The Bostwick Consistometer is the preferred choice for measuring consistency and flow rate in a variety of products. You can use "Bostwick" on any viscous material such as sauces, salad dressings, paints, chemicals or cosmetics. The normal way to use the Consistometer is to measure the distance a sample flows in a given time interval.
The Bostwick is a long trough with 0.5 cm graduations along the bottom. The trough is separated near one end by a spring loaded gate. This forms a chamber where the sample is loaded. The Bostwick also complies with the procedures established in Mill Spec R81294D and ASTM F1080-93. The Bostwick Consistometer is built for ease of operation and heavy duty use. The unit is made from stainless steel which resists corrosion. To clean it after a test, simply wash it out with water.
