The TV16000 is specially designed for tests that require ultra precise temperature control, or processes that need to be followed visually. The bath conforms to ASTM D445: Standard Test Method for Kinematic Viscosity of Transparent and Opaque Liquids and the D2162: primary Basic Calibration of Master Viscometers and Viscosity Oil Standards. Other applications are thermometer and sensor calibration or density measurement.
The stainless steel construction ensures exceptionally stable temperatures which further is improved by an ingenious stirring mechanism with baffle plates. All wetted parts are made of stainless steel and PTFE. This provides resistance against all usual bath fluids. The bath is fitted with four wheels, two of them having
brakes. The cover of the bath is on request. There's a wide range of possibilities such as round 51 mm holes, 61 mm holes, the use of a leveling platform or other square or round holes with other dimensions. A bath overflow outlet protects against overflow when bath fluid expands or raises due to submersion of parts
A vane type stirrer with maintenance free bearings moves the bath fluid past a special heater ensuring optimal control temperature and ensuring excellent uniformity.
Span lies from 10°C up to + 60° (50°F / 140°F).
The bath conforms to CE-regulation. Further the bath is equipped with a mechanical over temperature device which trips when in case of malfunction the bath exceeds the preset maximum temperature. This feature guarantees safe around the clock operation.
The system overall accuracy is within ±0.005°K based on measurement with water as bath fluid. This value is a min/max recorded over 1hr. Standard deviation is better than +/-0.002°C under these conditions.
After the bath has stabilized the set point may be more accurately adjusted in the range of 5.00° to + 5.00°, if necessary. The temperature can be set in 0.01°C resolution. A special offset offers +/-0.005° resulting in setting of the set point temperature in ±0.005°C
For proper cooling performance ambient temperature needs to be within the range of 18 .. 23°C.
