PVS Viscometer Basic Modules
The S 5 is the actual measuring station of the PVS system. The head of the stand-alone measuring stand S 5 is comprised of the opto-electronic meniscus detectors as well as the entire micro-processor control of the measuring process including miniature pump and valves in the head of the unit. The measuring time of the sample is determined to the millisecond using a processor-controlled infrared light sensor. The robust micro-pump for pushing the sample up into the measuring ball as well as the chemicalresistant valves in the head of the stand make reliable continuous operation possible.
