The basic principles behind viscometers are derived from the fact that every material has a certain resistance to flow. When you look at a liquid, you can observe how it flows with a certain degree of resistance. For this reason, viscometers are used to measure flow resistance. This property is critical in production processes; if a substance is too viscous, it will move with difficulty through a pipe.

When using a viscometer to measure the viscosity of a liquid, it is necessary to calibrate the instruments according to the peculiarity of each liquid. This is done by placing the viscometer in the liquid to be measured and allowing it to stand for a period of time before recording the results. This calibration is necessary to ensure the accuracy of the viscometer results.

Viscometer in operation

A viscometer is a mechanical measuring device used to measure viscosity, the resistance of a fluid to flow; these devices are often used to evaluate the state of pathological anatomy, meaning that it is used to analyze the resistance of body tissue to dilate.

The fundamental concept behind the use of a viscometer for pathological anatomy evaluation is to determine whether tissue behaves as a fluid would, considering its molecular structure; viscometers can be used for a variety of pathological medicine applications.
