Now it’s OK to Abuse Your Bostwick Consistometer

Share Article

CSC Scientific has manufactured the Bostwick Consistometer for more than 50 years and has seen legions of beat-up, misshapen and mangled devices. CSC devised and now offers an add-on to the Bostwick called the “Abuse Protection Option” which terminates a lion’s share of damage caused from mistreatment by operators.

I's tough to break a Bostwick with an APO installed.

The CSC Scientific Bostwick Consistometer is a simple rugged stainless steel trough, with a gate and calibrated etched markings on the bottom. It has been used since 1925 to measure the thickness or consistency of products like sauces, toppings, slurries, paints and other flowing materials.

The Bostwick is a tough device suited to the harsh conditions of a manufacturing site. It takes ingenuity to find ways to destroy it. King Cong like personnel find ways to make the Bostwick inoperable, but most of the serious damage happens when it is repeatedly dropped from varying heights onto concrete floors or when it gets under forklift trucks. These actions tend to bend it to a degree that makes it not function.

CSC has devised an optional add-on called the Abuse Protection Option (APO) that minimized damage from all but the most creative abusers. The APO can be added to a new unit before shipment or when a Bostwick is being repaired by CSC.

Many users have asked why CSC waited so long. It was a longtime customer who devised the solution. The APO is available form stock.
