Hercules DV-10 owners, please check to make sure your SRAM battery is working by checking your calibration. If your unit is not holding calibration, the battery is dead and requires replacement. Please contact Kaltec for instructions.

Kaltec Scientific was established in Kalamazoo, Michigan, in October of 1969 and is now located in Novi, Michigan. For over 50 years, paper manufacturers and supplier companies have relied on the durable Hercules Hi-Shear Viscometer to characterize flow properties of paper coatings and pigment slurries. The viscometer is a well established instrument for predicting runnability and coat weight. Kaltec continues to manufacture, sell and service these high quality instruments on a world-wide basis.

In addition to the Hercules Viscometer, Kaltec has acquired manufacturing rights to produce the AA-GWR Water Retention Meter. This instrument is used in conjunction with the viscometer to measure the de-watering properties of coating colours. The instrument is low cost, portable, and used by both paper mills and suppliers to identify potential retention problems during production and trials.

Sales, service, and customer support for U.S. customers are handled by the Novi, Michigan location. Outside the U.S., Kaltec has appointed authorized agents in several countries. We currently have agents in the following locations: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, P. R. China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Singapore, Taiwan ROC, and Thailand.
