Ametek Brookfield introduces the new KU-3 krebs unit viscometer used in the paints and coatings industry to measure viscosity in accordance with ASTM D562.

The KU-3 offers continuous sensing and display in Krebs units, grams (weight) or centipoise. It features a magnetic spindle coupling, providing rapid attachment and quick release of the KU spindles. The instrument features a measurement range from 40 to 141 KU, 32 to 1,099 gm, and 27 to 5274 cP, accuracy to ± 1 percent of full-scale range and reproducibility to ± 0.5 percent of full-scale range. Test results can be locked in with a hold key.

The updated KU-3 has a new user interface with touch pad control and bright LED display. A flexible accordion cover protects the lab stand rod. The base plate supports the instrument and has a convenient recess for placement of a quart-size paint can. A single-piece paint can adapter accommodates pint and half-pint cans in the same recess.

An optional paste spindle is available for users who measure higher viscosity non-flowing coating materials.
