Viscosity & Flashpoint Standards
Since 1938 CANNON Instrument Company has been a leader in viscosity measurement. We provide a broad range of viscosity standards and flash point reference materials to customers across various industries. Our standards calibrate and verify the performance of glass capillary viscometers, automated kinematic viscometers, rotational viscometers, falling ball viscometers, cup viscometers, tapered bearing simulator viscometers and flash point testers.

Quality/Traceability
Use of high quality standards and reference materials ensures test reliability and accuracy.This is why the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) delegated responsibility to CANNON for U.S. national standards for certified liquid viscosity reference standards in 2003.

All CANNON viscosity standards are traceable to a NIST calibration and prepared in our ISO 9001-registered, A2LA-accredited laboratory. CANNON Instrument Company holds ISO 17025 and Guide 34 accreditation (certificates 1262.01 and 1262.02) from A2LA for competency in manufacture and certification of reference materials. ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation further demonstrates our technical competence in calibration including the determination of kinematic and dynamic viscosity of standards as well as viscosity certification of customer samples. CANNON performs calibrations using the master viscometer procedures detailed in ASTM D2162.  . For additional details see Quality Certifications.
