The accreditation confirms that the lab can perform hydrocarbon calibrations on ultrasonic and other type flow meters from 4-24 inches in size, using up to three different oils and covering a viscosity range from 1.5-200 centistokes. The laboratory is unique in that it has a heat exchange system that allows operating temperature to be controlled and stabilized.

Polybutenes are viscous, clear, nondrying, liquid polymers that are available in viscosities ranging from about 27 centistokes (cst) at 38 [degrees] C, to 4400 cst at 99 [degrees] C, and in number average molecular weights ranging from 370 to 2300.
Dimethyl-polysiloxane fluids with viscosities of 12,500 and 30,000 centistokes reportedly give the greatest effectiveness when added to most thermoplastics, including nylons and styrenics.
SO is available in several viscosities, but 1000 and 5000 centistokes are used clinically.
Results: Oils of same centistokes manufactured by different manufacturers behaved differently in terms of their flowability and rates of emptying.

At the end of the surgery, perfluorocarbon gas ([C.sub.3][F.sub.8] or [C.sub.2][F.sub.6], Huajieshi Medical Facility Limited Company, Shanghai, YZB 3394-2011) or silicone oil (Bausch & Lomb, 5000 centistokes) was injected into the vitreous cavity, followed by intraocular lens (IOL) implantation, if needed.
The model can measure liquids with a viscosity of up to 10 centistokes. McMillan Co., P.O.
