Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
    • n viscosimeter The viscosity is determined by the rate of efflux through a small orifice. In one form of this apparatus the oil to be tested is placed in an inner vessel, the cover of which is lined with a thick pad of non-conducting material. It is kept at a temperature of 50° C. by means of a water-jacketand the coil is heated by a spirit-lamp. The volume of oil which flows through a central orifice, in the bottom of the inner vessel, in a given time, indicates the degree of viscosily.
    • n viscosimeter An apparatus for measuring the viscosity of various liquids, as oils. Also viscometer.
