A viscometer is used to determine the viscosity of a fluid and to evaluate the flow conditions of liquids having viscosities that vary with flow conditions. The viscosity of lubricating and hydraulic oils is an important criterion for determining their condition. Viscosity sensors for liquids are being created using differential pressure readings across a nozzle and a coil capillary tube, with a flow generator providing a known flow rate via each. Calculating the viscosity of the oil is a rapid way to determine oil conditions and is a key element in establishing asset readiness.
The global viscosity sensor market is expected to benefit greatly from rising demand for processed foods and beverages as well as increased industrialization. Chemical processing is one of the first industries to use viscosity sensor technology.
