  • Buying Incubator and Viscometer, pls help..

    Posted by Thota on July 22, 2020 at 1:05 pm

    I am setting up a small manufacturing space for cosmetics, 

    I got below specifications for low cost equipment, 

    Does temp variation of +/- 2 c work or should I go for expensive ones with +/- 0.5 c??

    Is 20-200000 maps 
    4 standard spindels
    0.3 - 6 speed
    no of speed 8 

    Pls let me know if above is good enough (we make gel cremes to rich creams)?
    Brookefield seems very expensive. 

    Thank You!

    You may want to avail the used market for that incubator - Equipnet has plenty at all price ranges - see link below. As for viscometers, Brookfields are the known Standard, so look around for a used one, preferably an RV with helipath for those creams. The older models with analog meters never die. Built to last back when “Made in America” meant something.
