Compact, high precision, tapered plug viscometer

Featured Product from CANNON Instrument Company


Ravenfield by CANNON BS/C+ HTHS Tapered Plug Viscometer
The Ravenfield® by CANNON® HTHS BS/C+ Viscometer is a compact, high precision, tapered plug viscometer that measures the high temperature, high shear viscosity of engine lubricants and other oils according to ASTM D4741, CEC L-36-A-90 and IP 370 as specified by SAE J300 and ACEA. The HTHS BS/C+ Tapered Plug Viscometer also correlates to ASTM D4683 with no bias and is capable of testing across a wide range of temperatures and shear rates.

Common Applications

  • Engine lubricants
  • Pre-filtered used oils
