ABOUT THE NORCROSS SHELL CUP VISCOMETER

The Shell Cup is a simple, reliable device for measuring the viscosity of a wide range of fluids. Originally developed for use with printing inks, it has found widespread applications as diverse as fuel oil and industrial finishes for calibrating other viscosity sensors as well as for primary measurements. The cup was developed by Shell Development Company and is marketed by Norcross Corporation.

Viscosity Measurement with The Shell Cup The conversion table indicates the useful range for each size. The measurement is accomplished as follows: 1. Submerge the cup in the fluid for approximately 30 seconds to allow the cup to come to sample temperature. The sample must be representative thoroughly stirred for example, and at a known, preferably standard temperature. 2. Lift the cup vertically out of the fluid, starting the stop-watch as the cup breaks the surface. 3. Record the time required for the cup to empty, stopping the watch when the stream breaks. 4. Read the viscosity from the appropriate conversion charts or calibration drawings. Email us for rmore information.

ABOUT PROCESS VISCOSITY MEASUREMENT AND CONTROL


NORCROSS has been measuring the viscosity of numerous different processes for over 60 years. As shown on the front of this conversion table, we have sensors for measuring viscosity in open tanks, closed tanks, pressurized tanks and inside pipe lines. We can measure viscosity at different pressures, flows, temperatures and viscosity ranges. The VISC6000 is a multiple station control system. The MP2000 is a single station controller/transmitter and the MP2500 a single station controller. VISC6000 Touch Screen PLC

ABOUT NORCROSS SENSITIVITY AND ACCURACY


The 24hr circular chart, shown here, is an actual recording obtained with NORCROSS Viscometer. This recording starts with boiling water 212F/ 100C, which is then allowed to cool. The viscosity was recorded every three minutes during the cooling period. A few measured temperatures, together with corresponding centipoise viscosities, obtained from tables published by the Bureau of Standards, are shown. This chart illustrates the outstanding sensitivity of the NORCROSS Falling Piston Viscometer. This sensitivity, which only the NORCROSS Process Viscometer can produce, combined with the simplicity and ruggedness of all NORCROSS units, create a versatile and long lasting viscosity sensor/system. NORCROSS Viscosity Sensors and/or Viscosity Control Systems are designed to provide years of reliable operation.

Note 4

Notes: Note 1: This data is based upon a table from Worthington Pump, 1956 which was based upon original test data no longer available. Not all Zahn Cups match this data.

Note 2: This data is based upon original mechanical design of Shell Chemical. Equations in ASTM 4212 do not match actual values, as they were based upon prior data plots that are no longer available and do not match the actual cups.

Note 3: The 2 1/2 and 3 1/2 Shell Cup were introduced by Norcross in the 1970s to provide additional viscosity range coverage. Note 4: Typical piston size recommended for use in the Model M8BO process viscometer ( with a length code C - other lengths may require

different pistons ) - Contact Norcross for information. Note 5: Data based on S.G. =1.0 Centipoise = Centistokes X S.G.
