Viscosity in Centistokes For Viscosities of 32 to 100 Saybolt Universal Seconds:
Centistokes = .2253 x SUS – centistokes
CS = .2253 SUS –centistokes
Viscosity in Centistokes For Viscosities of 100 to 240 Saybolt Universal Seconds:
Centistokes = .2193 x SUS – centistokes
CS = .2193 SUS –centistokes
Viscosity in Centistokes For Viscosities Greater Than 240 Saybolt Universal Seconds:
Centistokes = centistokes
CS = centistokes

HYDRAULIC FLUID FORMULAS NOTE: Saybolt Universal Seconds is often abbreviated SSU.
