  • No. You will have to send it to Brookfield for maintenance, or a trusted local service. In the end sometimes is cheaper to buy a new one considering it's old and doesn't include spindles.

    how much will they charge for maintenance ? 


    can we not just calibrate it ourselves? 
  • You can verify it by using a Brookfield certified known value standard.
    Brookfield will have to do the actual calibration. All you can do is a verification.

    Thanks, just found out they charge around $200 - 

    You'll end up spending more on maintainance than on the item if you get it second hand and need maintainance  every 6 months 

    Do you know an alternative way of measuring viscosity
