CAV 4.1 Single Bath Kinematic Viscometer

CAV 4.1 Single Bath Kinematic Viscometer

CAV 4.1 Single Bath Kinematic Viscometer

The CANNON CAV 4.1 is a fully-automated, single bath, benchtop kinematic viscometer with two 14-position sample handlers for unattended ASTM D445/446 testing. Each of the two Ubbelohde-style tubes covers a 100-fold viscosity range at values between 0.5 mm2/s (cSt) and 10,000 mm2/s (cSt) from 40 °C to 150 °C (down to 20 °C requires TE cooling option). The CAV 4.1 replaces the older trusted CAV-2100 model.

The CAV 4.1 replaces CANNON's trusted, obsolete CAV-2100 viscometer.

Conforms to ASTM D445/446. Common applications include Formulated oil analysis, Hydraulic oil analysis, Additive analysis, Marine fuel testing, Base stock analysis, Light and heavy fuel testing, Waxes/paraffin, Crude oil testing, Glycols/polyols.

Features & Beneits :

D445 precision in a modern, dependable design

  • Standard temperature range: 40 °C to 150 °C (down to 20 °C with optional, integral TE bath cooler)
  • Viscosity range: 0.5 mm2/s (cSt) to 10,000 mm2/s (cSt)* in 100-fold increments (easily covering the range of five separate manual glass viscometers)
  • Two fully accessible 14-position sample handlers ensure reliable, unattended processing of up to 24 determinations per hour

Compact & self-contained with flexible configuration

  • 35% smaller footprint compared to the CAV-2000 series conserves lab space, with simple out-of-the-box installation
  • VISCPRO? PC software enables programming of user-defined test methods, and permits one PC to manage and control up to four instruments
  • View, print, save and export user-configurable reports

Reduced consumable costs

  • ASTM D446/ISO 3105 Ubbelohde-style tubes reduce solvent usage and disposal costs by 50% over larger Atlantic-style tubes
  • Automated vial washing and drying enables reuse and reduces vial consumption

Simplified maintenance & test versatility

  • Modular chassis design for easy maintenance access
  • Operators can physically replace tubes in minutes, eliminating the need for related service calls
  • Single-point temperature calibration maximizes flexibility and avoids tube recalibration costs
