Vane Spindles

Vane spindles are typically used for paste-like materials, gels, and fluids where suspended solids migrate away from the measurement surface of standard spindles.



  • Minimal disruption of sample during spindle immersion
  • Keeps particles in suspension during testing cycle
  • Viscosity data includes complete flow curve analysis
  • Provides information on yield behaviour at low rotational speeds
  • Follows industry recommendations on length/diameter ratios for vane spindles
  • 3-piece spindle set (V-71, V-72 and V-73) for versatile range capability
  • Ideal for use with the DV2T Viscometer and the DV3T Rheometer
