SB+2 | Scanning Brookfield Plus Two​

ASTM D2500 | Cloud Point


Chinese GB-11145

Chinese SH/T0732



The two most recognized applications of the SB+2 are the Scanning Brookfield Technique (ASTM D5133 & D7110) and the Brookfield Viscosity Test (ASTM D2983).  The use of the patented SimAir™ Test Cell allows the SB+2 to be held at a constant temperature during the 16-hour soak period of the Brookfield D2983 test. This provides greater versatility, increased sample through-put and improved precision over air baths and programmable liquid baths.


The versatility of the SB+2 bath stems from its broad cooling range, both manual and automatic temperature control, the incorporation of a viewing window and five easily replaceable bath covers (Insert Modules). The bath now serves as a cooling source for seven different low-temperature test methods -- making it a cost effective instrument for demanding lab schedules.


Features & Benefits

  • Versatile liquid bath for analyzing lubricants and fluids meeting numerous low temperature test methods.
  • Easily replaceable Insert Module for each test.
  • Programmable & Manual bath temperature controls.
  • Self-contained refrigeration system capable of cooling to -70°C.
  • Generates the Gelation Index & Gelation Index Temperature according to ASTM D5133 and D7110 methods.
  • Designed for use with patented SimAir™ Test Cells for Brookfield D2983 testing.
  • Ideal for low-temperature work with fresh, sooted, or highly oxidized oils, ATFs, and fuels.
