King BLB | Liquid Bath

Low-Temperature Viscosity

Test Methods 

  • ASTM D2983
  • ASTM D97
  • ASTM D2500
  • ASTM D5853
  • IP 267
  • DIN 51398

Models Available

  • BLB 701
  • BLB 702
  • SimAir® | DIN Liquid Bath

The King BLB measures low-temperature viscosity of ATF’s, gear oils and hydraulic oils, and other fluid lubricants using a patented SimAir® technique that allows the use of a small, less costly, constant temperature liquid bath. The only technique available that permits independent sample analyses eliminates the need for batch sample testing.

The BLB is a widely used low-temperature test for a variety of industry specifications.

  • Unique Tannas SimAir® Test Cells provide proper sample temperature control for accurate, precise results and permits each test cell to operate independently, increasing productivity.
  • Features a 12-position carousel with 12 independent sample cells
  • BLB models: Capable of measuring a broad temperature range of +30°C to –70°C (BLB702) and +30°C to –40°C (BLB 701).
  • SimAir®/DIN model: Capable of measuring a broad temperature range of +30°C to –55°C.
  • Fully self-contained internal hermetic refrigeration system – no external refrigeration units or controllers needed.
  • Digital temperature controller keeps bath temperature within +/- 0.1°C.
  • Small benchtop footprint with large illuminated viewing window.
  • Includes top mount for viscometer (viscometer available separately).
  • The internal air system provides a continuous blanket of dry air over samples to eliminate moisture buildup.
  • Safety features include a high-pressure cutout, high-temperature limits, and low-level shutdown.
  • CE Mark

The patented SimAir® Test Cells utilize a unique air-gap between the test sample and the liquid bath medium to simulate the original air bath method.

The BLB Test Cell Carousel accommodates twelve (12) samples, allows convenient alignment of each cell to the appropriate test position, and holds both SimAir® and DIN glassware.

A user-friendly touchscreen viscometer facilitates D2983 and DIN 51398 testing.
