The CANNON CAV 2000 Series automatic viscometers are tabletop versions of the original CANNON Automatic Viscometer (CAV), the world’s leading automatic viscometer for more than three decades, used by most major companies in the petroleum industry. CAV 2000 Series instruments are now available in two models. The CAV-2100® features a single-bath modular construction with two viscometers per bath. The CAV-2200® features a dual-bath modular construction with a single viscometer in each bath. Most other specifications are identical for both models.
Designed for unattended operation, each CAV 2000 Series viscometer provides fully automatic kinematic viscosity testing within parameters specified by ASTM D 445. The CAV 2000 Series instruments measure flow rates within ±0.001 second by electronically timing the liquid meniscus as it moves between thermistor sensors.
