instrument, and this invites inconsistencies in an instrument's performance and the precision of results achievable. With the EMS-1000S though, you just need to transfer your sample and probe to the sample tube before setting it in the machine and commencing safe and easy measurement. The days of worrying about inconsistencies borne of operator skill are gone!
As sample is contained within the sample tube, there is no contact between it and the viscometer’s internals, ensuring safe, trouble-free measurement and eliminating both the need for cleaning and the possibility of leaving behind contaminating traces of sample that could affect the accuracy of proceeding measurements.
The temperature of the measuring cell is controlled internally and can be set between 0-200°C with a stability of ±0.1°C eliminating the need to heat or cool your sample with external equipment, another contributing factor to fool-proofing measurement.
We conducted an experiment to test the EMS-1000S's user friendliness!
To test the EMS’s user-friendliness, we assembled 3 people to each attempt the measurement of the same sample of olive oil. The 3 people included an experienced user and 2 first-timers.
Instrument settings, probe selection and conditions:
Measurement mode: Sequence mode
Probe: φ2 mm aluminum spherical probe
Measurement temperature: 25°C
Motor rotation speed: 1000rpm
Measurement time: I (1 second)
Number of repeat measurement: 5 / Operator
Measurement interval: 1 second
As you can see from the results, excellent results were achieved by the 3 users regardless of operator skill.
