A viscometer is a device used to measure the viscosity of fluids. These measurements can be useful when designing products or improving industrial processes. These measuring devices can be found in a variety of situations, from measuring the viscosity of automotive oils to measuring the viscosity of a fluid to validating a food product as it goes through an industrial process. The most commonly used viscometer is the capillary viscometer.

Generally speaking, there are four principles used to measure the viscosity of fluids: the capillary viscometer, the rotational viscometer, the cylindrical-perpendicular viscometer and the metal film viscometer. The principle used in all these devices is the same: they measure the resistance or retardation due to the viscosity of a fluid passing through a tube.
