Other Ways to
Measure Viscosity

If a viscometer is not available an accurate method of determining the fluid viscosity is to run the product in a pilot circuit, recording pressure drop through a linear length of line, pipe I.D., and flow rate. From this data the actual viscosity of a Non-Newtonian fluid can be determined by using the friction table backwards.



Pressure Drop = 1 psi/ft
