Ball Bearing Retrofit

A ball bearing retrofit provides a more durable suspension system which can result in less down time.
A more durable ball bearing suspension system can be purchased at the time of order as an option for new viscometers and rheometers and as a retrofit to existing instruments! This new suspension replaces the traditional pivot point and jewel system and is designed for use in busy work areas where instruments experience exceptionally heavy use and/or have multiple operators.

This retrofit is available for DV1, DV2T/DV-II+Pro Viscometers, or DV3T/DV-III Ultra Rheometers, including Cone/Plate versions, in the torque ranges RV, HA, and HB. It is not available for instruments in the LV torque range.

To return your instrument for a Ball Bearing Retrofit, please download our new Repair Return Form or contact Repair Customer Service for instructions on how to return your instrument.

This service can also be performed at your facility by our Onsite Technicians for an additional On-Site Service charge.
