Product Description The Cannon CT-500 bath maintains accurate temperature control of ± 0.01°C within the range of 20°C to 100°C, providing the temperature sensitivity required by ASTM D445 for kinematic viscosity measurements with glass capillary viscometers.
Two electric heating elements inside the bath rapidly heat the medium to any desired temperature within the range. A cooling coil, when connected to tap water or a cooling system, permits operation below or slightly above ambient temperature. A special selector switch on the front panel facilitates rapid setting of ten popular temperatures for kinematic viscosity determinations. Temperatures which may be selected with this switch are 20, 25, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, and 100°C. After the switch has been set, the bath will equilibrate to within a fraction of one degree of the desired temperature. A fine tuning control then allows temperature adjustment to within ± 0.01°C of the target temperature. By switching to the "variable" setting on the front panel, any temperature within the operating range can be obtained. A solid-state control circuit provides proportional control of temperature. A motor-driven stirrer ensures a uniform temperature throughout the bath. The CT-500 bath chamber is a cylindrical clear glass vessel 305 mm (12 inches) in diameter and 305 mm (12 inches) high. A Teflon-coated stainless steel baffle located in the center of the bath provides a plain reflective background to aid in viewing instruments. The top cover contains seven round holes 51 mm (2 inches) in diameter for insertion of viscometer holders, allowing up to seven viscosity measurements to be made simultaneously. Covers are supplied for capping unused holes. Two additional holes 10 mm (p-inch) in diameter, are provided for thermometers. All wetted parts are made of stainless steel, glass, or Teflon. The frame is fabricated from heavy aluminum and coated with a corrosion-resistant epoxy finish.
Capacity CT-500: 17 L (4.5 gal)
Viscometer tubes are additional cost
