Bostwick Consistometer

  • Precise graduations at 0.5 cm intervals
  • Provides a consistent platform for test
  • 316 food grade stainless steel construction

The Consistometer is a low cost, durable, instrument for accurately checking laboratory or production samples against consistency, viscosity or flow rate standards.

It uses little bench space and is yet probably the simplest, most accurate method of conducting a variety of flow associated tests. It is already widely used in the chemical, paint, cosmetic and food processing industries. 

The consistometer provides a single parameter for a variety of flow tests which can be carried out over any period under as near identical conditions as possible.

The Consistometer or Bostwick Consistometer is manufactured from stainless steel engraved with a series of precise graduations at 0.5 cm intervals.

To ensure accurate reproducibility, the instrument is levelled using the adjustment screws and spirit level.
