XL7 high temperature viscometer
Cool heads, hot toes. Continuously measuring viscosity at high temperature requires a special breed of viscometer. The XL7-HT2 model is capable of direct process viscosity measurement at up to 450°C (842°F) without the need for cooling jackets or ancillary pipework.
Special transducers are available for even higher temperatures.
We like to let the sensor get hot. Nothing affects viscosity like temperature, so the measurement must take place at the actual fluid temperature. Try and cool the sensor and you’ll cool the fluid, leading to large errors. The thermally efficient design of these viscometers allows the sensor to take the full heat of the process whilst keeping the electronics comfortably cool. The result is unparalleled accuracy even at the highest process temperatures, with no messy cooling system to bother about.
