Specific Gravity Cups used to determine the specific weight per unit volume of a liquid at a given temperature. These specific gravity cups are precision machined to a known internal volume. The pycnometer is filled with the sample to be measured, capped and weighed using precision balances. The sample mass at a known temperature can then be used to calculate its density. Made from stainless steel or aluminium (dependant on model ordered), the cup is used for determining the specific weight of paints and similar products. A tolerance of 0.1% is guaranteed. Testing is carried out in accordance with ISO at 23±2°C. This gravity cup consists of a cylindrical container and cover with a hole to allow any excess Paint (or Ink) to be removed when the cup cover is fitted tightly. This also ensures that no air bubbles are being trapped.
