Visgage© Data Sheet

Descarga hoja de datos del producto


The Visgage© checks oil viscosity on-site without thermometers or stopwatches. It is widely used to check any oil from light spindle oils to heavy gear oils. Regular users of this instrument include nearly every type of industry in the world, e.g., railroads, truck and bus lines, marine fleets, power plants, laboratories and oil distributors. Quality control can be assured when the Visgage© is used regularly to verify oil viscosity.

The Visgage© operates on the principle of comparing the viscosity of a sample of oil with an oil of known viscosity. The viscosity reading is determined at room temperate and reported directly in Centistokes at 40 degrees Celsius. No calculations are necessary. With proper care and experience, operators can obtain an accuracy of 95% or better.

Features, Advantages & Benefits:

The Visgage© is more widely used throughout the world than any other type of viscometer, for two very good reasons:

  • Accuracy and ease of operation. Operators in the field can consistently test faster than commercial laboratories.
  • The Visgage© is an ideal tool for obtaining immediate viscosity test results in the field.


Field testing of lubricants to determine:

  • Whether the right oil viscosity is being used.
  • If oxidation has increased viscosity to unacceptable levels.
  • If fuel dilution has decreased to unacceptable levels.
  • If an oil of the wrong viscosity has been added to the system.


The Visgage© is included with the Mobil Serv℠ Field Industrial Oil Analysis Kit DS-K1R.
