Brand: Sheen Instruments – UK
- The cups are designed for use in the Determination of Density of liquids in respect of National Standards B.S. 3900 part A19 -1998, ISO 2811 -1:1997, DIN 53217 and ASTM 1475.
- Three sizes are offered; 50cc, 100cc and 83.3cc (US gallon), available in both high strength aluminium or stainless steel. To facilitate the use of two-pan laboratory balances counterpoise tare weights can be supplied to order.
- The manufacturing tolerance on the closed volume is ± 0.2% over the range of 15° – 25° Centigrade.
- Method of Use
1./ Determine the weight of a clean cup in grams. As an alternative, the cup may be
supplied with an accurate tare weight for use with two-pan laboratory balances.
2./ Remove cover and fill within 2mm of brim with the material to be tested.
3./ Carefully replace cover so that air and excess material is expelled through vent.
4./ Wipe over cover to remove surplus and reweigh. By subtracting the original weight
of the cup the weight of the contents will be found. If a tare weight was used at the
start the balance will show the weight of the contents.
5./ Clean thoroughly immediately after use.
