SOP for Calibration of Brook Field Viscometer


Standard operating procedure to calibrate Brook field viscometer with standard viscosity solution.

1.0  OBJECTIVE

       To calibrate the equipment for reliable and accurate results.

2.0  SCOPE

       This procedure is applicable to the Brook field viscometer, installed in quality control department.

3.0  RESPONSIBILITY

3.1  Doing      : Technical Assistant
3.2  Checking : Executive /Manager

4.0  ACCOUNTABILITY

       Head of the Department

5.0  PROCEDURE

Frequency of calibration : Once in three month
5.1  Operate the instrument as per SOP
5.2  Calibrate the instrument with standard viscosity solution of 10, 100, 500, 5000 & 12,500 cps using respective spindles and record the results in Annexure-I
5.3  The performance of the instrument is satisfactory, if the measured viscosity is within the given tolerance limit, otherwise follow the S.O.P.

6.0  ABBREVIAITON

6.1  0C = Centigrade
6.2 S.O.P. = Standard operating procedure
6.3  cps = Centipoise
