ISO 3104 - Kinematic Viscosity
We perform testing by ISO 3104 to measure the kinematic viscosity of petroleum by measuring the time for a liquid to flow under gravity through a viscometer. Many petroleum products are used as lubricants, and many types of equipment depend on using a lubricant with appropriate viscosity. Knowing a product's viscosity is also important in estimating the optimum storage, handling, and operational conditions of many petroleum fuels. For these reasons, accurately determining viscosity is essential to many product specifications.
We also perform viscosity testing by ASTM D1092, ASTM D2161, ASTM D2270, ASTM D2422, ASTM D2532, ASTM D2983, ASTM D341, ASTM D445, IP 226, IP 71, and ISO 2909. These different test methods use different instruments or procedures or are used for certain sample types. Click on the test method number to learn more about each test.
