The viscometer is an essential tool for food industries. This tool is used to measure and control the consistency of liquids. This important tool is used in a wide variety of food industries to monitor the consistency of products, thus ensuring food quality and safety. Viscosity measurements are important, as consumers appreciate repeating the experience of a food they usually eat.
A viscometer consists of a measuring device, a probe, a viscosity meter and a measuring unit. The measuring device is designed to detect the amount and rate of flow of a liquid through a tube-shaped channel. This information is transmitted to the measuring unit, which processes the data and displays the measurement on a screen or prints the measurement.
