The Visibility bath is very easy to operate. Using the touchpad on the control unit, the set-point is keyed in. The set-point can be programmed and calibrated to two decimal places. A thermometer holder for the precision thermometer is built in. Safety features include a low liquid level switch, an upper-temperature limit warning, a low-temperature limit warning, and a high-temperature cut-out device.
The bath construction affords full visibility of up to 4 viscometers, which can be placed in the bath simultaneously.
An advantage of the single-walled design is that the Visibility Bath displays excellent temperature stability at 40 degrees C without the use of an external chiller. This makes the Visibility Bath an excellent choice for testing the Kinematic Viscosity of Biodiesel for product specification.
Built-in cooling coil
The Visibility bath can be used from 15 to 60°C and is supplied with a built-in cooling coil. Operation at temperatures below or near ambient requires an external source of chilling. This is provided by a cool liquid, which is passed through the cooling coil. A low-cost recirculating chiller is available from PSL to provide the cooling required. The RHEOTEK TLC-1 Chiller is specially designed for operating with the TCB-7MkII bath.
All Visibility baths are supplied with a certificate of temperature stability and uniformity. Excellent circulation technology provides superior uniformity of temperature in the Visibility Bath.
