Peanut Butter Viscosity

Peanut Butter Viscosity

Peanut Butter Viscosity

Does anyone have or know where I can find the viscosity of peanut butter (not peanut oil)at various temperatures?  I need it at 120 and 130 deg. F.

RE: Peanut Butter Viscosity

Dear Michiganmike..

I found the following information from (Viking Pump,Inc)

Peanut Butter:
             Viscosity ranges from 10000-100000 SSU,varying as make up and temperature. Normal pumping temperature is from 90-180 deg F. SP.Gr.: 1.1 to 1.2

Regards  Whylie

RE: Peanut Butter Viscosity

Here is another value, this one from Tri-Clover.  Peanut butter, 77,400 SSU at 110-140 deg F with a specific gravity of 1.2.

The value probably varies by manufacturer due to differences in product formulation, i.e. amount and type of oil used as well as the grinding of the peanut.

RE: Peanut Butter Viscosity

Dear Michiganmike,

Smooth or crunchy?  

sorry, mike, cudn't help myself.
