Cone and Plate Viscosity Meters

The Cone and Plate Viscometers or viscosimeters are rotational viscometers that use a narrow-angled cone placed on a horizontal flat plate. The generator of the cone makes a very small angle, one to two degrees to the plate. The wedge-like space between the cone and the plate is filled with liquid to be investigated. With the cone fixed; the plate rotates with a constant angular velocity around the axis of the cone. With this system, the shear rate between the geometries is constant at any given rotational speed.
