If calibration check fails, what should you check? 1) Is temperature of fluid equilibrated at 25C? 2) Is fluid being measured in a 600ml beaker? 3) Is instrument guard leg being used? (applies only to standard spindles with LV and RV models) Calibration fluid must be at specified temperature +/0.2C Smaller containers will increase apparent viscosity Without guardleg in place apparent viscosity will be lower than expected. Effect is greatest when using larger spindles. Surface of fluid should be in center of immersion groove. On spindles with wide groove the immersion mark is raised ring at center of groove. LV model instruments at high rpm may require as long as 45 seconds to stabilize. Bubble level must be centered.

4) Is spindle immersion mark being observed? Did spindle rotate long enough? (minimum of 5 revolutions)

5)

6) Is the viscometer level?

With no spindle attached and the motor off, does the % Verifys that good zero torque is established and bearing 7) display read 0.0? (-0.1 to +0.1 is OK) Does not apply to mechanism is in good condition. DV-E. 8) With no spindle attached and the motor running at 10rpm or 12rpm does the % display still show 0.0? Further verification that good zero torque is established and bearing mechanism is in good condition.

If calibration check still fails you may have to send your instrument to Brookfield for repair. Brookfield Engineering Laboratories, Inc 11 Commerce Blvd Middleboro, MA 02346 Tel: 508 946-6200 Fax: 508 946-6262
