|Abstract: ||Two new techniques for measuring viscosities at high pressure have been implemented at the
TERMOCAL laboratory in order to obtain accurate values of thermophysical properties such as
viscosity, especially at high pressures.
A vibrating-wire viscometer has been developed to accurately measure viscosities over the
working ranges T = (283.15 to 423.15) K and p = (0.1 to 140) MPa. The setup of the equipment
includes calibration with toluene and its validation with n-dodecane.
A falling body viscometer able to measure viscosities at T = (253.15 to 523.15) K and p = (0.1 to 140) MPa is also presented in this work. Results of calibration with toluene and its verification with n-heptane and n-dodecane are reported.
The detailed uncertainty budgets for both techniques are included in this work. Moreover, the
paper studies the compatibility of the results obtained using both techniques according to their
corresponding uncertainties in order to obtain reliable data. New viscosity measurements of
1,2,4-trimethylbenzene and 2,2,4-trimethylpentane have been performed and included in the
