Instructions: (for the service taker)

  • The researcher must ensure that 2000 µL of sample is to be addedto the sample cup for CPA41Z spindle and 500 µL of the sample for CPA51Z spindle.
  • For highly viscous samples smaller spindle is used and for the less viscous ones the larger spindle is used.
  • Readings below 10% torque must not be considered as they are inaccurate. In this case change either the spindle or speed to achieve maximum accuracy.
  • The user should ensure that the substances placed under test do not release poisonous, toxic or flammable gases at the temperatures which they are subjected to during the testing.
  • Spindles are made of stainless steel. Clean with non-abrasive cloth and solvent appropriate for sample material.
