This system is the miniature variant of the process monitoring & control solution by Rheonics. It consists of an industrial embedded PC mounted inside a stainless-steel cabinet with integrated 10.4” display and touch screen. The industrial PC runs a control application which measures viscosity, density using Rheonics inline sensors and optional pH/Level by external third-party sensors. The process is controlled by up to two electrical and two pneumatic outputs which can control valves/pumps/mixers/chillers, etc.
Industrial communication options include an Ethernet connection, WiFi and USB. Additional user interface elements include a buzzer + alarm light and 4 buttons including LEDs.
Table shows all options. However, the actual system will only contain the options that were selected during ordering.

SRV Viscometer & the integrated RPS-A system
Achieve best in class product quality, dramatically reduce setup time and optimise use of materials. Improve productivity and efficiency through complete automation of viscosity control of your process fluid.
• Robust, maintenance free viscosity sensor eliminates need for re-calibration
• Agile viscosity controller reduces viscosity variation to less than 1% over entire print run regardless of length
• One-click, intuitive graphical interface touch-screen
• Tighter, more accurate viscosity control
You can expect the sensor on every station to measure and perform equally on any other station. The Rheonics SRV sensor is factory calibrated and traceable to NIST standards.
- Small Form Factor – Fits in your palm while more robust than any other inline viscometers!
- All 316L stainless steel wetted parts – Hermetically sealed, metal-metal process sealing – no elastomer
- Repeatable, Reproducible – Newtonian, non-Newtonian, Single and Multi-phase fluids
- Wide viscosity range – Air to 50,000+ cP
- Built-in fluid temperature measurement – Excellent thermal compensation to achieve consistency over the years
- No re-calibration needed – ever!
