|Automated Cloud Point and
Pour Point of Petroleum Products
Determines the temperature below which solid hydrocarbon crystals form in aviation fuels. The sample is cooled with continuous stirring in a Dewar-type sample tube until crystals appear.
Features and Benefits
Conforms to ASTM D97, D2500 and related specifications
Direct cooling system eliminates the need for solvent cooling baths
One-stage cooling system provides temperatures as low as 35°C and a two-stage cooling system down to 80°C
Single start/stop push button makes system simple to use
Minimal installation required to set-up software and instrumentation

Automatic Freezing Point System
Pour Point DetectionThe
pour point detection system provides automated testing with the accuracy
and repeatability in accordance with ASTM D97 and related international
test methods. The automated operation includes the removing of the sample
from the cooling jacket at 3°C intervals and tilting it to a 90°
angle as prescribed by the test method until no flow is observed. Contact
of the cold sample with the two Pt-100 temperature probes position just
above the surface liquid level when the test jar is tilted identifies
sample flow. The test jar is automatically returned to the cooling jacket
and sampled again until no flow is detected for 5 seconds. The pour
point result is then reported at 3°C higher than the temperature
at which the sample ceased to flow in accordance with the test method.
|Please specify voltage and cooling requirements when ordering. You may order a multiple configuration system (any combination of freezing point, cloud and cloud/pour point, and cold filter plugging point) with up to six heads. Please specify each measurement head with its associated catalog number using the sequential number combination. A two-head cloud point system would be KLA-11 A two-head cloud point and cloud/pour point system would be KLA-13, and a three-head cloud point, pour point and freezing point system would be KLA-125.|
